“BWise is the cornerstone of our GRC portfolio,” said Adena Friedman, President, Nasdaq, during the Global BWise Customer Summit in New York. “By integrating information security within the BWise GRC platform we can take a targeted approach to risk assessment, enabling Chief Information Security Officers to focus on the most pressing IT risks, including cyber threats. This new solution is among the first results from our increased investment in R&D in 2015. We believe with BWise InfoSec we can disrupt the world of information security technology.”

Luc Brandts, CTO of BWise, added, “We conducted extensive user review sessions and involved analyst experts throughout the development process. As a result, we know the solution will set new standards for ease of implementation, integration and use.”

BWise InfoSec helps users implement treatment plans for remediation and ensure appropriate follow up of non-conformities. Its strong reporting capabilities allow users to generate a Statement of Applicability, as defined by ISO 27001, and a security assessment report – directly from the application with a single click.

The solution can integrate with vulnerability scanners, security incident and event monitoring tools, baseline analyzers, and IT incident ticketing tools. It offers real-time insights into the threats and vulnerabilities that may affect an organization’s information security management system.

The Global BWise Customer Summit is an exclusive forum for the international BWise GRC community to discuss the latest GRC trends and developments.

NEW YORK and DEN BOSCH, Netherlands, July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BWise, a NASDAQ OMX company and a global leader in Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) software, today announced that it is positioned as a Champion for Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (EGRC) Platforms in Info-Tech Research Group’s most recent Vendor Landscape report.

Scale up GRC Processes

The Info-Tech Vendor Landscape report states, “With Big Data on the horizon and increasing cloud uptake, eGRC solutions will become more prevalent to help ensure compliance of corporate data with regulatory and internal standards. Organizations will have to scale up their GRC processes to keep up with growing data feeds and scale out to ensure vendors are also compliant with regulatory controls.”

Continuing growth for BWise

“It is an honor to be situated as a Champion in the recent Info-Tech eGRC Vendor Landscape,” said BWise CEO Robert Pijselman. The report is recognition of our consistent growth and progress supporting clients around the world. It also validates our continued focus on technological investments and the synergies of BWise integrated with other NASDAQ OMX solutions.”

According to the report, “Large multinational companies looking for an enterprise-wide GRC suite should consider NASDAQ OMX BWise. It is an established solution that has the backing of exchange powerhouse NASDAQ OMX. On-premises installations are more flexible than others that offer it. The entire system is actually installed behind your firewall and offerings can be spun up and down as needed.”
