We’re pleased to announce that OpenPages and Network Frontiers have partnered to deliver the Unified Compliance Framework (UCF) to the OpenPages customer base. The addition of the UCF content into the OpenPages IT governance solution – OpenPages ITG supports OpenPages’ goal of providing its customers with a holistic approach to managing IT risk and compliance.
The partnership provides strong synergies for our customer base of enterprise GRC professionals, many of whom are looking to OpenPages for IT risk and compliance management. Previewed at OPEN 2009 – the OpenPages European Network Summit recently held in London – the UCF data gives OpenPages customers access to the most comprehensive set of IT policies and controls that cross multiple regulations, thus reducing the time commitment and costs associated with complying with the slew of IT risk and compliance mandates nearly all companies are faced with today. In a survey conducted at OPEN 2009, 93% of organizations stated that within 2-3 years they are likely to converge or coordinate IT risk and compliance with GRC management.
The announcement was well received by industry experts including Michael Rasmussen, President of Corporate Integrity, a GRC strategy advisory firm:
“In today’s economy, wasting valuable resources on costly and time-consuming processes associated with compliance and risk management can be damaging to IT GRC programs. With the UCF enhancements to the OpenPages Platform offering, customers are given the tools to more quickly and effectively comply with a multitude of regulations and from there, can focus more attention on ensuring that their IT GRC programs are sustainable, repeatable and increase transparency across the enterprise.”
