Trustwave GRC Version 4.0 Unveiled at RSA

CHICAGO (April 15, 2009) -  Trustwave, the leading provider of on-demand data security and payment card industry compliance management solutions to businesses and organizations throughout the world, unveils a major update to its Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) solution at the RSA Conference, booth #316, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Trustwave's solution - called Trustwave GRC - automates enterprise risk management and compliance validation across multiple industry and regulatory standards - such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA). Trustwave GRC is designed to streamline compliance by eliminating traditionally labor-intensive tasks such as internal and third party compliance reviews, completion of multiple compliance assessment questionnaires, business and IT risk assessments, and internal or external audit testing.

Trustwave GRC also automates a compliance team's many other key work activities, such as vendor management, pre-audit evidence collection, SOX quarterly process certifications, asset/data classification reviews, and business impact analysis questionnaires. Trustwave GRC aggregates reporting into a central dashboard with the ability to incorporate multiple workflows, regulations and policies, and organizational views into one integrated software solution.

The enhanced Trustwave GRC includes several new features to better manage and automate compliance such as:

  • Redesigned user and administration interfaces: A redesigned user and administration interface that is fully configurable within the Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Questionnaire versioning: Full questionnaire versioning with multiple states
  • Action item workflow: Expanded advanced workflow capabilities including remediation, verification, audit, incident, exception, vulnerability and custom action tracking
  • Cognos® reporting: Business Intelligence (BI) reporting through Cognos®

According to the recent Aberdeen Group Survey, Continuously Compliant: Ensuring Proactive, Comprehensive Compliance1:
