VioPoint, a consultancy company from Auburn Hills, Michigan, selected Modulo Risk Manager to automate and centralize risk management and compliance projects with their clients.
Focused on financial, health and other areas of the private sector to identify, assess and manage risks, including IT compliance, web application security and disaster recovery, VioPoint examined three other competing products. After that, Rob Cote, VP of Sales and Marketing for VioPoint, decided to establish a partnership with Modulo. “When we complete a project, the customer has the ability to manage future risk assessments themselves through the use of the tools we offer,” says Cote.
The choice was made considering Modulo’s Risk Manager multi-application coverage. “It has specific focus on managing the risks associated with information assets. Risk Manager has the capability to assess critical compliance mandates such as HIPAA, PCI and SOX, as well as best practice standards and frameworks from ISO and NIST.”
Modulo’s solution helps IT and security professionals automate and streamline the data needed to conduct risk assessments and compliance projects. “Risk Manager cuts the time frame required for these projects from six or eight weeks to two or three,” says Cote. “The vast majority of clients report a 30% savings on the resources needed for upfront data collection and 80-90% time savings on reporting processes,” he points out.
VioPoint plans to continue working with Modulo to develop additional features and capabilities that customers have suggested. He says that so far Modulo has exceeded his expectations and those of the clients. “They are customer-focused, flexible, and committed to the highest quality of service.”
