Santa Clara, CA, Thursday - June 23, 2011 -- eGestalt Technologies (
http://www.eGestalt.com ), a leading provider of cloud-based, SaaS-
delivered, security and information technology governance, risk
management and compliance (IT-GRC) solutions for small to mid-size

SecureGRC SB ( http://www.egestalt.com ) provides an ideal, easy-to-use,
cost-effective solution for SMBs such as medical clinics and physician
practices all the way to larger medical organizations such as physician
groups, physician organizations and hospitals. The solution walks the end
user through easy Q&A steps to conduct a self-assessment of the
organization’s current security and compliance posture, closing all
compliance gaps via document uploads, and thus reducing exposure to
potential fines while maintaining continuous compliance.
Starting with an evaluation to assess needs, SOS Systems used the native
templates available in the SecureGRC SB solution to set up policies and
automate procedures, helping to manage 10-years’ worth of patient
"We started with nothing, and SOS thankfully provided all the
documentation we needed," said Internal Medicine of Memphis (IMM). "We
scanned into the system hundreds of patient files. Using SecureGRC SB, we
performed an assessment that instructed us how to proceed with aligning
ourselves with HIPAA compliancy. We could browse and click and see where
things had to be. SOS trained us on using SecureGRC SB and explained how
and where we needed to be compliant."
"The system gave us confidence that policies and procedures were being
followed, and that patient records were being managed successfully," said
Says David Altizer, vice president of SOS Systems of Bartlett, Tenn.,
"SecureGRC SB was built with the everyday office worker in mind, making
it easy and simple to use. The user has to only follow a set of guided
questions to manage the whole self-assessment process."
Says eGestalt president Anupam Sahai, "SecureGRC SB demystifies security
and compliance through automation of the self-assessments you need to
conduct in order to accomplish this.Comprehensive HIPAA and HITECH
support is simplified and built-in, easily extended, and automatically
kept up to date. The self-assessment process includes online help and
access to best practices which enables users to answer questions
effectively. SMBs can achieve risk mitigation by remediating any security
and compliance gaps found by enforcingpolicies and procedures through
customization of templates available from SecureGRC SB."
Once users have made their first pass,the compliance gaps are clearly
communicated, SecureGRC’s risk calculator prioritizes the areas that need
immediate attention first.
SecureGRC SB is delivered through managed compliance providers (MCP) who
leverage the built-in ‘Best Practices’ library in the solution on how
best to customize and resolve each and every open issue with a common
sense approach depending on the particular business deployment.
