Organizations often begin with one framework and add additional frameworks as their cybersecurity program mature. Harmony enables these organizations to manage multiple frameworks as one mapped program.
Managing several frameworks simultaneously can be duplicative and inefficient. Harmony, Apptega's intelligent framework crosswalking capability, provides an easy and efficient way for organizations to comprehensively manage security and compliance by consolidating thousands of subcontrols from Apptega's entire library of frameworks into a unified set of common controls and subcontrols - creating efficiencies in time, effort, and resources.
When frameworks are mapped together, the subcontrols are ‘coupled’ and a change to one is automatically replicated to all paired subcontrols in both the mapped program and any standalone frameworks. This includes scoring, tasks, assignments, notes, dates, and vendors.
When data exists in the same subcontrols in more than one framework being mapped, the system will determine a ‘dominant subcontrol’ (the subcontrol with the higher score). During the mapping process, Apptega will select all data associated with the dominant subcontrol and replicate it across the mapped program.
When the need arises to remove a framework from a mapped program, Apptega will automatically uncouple the subcontrols. When a framework is removed, updates in the framework will no longer replicate to the other frameworks that were a part of the mapped program.
When a mapped program is uncoupled, the data will persist in each individual framework that was included in the initial mapping. For example, if you map ISO 27001 and CCPA together and then decide to uncouple the program, all data will continue to exist in each standalone framework.
"I see products in the market that promise ‘30-day audits’ but in reality that’s not feasible or very sustainable. Great security and compliance is not a one-time event to check a box. Apptega is a long-term platform and partner that supports my entire business and our strategic goals."
"Cybersecurity is an ongoing program, not a one-time project. With dozens of Storage Post retail locations requiring continuous PCI compliance, Apptega organizes our entire program in one place, giving us incredible efficiencies. It's the salesforce.com for cybersecurity."
“I find Apptega amazingly easy to use. What I like best is the pre-built framework content covering topics like NIST CSF, CIS, GDPR and CCPA. The reports are extremely valuable for reporting to executive and board stakeholders.”
"I would absolutely recommend Apptega for anyone looking to elevate their compliance program from a static source to something that can be used to actively track and manage your compliance."
