The Network Receives 2013 GRC 20/20 Technology Innovation Award

The Network, Inc., a leading provider of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that the company’s enterprise SaaS-based Integrated GRC suite, the first natively integrated GRC software platform in the compliance industry, has received the 2013 Technology Innovation Award and been recognized by GRC 20/20 Research as ‘the Apple of GRC’ for its innovative design and end user experience.

The Network’s Integrated GRC Suite provides organizations with enterprise-wide visibility of compliance activities in order to help companies protect themselves from risk, detect issues early and correct the underlying causes of misconduct. Released in early 2012, the Suite integrates ethics and compliance data, including incidents, cases, policies, employee training courses, surveys, risk assessments, and remediation or preventative action plans, in one secure suite, providing insight into the key compliance issues facing an organization.

“We are honored to receive this GRC 20/20 Technology Innovator Award,” said Luis Ramos, chief executive officer of The Network. “When we began building our Integrated GRC Suite, we decided to take a fresh approach to GRC, both in architecture and design, and turn GRC on its head by focusing on employee engagement as well as highly functional administrative capabilities.”

In announcing the 2013 GRC 20/20 Technology Innovator Award, Michael Rasmussen, GRC Principal Analyst for GRC 20/20, describes The Network’s Integrated GRC Suite as the ‘Apple of GRC’ for its “design and end user experience. While most GRC applications focus on the back-end complexity of GRC, The Network has delivered a platform that is fresh, beautiful, and simply elegant for the user. Where other GRC technology providers focus on the professional side of the equation, The Network’s solution adds interface assets that work to engage employees, while providing administrators and executives with the tools needed to truly manage compliance in a proactive fashion.”

“At the end of the day, GRC is part of everyone’s job description,” said Rasmussen. “Forward thinking companies are looking for the user experience and how to get employees more involved by providing elegant interfaces that employees enjoy working with.”

Rasmussen continued: “The Network’s Integrated GRC Suite blends GRC technology with awareness and communications expertise to help drive ethical culture. By doing so, The Network’s solution helps organizations to prevent issues, and not just comply with minimum compliance standards.”

In acknowledging the recognition, Ramos stated, “This award further validates that our approach of focusing on employees and not just administrators in addressing compliance matters is the key to driving enterprise performance.”

A full description of the award can be found on the GRC 20/20 website.

Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone. But what if you could automate provisioning and deployment to deliver error free environments faster? What could you do with your free time?
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
