The Bottom Line: Hyperproof has created a streamlined compliance operations platform that seamlessly cross references controls in an environment in order to save time and money for an enterprise.

Companies are under increased pressure today to adopt compliance standards as a prerequisite to actively participate in specific industries. In fact, compliance driven frameworks have been endorsed by more than 80 countries and 40 states that impose regulations as a perquisite to conducting business. The payment card industry (PCI) standard and Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are two prominent examples of compliance frameworks that have impacted countless organizations. While enacting specific controls makes sense for any company hoping to conduct business in a regulated industry, reaching the compliance thresholds can get challenging. Knowing which controls map where, and how to organize the process at minimal cost helps companies conduct successful compliance operations.

Hyperproof addresses this challenge head-on and helps organizations build compliance programs that establish trust and maintain proof. By looking at ongoing issues impacting the successful deployment of compliance frameworks, Hyperproof developed a product that achieves continuous compliance. The resulting compliance operations platform keeps data privacy and infosec programs up-to-date while ensuring organizations are prepared for the next audit. They achieved this level of efficiency by introducing a new way of thinking when it comes to deploying a compliance framework. It all starts with Hyperproof’s compliance dashboard scanning the current environment for existing controls, which are then collected to formulate a percentage of how many controls map over, which then gets displayed in an easy to understand dashboard.  

While the compliance dashboard has a sleek and restrained look, the power of Hyperproof’s compliance operations platform takes place behind the scenes. Most users will start using the platform with the overview tab to see a breakdown of all active programs and individual audits from employees. Listing individual employee tasks on the overview page helps ensure accountability and, if needed, reminds users to complete their designated action items. The team at Hyperproof calls this process Freshness: keeping detailed statistics on employee workload to reflect the completion state of each audit. Hyperproof’s compliance operations platform also boasts internal Slack-like communication that lets team members chat and remind one another/tag them for work that needs completing as well as a Zoom interface to launch web-hosted meetings. While Hyperproof supports seamless communication between team members, the product's scaling functionality really shines.

Hyperproof’s compliance operations tool has revolutionized the process for achieving and maintaining compliance, which was achieved through a keen understanding of what businesses need to empower compliance: efficiency and standardization of compliance operations. The platform includes a library with 14 compliance framework templates that include pre-loaded controls and requirements. There are also 42 templates that have no controls mapped, but do include compliance requirements, this means that a company would have to map the different controls. However, Hyperproof constantly adds to its library, ensuring the most efficient dashboard for frameworks. They have even included an option to create a custom compliance program should a company need it. The ability to create a custom compliance program lets companies tailor their frameworks to specific needs from the library of pre-loaded controls and requirements.  

When initiating a new compliance framework, the Jumpstart feature scans the entire environment for any controls and requirements that would overlap with the new compliance framework selected. This way when a company wants to efficiently scale their compliance coverage, they can inherit controls from one framework and apply them to the new framework. The Jumpstart feature offers a completion percentage for the new framework based on the overlap of previous framework completions. Having a streamlined approach through the reuse of existing controls provides near-seamless scaling for companies forced to manage multiple compliance frameworks.

Hyperproof has created the ideal compliance operations platform for organizations large and small. They offer a professional price point that's recommended for most businesses; however they are open to negotiation, based on company size. Hyperproof has successfully created a compliance operations platform that ensures a company knows they are prepared, able to engage their organization and scale efficiently.
