MetricStream Launches GRCIntelligence.com - An Award-Winning Content

Portal for Curated GRC Intelligence

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MetricStream, a

market-leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions

announced today the launch of its cloud-based content portal,

GRCIntelligence.com, which serves as a one-stop source for GRC

content, regulatory feeds, and market intelligence. The portal is an

open standards-based content aggregation site, which enables GRC

professionals to subscribe to curated information on a wide array of

topics including regulatory compliance, audit, risk, vendor due

diligence, IT risk and compliance, and control management frameworks.

The content covers multiple industries including BFSI, Retail & CPG,

Hi-Tech, Manufacturing, and Healthcare, and can be easily translated

into valuable and actionable insights within the context of the

organization's GRC program. The portal streams content directly as RSS

feeds, alerts or email notifications to any GRCIntelligence.com

subscriber.

GRCIntelligence.com was recently recognized as a recipient of the 2014

GRC Technology Innovation Awards hosted by independent analyst firm

GRC 20/20 Research. Commenting on the awards, Michael Rasmussen, Chief

GRC Pundit at GRC 20/20 Research said, "MetricStream's

GRCIntelligence.com is an innovative content portal that enables GRC

professionals to access and integrate the latest GRC content from a

variety of knowledge providers and information sources through a

single online content store. It enables organizations to source and

integrate GRC content from multiple sources across risk, compliance

and audit with their MetricStream GRC applications in real-time."

GRCIntelligence.com content easily integrates with the MetricStream

GRC Platform through the GRCIntelligence application, enabling users

to seamlessly access content as it is sourced within the respective

MetricStream application. The content is delivered into the

subscriber's MetricStream GRC application through channels in the

GRCIntelligence application layer. MetricStream users have the

capability to review the content as alerts, identify internal action

items, log issues, trigger workflows, and notify users. This feature

helps MetricStream users stay ahead of changes in the regulatory and

compliance environment on a real time basis, as well as understand the

impact of these changes on their organizational GRC framework within

the application itself.

The GRCIntelligence.com portal currently offers content from over 50

leading content partners and sources including Unified Compliance

Framework (UCF), Risk Spotlight, Shared Assessments, Code of Federal

Regulations (CFR), and Clear Market Practices, and new content

partners and sources are being continuously added to its portfolio.

Subscribers can gain substantial know-how on a variety of related

topics and can directly access critical regulatory reports and

analysis, the latest updates to federal and state laws and

regulations, and comprehensive risk and control libraries that can

strengthen their overall risk and compliance management efforts.

"Keeping up with the pace of change across multiple laws, regulations,

and mandates can be costly, and time-consuming," said Jo Reimers,

Director of Regulatory Content at Clear Market Practices. She

continued, "Our aim is to alleviate these challenges and provide

relevant, timely, and well-structured regulatory content through

GRCIntelligence.com. We are delighted to partner with MetricStream,

and we believe that our content, integrated with MetricStream's

industry leading GRC platform, will enable customers to successfully

navigate today's complex regulatory landscape."

"GRCIntelligence.com will provide MetricStream customers with highly

curated content to support them as they build out world class GRC

programs," said Vasant Balasubramanian, Vice President of Product

Management at MetricStream. He added, "This sophisticated intelligence

capability is embedded within the MetricStream GRC Platform, providing

users with real-time GRC intelligence and actionable insights. This

offering further complements and strengthens our industry leading GRC

solutions, and represents MetricStream's commitment to providing our

customers with innovative and comprehensive solutions."
