Risk Management Software
Apparity Risk Management Software transforms spreadsheets and other EUC (End User Computing) applications from a problem into a solution.
Do you know how safe your spreadsheets are? Do you know where all your spreadsheets are? Who is using them and if they present risk? If you do know the answers to all these questions, then you are doing well. Why, because most companies do not know! In fact, most don’t even have a plan to find and track the spreadsheets that can get them into trouble.
So, how do you stay out of trouble? The answer is very simple. You use Apparity. Apparity is built to find every spreadsheet you use and then tell you what you should do. Should you put it in an inventory? Does it need to be controlled? Or can it be safely ignored?
Keeping your company safe from costly mistakes is never easy. But Apparity was built to help you do just that. Apparity is easy to use for both managers and users. From the moment you first build your spreadsheet, to every time it is used and changed, Apparity will let you know when you have a problem. With Apparity your spreadsheets are safe, secure and tracked. Providing managers with the peace of mind they need to make sure their company’s high-risk spreadsheets are always discovered, placed in an inventory, and tracked for changes that keep everyone happy and out of trouble.
Everyone knows that spreadsheets and other EUCs play a major role in business.
And yet, many don’t know what actually exists in their network or even how these files are used. The Apparity Software Platform’s Discovery module takes care of this problem. As a result, it provides you with a powerful scanning tool that can inventory complete file environments. Once you understand what’s out there, you can manage your files.
Because businesses need to take control of their most critical EUCs, we developed the Registration module. With this feature, users take care of these applications by retaining important file and use information. This certification feature makes sure that your most sensitive files are safe in order to ensure additional surveillance.
Once critical EUCs are identified and registered, users can begin to place them under Active Management for enhanced monitoring. As the most detailed module in the Apparity Software Platform, it provides a greater amount of controls and process automation. While making daily tasks simpler, Active Management makes sure that end users are always aligned with company policy.
With other risk management software, inventory management is a siloed function in which discovery data has to be manually imported into inventory. Unlike competitors, Apparity Inventory Management System (AIMS) is integrated into our entire product suite and provides the ability to manage all your spreadsheet and EUC inventory regardless of stage (discovered, registered, managed).
The Managed/ Registered Inventory consists of all files that are registered and those that are placed under management for more surveillance. As a first step, Registration allows an organization to document certain file properties for EUC inventory. If more care is necessary, files can be placed under management in order to use change management and versioning controls. The Managed/Registered Inventory is designed to help organizations effectively manage their critical files from one location.
The Unregistered Inventory includes all of the files that were picked up from Discovery scans. These listings will include information about each file. When files appear to be versions of the same application, Apparity uses an algorithm to group them. AIMS also gives the user tools to group and filter the EUC inventory in order to view the data in a personalized and meaningful way.
