LockPath released Audit Manager as part of the latest version of its Keylight platform, which enhances the end-to-end internal audit process. Controls allow customers to scope and holistically identify their audit portfolio, including facilities, technology assets, and devices.
The platform fosters a risk-based approach to planning and prioritizing audits by integrating organizational risks into the decision-making process. For example, multinational companies can score and compare regional versus domestic data center risks, as well as risks related to complying with standards and regulations to help drive audit priorities.
Keylight incorporates automation into the audit process to save time and ensure the accuracy of a report. Keylight can automatically generate tasks based on a specific regulation, which can then be assigned to the right audit resources. Once findings are collected, remediation tasks are automatically produced to address the cited controls.
The new application also supports mobility for auditors collecting evidence in the field. Auditors can export their task list to familiar spreadsheets to work remotely or access data offline, allowing them to capture findings and document evidence in a secure portal. The finished records can then easily be imported back into the Keylight platform.
Audit Manager offers senior management and C-level executives complete visibility around audit performance, findings and history. Executives can check the status of any active audit and view who is working on a certain component in the process through comprehensive and easy-to-read dashboards.
In addition to the new Audit Manager application, Keylight 3.3 features a number of other enhancements, including more data integration with LockPath’s Security Manager application, enhanced reporting capabilities, new assessment features and a more robust content library.
The new version builds upon Keylight’s reputation for being highly scalable, introducing more automation and visualization and giving end users more customizable control.
