Conduct your audit processes easily and rapidly
Automate data collection and processing
Implement efficiently audit recommendations with useful reports
Today, auditing teams, both internal and external, face many difficulties with completing their tasks for inspecting regulatory compliance and IT security compliance. There are many obstacles that restrict the capabilities of an audit: doing work “by hand”, lack of visibility of the systems and risks, difficult access to information and data, the volume of data to be analyzed, etc.
This task must be simplified for auditors to help them conduct their tasks easily : compliance verification with internal policies, monitoring, and analysis of user access rights, or even the detection of diversions that could increase the risks of noncompliance, fraud, or data breach. Brainwave Identity GRC automates data collection and processing while also providing a turnkey solution for auditors to accelerate and simplify their audits. Much larger volumes of data can be analyzed, faster, with easy-to-use results through customizable reports.
Auditors can then become more independent and effective, effortlessly.

The solution’s analysis engines can isolate abnormal situations to highlight them rapidly and visibly, especially regarding potential noncompliance risks.
Optimize internal audit for external audit
Auditing teams can easily collaborate with IT teams for IT audits, as everyone will have access to the same web platform and the same collected and processed data.
The risks of regulatory noncompliance and IT security noncompliance (fraud, data loss, etc.) can be easily reduced because auditors and IT teams can quickly communicate and alert one another using an integrated messaging system.
Implement audit recommandations with usable customized reports
Brainwave Identity GRC meets the needs of auditors by enabling them to issue concrete recommendations that can be implemented to meet regulatory compliance requirements and reduce noncompliance risks.
The solution’s reporting engine allows you to adapt the formats of standard reports or create new ones in order to automatically issue and update actionable reports that have been tailored to the organization’s auditing needs.

The monitoring of audit results all the way to remediation tasks ensures progress overtime. Any problems detected are solved, situations improved, and these results are demonstrable.
In addition, the solution maintains an archive of the previously conducted audits and reports published through regular data loadings. Brainwave Identity GRC can compare loads and highlight trends and changes that have occurred.
Audit teams can take advantage of audits that have already been completed, without having to repeat preparatory tasks and report publishing. The audit reporting process can also be automated to save a lot of time and resources.
