New Risk Assessment Tool for ISO27001 Consultants Simplifies and Accelerates Compliance Process for Clients

Following the successful launch of the vsRisk ISO27001 compliance tool at Infosecurity Europe 2007, Vigilant Software has launched a complementary software tool for IT consultants and information security specialists. vsRisk Consultant Edition (vsRCE) is a powerful new software product that will enable information security consultants to deploy vsRisk as their preferred risk assessment tool in up to 10 different clients.

Targeted at specialist consultants dealing with ISO27001 compliance, vsRCE is an affordable and intuitive risk assessment management tool for the IT consultant community that allows consultants the ability to directly support their clients' risk assessment activity from an off-site location. vsRCE allows clients to create and export risk assessment files that can be analysed on the consultants' own workstations or laptops, and then re-imported into the client's own software.

vsRCE allows IT consultants to manage up to ten separate risk assessments or risk assessment in up to ten different organisations, each of which must have purchased its own copy of vsRisk. By working in harmony with its sister application vsRisk, vsRCE will dramatically reduce the time and effort it takes for companies to achieve ISO27001 compliance, transferring an important element of the work to the consultant and ensuring that the work of the project team can be monitored more closely.

In addition to supporting ISO/IEC27001, vsRCE supports ISO/IEC27002 (17799); complies with BS7799-3:2006; conforms to ISO/IEC TR 13335-3:1998 and NIST SP 800-30; and complies with the UK's Risk Assessment Standard.

Vigilant Software is a joint venture between IT Governance Limited, the one-stop-shop for books, tools and information on ISO27001 compliance, and Top Solutions (UK) Limited, an award-winning developer of risk management software tools.

Alan Calder, Chief Executive of IT Governance, commented, "vsRCE is the perfect complement to vsRisk and offers a major enhancement to vsRisk users. By employing a consultant who uses vsRCE, companies can simplify and speed the process of achieving ISO27001 compliance. For consultants, it offers a means of providing greater added value and is therefore a powerful competitive advantage."
