Apptega is an excellent, to-the-point, cost-effective GRC platform for MSPs and MSSPs. Quickly spin up new clients, complete assessments against a myriad of frameworks, add risk, crosswalk between platforms, get excellent support, and affordable licensing.
With Apptega, we identified the opportunity to optimize our security standards and pinpoint where we needed to place our priorities based on the SANS top 20 controls. It essentially provided us with a road map for security success.
Apptega has allowed us to build out our state regulatory compliance programs. We now understand the schedule and key dates our team must hit which holds us accountable for quarterly objectives and board meetings.
We evaluated a variety of platforms and found many to be too complex and hard to use. In Apptega, we found an ideal fit.
The pre-Apptega approach based on spreadsheets embodied significant overhead and couldn’t reliably identify and address all the gaps. Now we manage cybersecurity effectiveness and compliance as a program, where it’s continuous, and we’re able to make constant improvements and easily get the information and visibility we need. At all times, we know exactly where we stand and where we need to go.
With Apptega, we’re able to take a cost-effective DIY approach to cybersecurity readiness and compliance. The built-in guidance for each of the sub-controls helps us quickly compare what we are actually doing with what we need to be doing. Gaps are readily identified, and remediation tasks are set up in the platform to give us a 360-degree view of our status and plans.
Until Apptega, I couldn’t find a cost-effective GRC tool that measured and assessed risk and controls well. Not only does Apptega have a better price point than anyone else, it’s a powerful platform that helps me with my reporting, gives my clients instant feedback, and holds them accountable.
Having a presentable, useful platform that both my employees and clients can use to achieve consistent, tangible results increased our efficiency and availability while also strengthening our client relationships.
Being able to cross-map between different frameworks is huge. I don’t want to have to gather the same data 16 different times.
[Apptega has] been a great value to us. I can’t emphasize that enough. Every time we get a customer, I’m figuring out, ‘How do we get Apptega in that account one way or another?'
Apptega's primary value is that it lets us organize our advisory process around the needs of our customers, and give us a better way to convey the impact of the process.
