Symantec to release latest version of GRC suite

Security company Symantec will release the latest version of the IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) offering, Symantec Control Compliance Suite 11.

The new release is expected to feature the new Control Compliance Suite Risk Manager module which enables security leaders to better understand and communicate risks to the business environment from their IT infrastructure.

In addition, the Risk Manager module will translate technical issues into risks relevant to business processes, deliver customised views of IT risk for different stakeholders and help prioritise remediation efforts based on business criticality.

The suite will also feature a flexible, scalable data framework that is critical to provide a data-driven view to multiple audiences. The framework also simplifies the process of bringing together and "normalizing" information from multiple different sources.

The new release will facilitate effective communication around IT risk by allowing security leaders to customise dashboards with audience-specific risk metrics.

Symantec Information Security Group senior vice-president Art Gilliland said the ability to move beyond the traditional role of technical expert and become a business risk advisor is critical to the success of today’s IT security leaders.

"Symantec’s next generation IT GRC solution will empower information security leaders to drive real change and accountability with their business counterparts at a time when security threats are becoming boardroom level discussions," said Gilliland.
