The software Modulo Risk Manager(TM) is also highlighted in MarketScope for ITGRCM 2009 for its good flexibility in control mapping and policy as well as good auditor workflow support. The document stresses that it is an "out-of-the-box" (OOTB) IT GRC solution. "Modulo Risk Manager is an OOTB product that supports the self-assessment, audit support and automated GCC use cases," Gartner says.
