SureCloud and FirmGuard join forces to deliver Tech-Enabled Cyber and GRC Services in Australia and APAC

The exclusive partnership will see FirmGuard deliver Tech-Enabled Services via SureCloud’s GRC award-winning Platform.

20 August 2020 - Provider of Gartner recognised Integrated Risk Management (IRM) solutions and cybersecurity services, SureCloud, teams up with Australian information security, governance, risk and compliance specialist FirmGuard to deliver a suite of pioneering tech-based services.

The strategic partnership combines SureCloud’s award-winning technology and methodologies with FirmGuard’s expertise in compliance readiness and advisory solutions across global and regional security standards and regulatory frameworks such as GDPR, APRA CPS234/CPG235 and ISO 27001.

Introducing FirmGuard, powered by SureCloud.

Using the SureCloud platform and the Secure Controls Framework™ (SCF), FirmGuard will deliver faster and more comprehensive readiness and mobilise engagements across multiple standards and control domains. The SureCloud platform offers enhanced end-user experiences, real-time reporting, digestible dashboards and other automation. These capabilities enable organisations to act on readiness findings and remediate them prior to compliance or certification and manage ongoing compliance obligations post-audit.

The partnership will also enable FirmGuard to provide a range of innovative cybersecurity services including an “as-a-service” proposition that gives its users access to SureCloud’s Cybersecurity-as-a-Service and PTaaS (Pen Testing as a Service) offering. This unique, on-demand and subscription-based service will revolutionise the way clients consume cyber and risk services with a focus on strategic outcomes with fixed cost and on-demand support.

Ben Jepson, VP Cyber Services, SureCloud said: “We are delighted to be partnering with FirmGuard to bring our unique-tech enabled services underpinned by our GRC platform into the ANZ & APAC markets. These markets presents an exciting opportunity for us and the combination of SureCloud technology and FirmGuard’s experience and knowledge in the local cyber, risk and compliance market creates an ideal partnership. Our proposition which has supported a variety of organisations across EMEA and North America since 2006, will bring a unique user experience to clients making it easier to manage multiple governance and compliance frameworks, and providing a flexible subscription model to consume our accredited services.”

Dan Ussher, Founder & CEO at FirmGuard said: “Organisations need to adapt to new regulatory frameworks while dealing simultaneously with a vast range of other national and international regulatory reforms. Compliance and InfoSec are complicated and often misunderstood. The partnership with SureCloud delivers enhanced capability to optimise existing services to deliver and manage multiple governance and compliance frameworks, fast. Our on-demand advisory services are complimented with SureCloud’s proven processes and client base. We are excited to be powered by SureCloud and we see a bright future for two organisations with shared capability, technology and values to come together.”
