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.
