KnowBe4's Cloud-Based Compliance Manager Adds Self-Assessment Capabilities

KnowBe4, a provider of security software products addressing the needs of business owners, IT, HR, and end users, has announced the spring 2014 release of its KnowBe4 Compliance Manager (KCM) with new self-assessment capabilities. KCM is a cloud-based audit and compliance workflow automation tool that simplifies and consolidates the management of compliance requirements.

“KnowBe4 Compliance Manager is essentially a work flow automation tool for compliance. Meaning you can assign a particular control to someone, that person gets a task and once he/she is done with that task they upload the evidence into Compliance Manager,” said Stu Sjouwerman, founder and CEO of KnowBe4.

The use of KCM allows managers in the IT field to monitor business requirements and assign controls and restrictions to maintain compliancy. This has proven to yield less risk for its users, preventing companies from incurring millions of dollars in security breach costs. This new system has allowed for IT to incorporate compliance standards, which is the foundation for data security.

Businesses who employ KMC can utilize compliance standards as part of their security baseline which enables them to work on more difficult levels of IT security.“The result is you are much quicker in getting up and running,” noted Sjouwerman.

According to the vendor, KMC is priced for small to medium enterprises making it very affordable and easy to use.
