MEGA International, a global software firm recognized as a leader in enterprise architecture for 11 consecutive years, announces a technology partnership with Unified Compliance and their product, the Unified Compliance Framework® (UCF®) to provide an IT compliance solution helping organizations manage multiple regulations in an easy and efficient way.
To comply with a growing number of new laws and regulations, companies must keep track of all the changes and specificities of each regulation around the world and define the appropriate controls they must put in place to mitigate the risk of non-compliance. To help them succeed in their compliance management, MEGA has developed an out-of-the-box integration to give its customers access to the UCF’s library of compliance documents and controls.
The UCF is the world’s largest library database of interconnected compliance documents and the world’s only Common Controls framework available on the market. The UCF data is accessible through the SaaS portal, the Common Controls Hub®. With more than 10,000 IT control statements mapped to more than 1,000 regulations, standards, and frameworks, the UCF library contains a large number of authority documents across many industries and regulations, including Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI, HIPAA, NIST, ISO 27001, COBIT, and many more.
“MEGA is thrilled to be the first Enterprise Architecture company to partner with Unified Compliance to leverage the application inventory completed with HOPEX so customers can understand which IT assets are impacted by regulations. This integration helps companies easily manage multiple regulations to avoid duplication of efforts and reduce time and cost of compliance,” comments Luca de Risi – Chief Operating Office of MEGA
MEGA’s HOPEX IRM combined with the Unified Compliance Framework (UCF) automates IT compliance initiatives by providing a simple way to manage and monitor compliance with a wide range of IT regulations and standards. It shows how to implement the right controls for applicable regulations and identify which controls are common to multiple applicable regulatory documents thus helping companies avoiding duplication of efforts and reducing time and cost of compliance.
The solution builds an inventory of relevant regulations by importing available UCF policies, requirements, and controls and keeps them up to date. It also provides out-of-the-box reports and dashboards to monitor compliance level, remediation plans, and their impact on the IT landscape.
“With MEGA, Unified Compliance has gained a powerful, award-winning EA partner whose customers can leverage the UCF data to gain an immediate understanding of which controls should be implemented to provide the evidence needed to prove compliance across multiple regulations and standards. The collaboration between MEGA and Unified Compliance enhances efficiencies and reduces the compliance effort in terms of resources and budgets, while streamlining an organization's GRC programs,” said Dorian Cougias—Unified Compliance co-founder.
