AlertEnterprise, a Freemont, California-based provider of security, risk, and compliance management software, today launched AlertEnterprise Compliance Express, a NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) compliance solution designed for smaller organizations such as Cooperative and Municipal Utilities.
AlertEnterprise Compliance Express comes pre-configured with content packs for NERC Operational Reliability and CIP standards and provides utilities with full compliance lifecycle support from custom controls to gauge compliance, test plans, investigations and remediation and more.
AlertEnterprise centralizes all audit activities through the use of document management and tracking, workflow management, automated compliance reminders for critical timelines and reporting deliverables, and role-based access control. A regulatory update feature also allows organizations to leverage existing efforts by automatically mapping content to evolving standards.
“With Compliance Express, municipals and cooperatives can free staff resources from the regulatory tangle with an easy to deploy, easy-to-use solution that will streamline lifecycle and management processes, significantly improve audit resiliency and overcome looming fines,” said AlertEnterprise CEO, Jasvir Gill. “We understand the challenges municipals face with trying to keep up-to-date on a constantly evolving regulatory landscape and the new technology will go a long ways towards easing the compliance burden for small utilities.”
The AlertEnterprise Compliance Express framework offers utilities with full compliance lifecycle support, organized evidence management, instant accountability and progress tracking of all NERC reliability standards, inclusive of NERC CIP.
AlertEnterprise’s “Security Convergence” solutions are designed to help companies deal with theft, fraud and acts of terrorism against critical infrastructure assets. Its software can help customers analyze and respond to risks from blended threats across IT Systems, Physical Access Control Systems and Industrial Control Systems.
In September 2011, the company raised $19 Million in financing round led by prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB).
