NEW YORK, May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lynx Technology Partners (Lynx), today announced that Network Products Guide, the industry's leading technology research and advisory guide, has named Lynx a finalist for the 10th Annual 2015 IT World Awards for the best Governance, Risk and Compliance product. These industry and peer awards from Network Products Guide are the world's premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, June 29, 2015 during the 10th annual red carpet awards banquet and presentation.
Lynx Risk Manager (LRM) is a compliance and risk management solution that provides a framework for streamlining compliance management and assessing business risk. It provides visibility into compliance and risk through four capabilities: risk profiling, controls framework, controls assessment, and risk/compliance reporting. LRM enables organizations to effectively measure their security and compliance posture and align IT risk with specific business assets.
Like other GRC tools, it harmonizes common controls from more than 450 regulatory standards into a single set of controls, thus easing the burden and duplication inherent in manual compliance management practices. However, its big differentiator is a simplicity that belies its powerful, customizable capabilities. Lynx Risk Manager's interface has been recognized for providing a great user experience, with powerful "out-of-the-box" controls that are ready to support financial, healthcare, energy, transportation, retail, manufacturing, and other regulated sectors.
An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual IT World Awards recognition program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.
"This esteemed industry and peer award recognition of Lynx as a top GRC provider by Network Products Guide is a great honor," said Aric K. Perminter, Chairman & CEO of Lynx Technology Partners. "This further validates our position as a company poised to successfully overcome the many challenges within the GRC landscape so our customers can successfully navigate security inherent complexities and achieve a strong security posture for their company."
"We're pleased to see Lynx Technology Partners make the finalist list for this award and applaud their successes in helping global 1000 companies streamline compliance, provide visibility into business risk, and successfully align IT and Business," said Rake Narang, Editor-in-Chief, Network Products Guide.
