HighBond by Galvanize

HighBond by Galvanize is a perfect tool for simple to use and easy to implement audit plan management. It is extremely easy to set up, install, and executive your audit plan. The audit issue management module as well as the report function are both very robust and add a lot of value. Currently, there is not a way to manage all audit entities in an efficient manner.

KCM GRC Platform

KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform is well suited for a company that knows what they're doing compliance wise and needs to save time doing it. It won't be something you can spend a few hours on and then put on autopilot. It was made to create a rhythm within your own team, and you'll need to have the buy-in. It's useful for IT and Legal teams that already have a vendor risk management process, but want to have a better handle on it. Giving an outside auditor read-only access to a scope is also a huge time saver.

Pros

HighBond by Galvanize

  • We can process thousands (even millions, I think) units of data without crashing.
  • Scripting language in HighBond is easier compared to other programming languages.
  • It can process large data analytics in seconds or minutes.
  • It can be used to execute other programs by using scripts.

KCM GRC Platform

  • Mapping controls across different compliance frameworks. It saves you a ton of time and energy!
  • Performing risk assessments at the granularity that you prefer, splitting assessments across departments and teams if you wish.

Cons

HighBond by Galvanize

  • The current setup does not have a risk management option.
  • There is not an easy way to catalog all audits and then cycle through them.
  • The set up of tabs within a project can be a bit cumbersome and excessive.

KCM GRC Platform

  • Vendor management has a few kinks to work out. We want to be able to do internal questionnaires for vendors as a compliance checklist before we sign off on a contract. Nothing in the works yet, but there are a few workarounds.
  • The navigation between different tasks in scope is clunky, and it's easy to lose your place, and it forces you back to the main page of the scope to retrace your steps.

HighBond by Galvanize support has some of the best and fastest support that I have experienced. Though we only contact them through emails, they were quick to provide insightful information about our problems. Whenever we email them about an issue, they would be able to reply in less than an hour, ready and prepared with useful solutions to address the issue.

Support from KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform is always great. It's always in-house localized support, with excellent response times, and dedicated Customer Success Managers to answer the bulk of your questions or take your suggestions and make them a feature request. They will also reach out at least quarterly and do health checks to make sure you're using the platform to the best of your ability.

Alternatives Considered

HighBond by Galvanize

HighBond by Galvanize was by far the easiest program to set up, implement, and have running in a very short amount of time. It was also very easy for our users to have a moderate understanding of all the features in a short amount of time. The biggest downfall in compared to other products though has been the lack of automatic report generating capabilities for report writing.

KCM GRC Platform

Quantivate and Fusion were the other two options we checked out. The quantity was high, and a good bit more expensive, but it was the best performing with its platform. They also had more modules that each cost extra to add to your subscription. KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform was all-in-one and a little less mature, but the better buy. Fusion was hard to follow in the demo, and I was not overly impressed. I may have made my decision early enough in the demo to not pay much more attention to it.

Return on Investment

HighBond by Galvanize

  • Our engagements are done in a more efficient way. From days/weeks to just minutes.
  • High frequency of engagements.
  • High productivity for our department.

KCM GRC Platform

  • Just having the capacity to do things the right way, and formally, has driven some of our compliance efforts.
  • Due to licensing limitations, we likely overspent on seats to the platform that we didn't need but also didn't want to miss out on.
