SC Magazine Names Modulo an "Industry Innovator" for Security Infrastructure for the Second Year

ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--

Modulo, a leading provider of technology governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that the company has been named a 2013 Industry Innovator by SC Magazine. This is the second year in a row that Modulo has been given this honor, which is assigned to only a handful of standout IT security products out of hundreds evaluated every year by the rigorous SC Labs.

The article reports that GRC is at once the biggest pain point (arguably) of most large organizations and the most important task that does not usually get done right. Modulo is recognized for its vision of what GRC in the IT-enabled enterprise really looks like and how to build a holistic model that is easily consumable.

Peter Stephenson (News - Alert), SC Magazine's technology editor, reports: "This Innovator goes way beyond typical GRC systems and integrates mobile devices tightly as part of the system's capability."

"One of the most interesting upheavals we found was the application of the concept of maturity. Capability maturity models have been around awhile, but they usually are focused on some aspect of engineering, such as the security engineering capability maturity model. Applying a maturity model to GRC is a big step toward understanding how your GRC stacks up against applicable standards. In many regards, it enables CISOs to fill the role of chief risk officer, because it clearly defines and positions the business against the standards that apply to the particular type of organization," continues Stephenson.

"To be named as one of the Innovators of the Year, again, by the highly respected SC Magazine team, continues to be a great honor for Modulo and the recognition provides important awareness for how enterprises are maturing their GRC processes for more effective security, compliance and governance," said Stephen Gant, general manager, North America, Modulo.

SC Magazine notes several other Modulo Risk Manager capabilities as key to its innovation:
