New software to make compliance a breeze

We’re pedalling fast to catch up following a very busy time in the run up to and aftermath of Infosecurity Europe in London recently. This was the first time we attended and we felt that things went well. We were pleased with the number of visitors to our stand (which was smartly branded with our now-standard strapline, ‘The one-stop-shop for information security books, tools, training and consultancy’) and felt that the general quality of delegate was good.

We used the show to launch several important new products, all of which were well received. Perhaps most excitingly, we introduced two new software tools that transform the process of becoming and remaining compliant with ISO 27001.

* Through Vigilant Software, a new joint venture with software house Top Solutions, we introduced vsRisk, an affordable and intuitive tool that transforms the process for performing an ISO 27001-compliant risk assessment. vsRiskTM is a unique, purpose built application that dramatically reduces the time and cost of pursuing ISO 27001 compliance and is compatible with multiple related standards. It is far more straightforward to use than many of the existing risk assessments tools and requires no specialist training – we think it will be particularly useful for mid-sized organisations. It also costs substantially less than other systems, which we know will make sense to any organisation! Bought directly from us it costs only £895.00/US$1,770.60/EUR1,330.35. It is also available from quality resellers at the regular retail price of £995.00.

* Q-Pulse for ISO 27001 is a product we have developed jointly with Gael, which is the UK market leader in compliance management software systems. It combines Gael’s best-selling compliance management technology with our proprietary toolkit for the documentation and process management of the ISO 27001 standard. By automating vital tasks, such as document approvals, and providing easy-to-use audit management tools, the system provides an efficient means for driving ISO 27001 workflows throughout the organisation and ensuring that compliance is upheld.
