The Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) market is undergoing unprecedented change, with increasingly stringent requirements demanding innovative solutions. Recognizing the need for disruption through automation to enhance efficiency and bolster trust, Hyperproof announced a strategic alliance with Accenture, the leading global IT services company.

As companies struggle to keep pace with escalating GRC demands like the number of controls to manage, testing those controls, manually collecting evidence, and meeting multiple compliance requirements, many find themselves mired in outdated spreadsheets and legacy systems. The result is overwhelmed teams grappling with mounting workloads and struggling to understand and operationalize their workflows effectively. Hyperproof and Accenture’s partnership addresses these pain points head-on. Combining Hyperproof’s cutting-edge GRC operations with Accenture’s industry-leading services, the alliance empowers enterprises to conquer their most challenging GRC obstacles by harmonizing control management and enabling continuous control testing.

“The objective of our alliance with Accenture is clear: to enable enterprises to solve their most pressing GRC challenges,” said Craig Unger, CEO and Founder of Hyperproof. “By leveraging Accenture’s unparalleled expertise alongside Hyperproof’s best-in-class GRC platform, we’re poised to revolutionize how companies manage controls and, ultimately, mitigate risk.”

Hyperproof addresses a key need for Accenture with its powerful end-to-end control testing automation, and we believe it will drive a lot of value in this area for clients, even those that use big platforms like ServiceNow.”
