What is IT GRC? New Video

By: Absolute Editorial Team | 4/30/2013

We recently released a new video in our Ask Absolute series answering the question, What is IT GRC? 

Governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) is an umbrella term to describe an organization’s approach to these closely-related areas, reflecting how an integrated approach to all three can benefit an organization. GRC for the endpoint is the tools and data designed to ensure proper governance, risk management and compliance. Absolute Computrace provides the foundational support for GRC for the endpoint, through the world's only persistent device connection.

As many of you know, the endpoint represents a significant point of risk. Analysts agree that the top data breaches are due to device loss/theft or misuse by insiders. These data breaches, and other non-compliance events, severely impact a company's operations. Industry regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA increase the importance of GRC for the endpoint. By using Absolute Computrace, these scenarios can be mitigated, and regulations met.
