Hyperproof Inc. and Grant Thornton have entered into an agreement to provide clients with Hyperproof’s pioneering compliance-operations software across a wide range of clients and industries. Hyperproof is a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) compliance operations for mid-sized to very large enterprises. Grant Thornton LLP is one of America’s largest audit, tax and advisory firms. The companies say the move will help Grant Thornton’s business clients better manage risk and enhance the efficiency of compliance programs and related report preparation.
Hyperproof’s technology will empower client organizations to standardize key control activities, automate their evidence collection processes and gain deeper insights into their compliance programs. Hyperproof’s software will also allow Grant Thornton’s teams to work more effectively with their clients before, during and after each compliance report.
The agreement spans a wide range of compliance programs, from System and Organization Controls (SOC) to ISO 27001 and many others. As organizations and professionals look to expand their compliance function, the agreement will enable them to manage new risks and meet emerging requirements without the need to hire additional staff.
“Grant Thornton is committed to delivering the most innovative, efficient and quality-driven assurance services in the industry,” said Nicole Julius, the national leader of Grant Thornton’s Strategic Assurance and SOC Services solutions. “Our agreement with Hyperproof will help security assurance and compliance professionals deploy comprehensive compliance solutions using the latest technologies.”
Hyperproof founder and CEO Craig Unger highlights his company’s compatibility with Grant Thornton: “Grant Thornton delivers high-quality and trusted services to customers across the U.S., and the firm is known for its commitment to making business more personal and building trust into every result. Hyperproof operates under the same ethos — our success comes from our laser focus on delivering positive customer outcomes.”
The two companies will also jointly develop a seamless data exchange capability between Hyperproof and Grant Thornton’s SOC.x tool, which is a platform the firm created to more efficiently produce reports covering SOC compliance. This integration will empower clients to continuously collaborate with Grant Thornton’s professionals throughout the compliance-reporting process.
