Deliver Value With ROAR
Unified, Contextual Insight
InfoSec leaders are expected to share risk insights with Executives and the Board to support data-driven, strategic decisions. However, disconnected teams, application silos and discrete reporting make it hard to get a unified, real-time view of risk and compliance.
By unifying risk management, cybersecurity and compliance activities in a single solution, the ROAR Platform breaks down the silos that cause inefficiencies and delivers a trusted, single source of truth.
You’ll gain a unified, real-time view of risk and compliance—framed around your business priorities—to help you clearly communicate the impact of risk to stakeholders and make smart, risk-informed, strategic decisions.
Industry-aligned Frameworks and Standards
Keeping up with the complexity of new and changing requirements is challenging. We take the burden off you by providing a rich, expert-built library of over 25 regulatory, statutory and contractual frameworks and standards, maintained by our experts.
You can adopt best practices while maintaining the flexibility to manage your organizations’ unique controls, standardize risk and compliance across your company, and allow for seamless growth without introducing duplication and unintended risk.
Curated by experts and aligned with the Secure Control Framework (SCF) and NIST, the library provides cross-mappings of controls from the SCF, NIST CSF and CIS to a multitude of global frameworks.
Automated Evidence Collection
Since compliance teams are stretched thin trying to keep up with new and ever-changing compliance requirements, they need to work efficiently. Whether you’re managing spreadsheets, manually tracking requests and tasks or dealing with cumbersome reporting, manual processes can’t keep up.
With ROAR, you’ll realize valuable time savings for your team by automating the evidence collection process. You can reuse controls and evidence across frameworks, plus integrate with the systems on which your company relies. With integrations to cloud providers, code repositories, HR and CRM systems and more, you can eliminate manual work, reduce audit fatigue and always be on top of your compliance posture and audit-ready.
Real-time Risk Scoring
Risks to your business are growing, fast-moving and interconnected making it critical to stay ahead. Yet teams struggle to find the time for proper risk assessments. Risk is often identified too late to act on, putting your organization in a reactive and vulnerable position.
Due to the interconnected and quickly changing nature of risk, business objectives can be impacted in unforeseen ways. By connecting threats, vulnerabilities and risks and continuously testing control effectiveness, you get real-time risk scores that proactively surface hidden risk. When there is change in control performance or maturity, you get early visibility so you can assess your exposure and act fast to mitigate it.
External Provider Risk Assessments
As dependence on third-parties and their services grow, these valuable relationships also introduce significant risk. With outsourcing, you give up control over the work, how it is done and how it is secured. But unfortunately you can’t outsource the risk.
Being able to assess the risk of your providers is critical but not enough. You also need to understand the impact of this risk to your business. What data does this provider have access to? What processes does it impact? How reliant is your business on this provider?
By scoring provider services, seeing the overall risk of the provider and understanding the impact across your organization, you can take action to reduce risk to an acceptable level.
Real-time Reporting on the Impact of Risk
With growing scrutiny from executive leadership and the Board, InfoSec leaders need to clearly communicate the impact of risk in the context of the priorities that matter most to the business. Through our Risk Operations Center with Board-level reporting, InfoSec leaders can quantify the risk exposure and justify investments enabling risk-informed decision making to better protect the company, its business assets and key stakeholders.
From audit reports to summaries of top risks, operational reports help your team prioritize their work, improve outcomes and demonstrate their effectiveness over time, while tactical reports keep your teams organized by helping them manage their tasks and stay up-to-date as work progresses.

Move From Point-in-Time to Real-Time Compliance
Compliance audits are tedious, manual, and time consuming. They are also point-in-time assessments of controls already implemented. Audits don’t mean that the controls in place are sufficient and they don’t focus on how well protected your organization is today.
Mapping compliance controls to cyber risks and automating the evidence collection process, provides real-time visibility into where risk is highest so you can prioritize work, free up your team and eliminate hours spent preparing for audits.
- Eliminate hours of manual work by automating evidence collection
- Ensure you stay compliant by monitoring for unexpected changes
- Automatically rescore related risks due to changes in effectiveness or maturity
Surface Hidden Risk to Stay Ahead of Threats
Managing risk has become a priority at every organizational level. Yet informal approaches, manual processes and staffing shortages often delay or impede properly assessing risk.
ROAR helps you see risk in terms your business stakeholders care about. With industry-aligned risk and threat registers pre-scored by experts and standard scoring methods built-in, you get an immediate view of risk based on control effectiveness.
- Get real-time risk scores that are automatically updated to reflect changes in risk
- Convey the financial impact of risk, the amount mitigated and remaining risk exposure
- Take action to proactively reduce risk to acceptable levels by prioritizing critical risks
