Risk3sixty to Disrupt the GRC Market with Free Version of Phalanx GRC

Phalanx Release

Risk3sixty is offering companies a free GRC solution that has been built by experts
with decades of experience in the industry.

ATLANTA — June 27, 2022 – Risk3sixty has helped organizations assess, build, manage, and certify their security programs against multiple compliance frameworks including SOC 2 and ISO 27001 since 2016.

Today, risk3sixty is releasing Phalanx GRC Essentials, a free version of their expert-built platform that has already helped more than a hundred companies build and maintain their compliance and security programs.

Phalanx GRC helps organizations of all sizes build world-class security and compliance programs. The platform, already available at multiple pricing tiers for companies to choose from for their unique needs, is now available in a free version for companies looking to start their compliance and security programs in an expert-guided way.

We decided to create a free version of the Phalanx GRC platform because we want to give back to the community — to share our expertise with organizations who are building their programs for the first time or looking for a platform to help them mature their existing programs quickly,” said risk3sixty Chief Technology Officer Kevin Ketts. “Some platforms promise a silver bullet for achieving compliance, but risk3sixty recognizes there is no silver bullet, and that expertise and craftsmanship are crucial to building a well-run program. We seek to empower teams with simplified self-assessments, easy-to-understand recommendations, and a structured approach to managing security and compliance activities.”

Features of the freemium version of Phalanx include:

Risk3sixty’s free tier enters a crowded market at a price point unmatched by other companies. Phalanx GRC Essentials is positioned to provide organizations with the essential capabilities necessary to quickly assess and mature their security and compliance programs with no extra cost for the software.
