Continuous monitoring solution proactively triggers compliance activities and streamlines auditing processes
Dulles, Va. – October 21, 2014 – Carpathia, a trusted cloud operator and leading provider of hybrid cloud services and managed hosting for government agencies and enterprises, today announced its Continuous Assurance Platform™(CAP™), a tool that enables organizations to perform ongoing compliance assessment and adherence against any defined standard. CAP automates the continuous collection and analysis of necessary artifacts and controls, proactively delivering the insight enterprises and government agencies need to address critical compliance activities before a failed audit, fines and penalties.
“In the age of continuous monitoring, enterprises can’t afford to wait until an audit takes place to know if they are compliant with key standards, particularly in industries like government and healthcare that manage highly sensitive information,” said Jon Greaves, Chief Scientist & Chief Information Security Officer at Carpathia. “CAP offers continuous compliance visibility – an industry first – while simplifying the information gathering process for both internal teams and auditors, saving time and money for everyone involved.”
CAP is based on a proprietary rules engine that generates a score, measuring adherence to any defined standard (existing, emerging, or customized) at any point in time. This insight empowers business leaders, compliance officers, security executives and risk assessment leaders to evaluate their organization’s past, current and future compliance posture against both static and evolving requirements. Carpathia publishes and maintains critical government and healthcare industry standards within the platform, including Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Compliance information is collected and stored within the Evidence Locker, a CAP tool that guarantees artifacts are digitally signed and cannot be modified or deleted, ensuring an indelible audit trail. For auditors, CAP reduces the length of most auditing processes from days to hours, replacing lengthy spreadsheet or paper-based checklists with customizable reports and powerful real-time data queries.
CAP is specifically designed to efficiently meet the compliance needs of government and healthcare organizations, and the initial release is pre-configured to address FedRAMP and HIPAA requirements. Carpathia will add support for additional compliance standards in the coming months.
