Compliance evidence report generation in PDF formatโ€‹

Prove compliance to your auditors with PDF evidence reports. Now you can export reports from any control page or export an archive containing controls for your whole compliance framework.

Generate a report

These reports are specifically formatted for auditors and ready for attachment to GRC systems or other auditor evidence upload solutions.

View a report

We've got you covered with secure storage as well, so you can share reports between team members without insecure email attachments or unauthenticated URLs.

Exceptions for assets and policiesโ€‹

The power and visibility of compliance exceptions is now available outside of compliance: You can now set exceptions for checks on assets and security policies. Asset and policy exceptions enable cross-team visibility and allow more granularity in how you prioritize your work.

Improve visibility with detailed explanations of why exceptions were created, approvals, and detailed logging. You never have to ask again who made a change and why.

Improved visibility

Prioritize your work with time-based snoozing: Turn off a check temporarily while you work on more important issues, but don't let it fall through the cracks.

Improved Granularity

MQL containsNone with an array of regular expressionsโ€‹

field.containsNone( [ /a/, /.*b/ ] )
