Acuity Risk Management has announced a new release of its STREAM integrated risk manager.

Version 2.0 of the free governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solution provides users with better visibility of and easier access to detailed information, according to the company. It said that this includes a personalised home page which provides summary status information, 'one click' navigation, email alerting and advanced workflow and action management to plan and control GRC activities.

Launched next week at the Infosecurity Europe conference in London, Acuity said STREAM Version 2.0 is designed to make it easy to rapidly customise, configure and implement enterprise GRC solutions and provide valuable, actionable intelligence for business managers.

The software comes with a range of pre-configured applications and training packs and can be downloaded free of charge for use on a single computer, while users can see summary information on their personal schedules of actions, assessments and approvals; a single click will take them to their personal GRC content.

Simon Marvell, partner at Acuity, said: “STREAM Version 2.0 takes GRC to a new level of risk visibility, control and ease of use across all business sectors where there is a need to demonstrate compliance, manage operational risk and provide business assurance.

“In addition to delivering improved risk and compliance efficiency, STREAM provides better targeting of resources, fewer business disruptions from incidents, non-compliances and failed audits, along with greater risk assurance and business reputation.”
