Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) & Integrated Risk Management (IRM) Platforms
Ignyte Assurance Platform is a leader in collaborative security and integrated GRC solutions for global corporations. For corporate risk and compliance officers who depend heavily on the protection of their resources, Ignyte is the ultimate translation engine for simplifying compliance across regulations, standards and guidelines.
- The Ignyte platform is used by leading corporations in diverse industries, such as Healthcare, Defense, and Technology.
- Ignyte operationalizes compliance for many organizations through the use of the SCF controls and can be used to facilitate a SCF Certification, based on the SCF Information Assurance Program (IAP):
- The IAP program leverages the SCF controls and is designed to help organizations quickly get up to speed on completing information assurance tasks; and
- Ignyte helps organizations scale these tasks to make audit-preparation and audits much more efficient.
LogicGate utilizes the SCF to define how we map controls between the standards and regulations which are included as part of our core content repository.
- LogicGate's flexible data mapping capabilities allow users to easily view relationships between these controls, as well as between other critical data objects, such as risks, assessments, evidence, policies, and assets. Through these relationships, risk teams can perform an assessment on one control framework and then easily determine the compliance status of a mapped control framework, helping to reduce the amount of time and effort spent by teams needing to ask for the same evidence or attestations over time.
- The database technology that LogicGate is built on also enables organizations to easily adjust relationships between controls and other items as regulatory requirements and standards change.

- Operates the program across the entire organization on a day by day basis; and
- Makes it simple to demonstrate compliance across over 100 laws, regulations and industry standards, ensuring the organization is always audit ready.
- Fully integrates the SCF's controls and allows organizations to easily compare their security program against over 100 security and privacy frameworks by simply mapping the controls necessary for any additional standard or regulation:
- Everyone in the company can log in and use the platform, which makes MyVCM's licensing model the most cost-effective GRC/IRM solution for multiple-user involvement.
- It offers a "single-pane-of-glass" reporting, automated workflow management, and integration with some of the world’s leading platforms including OneLogin, Microsoft and Google.

- ZenGRC streamlines control management to provide tangible value because it speeds up audit and vendor management tracking and consolidates risk mitigation tasks.

SimpleRisk is a free and open source GRC tool that leverages the SCF, giving our customers what they've been asking for - an easy way to load up and utilize controls for various compliance frameworks.

- Within SimpleRisk, clients are presented with a list of the frameworks represented with the SCF and the option to select which ones apply to their organization.
