Overview of the Ballast Software

Risk Assessments – Regulators and auditors demand them. Executive and board stakeholders need them. However, done in the typical way, risk assessments:

  • Take too long
  • Cost too much
  • Deliver too little

BALLAST addresses these pain points with an easy-to-use interface that streamlines the assessment process, saving you time and money.

Our flexible design reduces assessment fatigue, allowing you to assess once using your preferred framework (HIPAA, ISO, NIST, PCI, etc.) and understand gaps against multiple, cross-walked frameworks.

BALLAST’s intuitive dashboard reporting gives you real-time visibility into threats facing your organization and allows you to seamlessly track and manage remediations.

Let’s us show you how BALLAST can help make the assessment process less painful and start providing real value to your organization.
