The cloud solution for risk-based information security
TraceCSO simplifies information security and compliance management
- What kind of control do I have over my information if it lives in a cloud-based system?
- Can TraceCSO help if my organization has not formal information security program currently in place?
- My organization uses a third party for IT audits. Can we integrate TraceCSO into our existing process?
- How do I contact support?
- Do I have to implement all features to use TraceCSO?
How it Works
We've compiled a list of items that can help you compare TraceCSO to other potential solutions.
A Comprehensive and Integrated Solution
TraceCSO is a single, scalable solution built from the ground up and incorporates all of the functional areas necessary to evaluate, create, implement and manage a complete risk-based information security program. Organizations don't need any additional third-party software. Functional areas of TraceCSO include risk, vulnerability, audit, compliance, policy, process, training and vendor management. Most commercial solutions today take a piecemeal approach that greatly undermines any information security program. Without integration between all of the necessary tools and a repository of current regulations, data cannot seamlessly communicate, which results in significant cost and time to implement and manage a complete and ongoing program. There are solutions that integrate various tools and report holistically, but they require individual licenses and come with learning curves.
Ease of Use and Built-in Expertise
TraceCSO has a user-friendly interface and its intuitive initial setup provides step-by-step guides that allow non-security experts to implement and manage a complete risk-based information security program. Subject matter expertise is embedded into TraceCSO's robust wizards, helping reduce the need for in-house IT security staff. TraceCSO is flexible to accommodate tech-savvy security experts as well, offering drill down capabilities into specific areas that bypass the built-in guides.
Current market solutions are built for enterprises that have enterprise-level IT resources and experts who can manage the enormous amount of manual tasks and data that are generated from disparate systems.
Compliance by Default
TraceCSO places information at the forefront, using a unique approach that supports hundreds of regulatory authorities and more than 25,000 global citations and regulations while mapping the organization's industry-specific requirements back to standard Trace controls. As a result, your organization is enabled to implement a best practice risk-based information security program that organically leads to compliance.
Current market solutions are disjointed and provide only one tool, such as risk assessment or vulnerability management, which leaves organizations unable to implement a complete information security program. Without integration between all components and a repository of current regulations, data cannot seamlessly communicate between the functional areas and automate compliance. That leaves users with unanswered and lengthy compliance surveys to complete.
To increase efficiency and streamline the implementation process, TraceCSO automates many manual tasks. Integration across all areas of the software allows data from the risk assessment to automatically populate and communicate between every functional area of the system reducing redundancy and streamlining audit and compliance processes.
Current market solutions are disjointed and provide only one tool, such as risk assessment or vulnerability management, necessary to implement a complete information security program. Without integration between all of these necessary tools and a repository of current regulations, data cannot seamlessly communicate between the functional areas generating a lot of data that result in manual tasks, unnecessary redundancy and extended implementation time and costs.
TraceCSO is an end-to-end solution priced competitively with products that offer only one functional area of an information security or risk and compliance program. By streamlining, automating and integrating all of the functional areas required to implement a comprehensive risk-based information security program, organizations of any size can optimize their information security resources.
Current market solutions are disjointed and do not incorporate all of the tools necessary to manage an ongoing risk-based information security program. Solutions that attempt to incorporate multiple tools often lead to significantly higher costs and longer implementation time compared to TraceCSO.
By reducing the burden of managing a complete risk-based information security program and determining the right controls for the organization, TraceCSO helps organizations optimize their IT resources. The need for additional staff is reduced, processes are streamlined by less redundancy and the implemented controls are cost effective.
Current market solutions are built for organizations with enterprise-level IT resources and experts who manage enormous amounts of manual tasks and data generated from disparate systems. These solutions do not provide expert guidance for effective controls and do not optimize an organization's IT resources. In addition, organizations that want to integrate disparate systems significantly increase the burden on their IT staff during implementation.
When an organization gets stuck at any decision point within TraceCSO, TraceSecurity offers unlimited live support.
Many current market solutions do not offer customer support and recommend organizations contact a consultant. Others offer customer support as a professional service with associated costs.
