New York - 21 October 2015

BWise® InfoSec sets new standards for ease of implementation, integration and use

Nasdaq’s BWise (Nasdaq: NDAQ), a global leader in enterprise Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (eGRC), today announced the release of its new solution: BWise® Information Security (InfoSec), at its Global BWise Customer Summit in New York.

BWise® InfoSec will help enterprises ensure they meet all relevant information security regulations, industry standards and contractual obligations. This will enable them to manage the constant stream of changes in their IT environment more easily.

The solution, based on the analyst-recognized BWise® GRC platform, helps enterprises protect themselves from IT risks, reducing the burden of IT compliance and streamlining the reporting process.

“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.
