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.

It is well suited if you only need a tool that is going to be used for threat detection and penetration testing for your internal systems. It would be less appropriate if you are looking for a strong threat management system for end-user workstations. I would suggest looking elsewhere for that.

Pros

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.

  • Reporting - Qualys PC does a fantastic job in this arena. Reports are easy to customize and decipher.
  • Very nice and easy to read dashboard.

Cons

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.

  • You must learn the terminology which can cause problems but is a minor thing.

Again, the usability of Qualys has been a pinpoint for this entire review. It was easily the worst thing about the product and because of this, I would not recommend Qualys to anybody in my field. This should be something that Qualys strives to improve if they wish to stay in business.

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

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.

The VMware Carbon Black suite of products is highly superior than Qualys. This is what our organization has switched to and we couldn't be happier. It feels much more modern and easier to use/naviagte than Qualys. They also offer great threat detection on the end-user's workstations. It is a nice complete package.

Return on Investment

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.

Qualys PC

  • No product is a magic bullet. Qualys PC solves a lot of problems with as few hiccups as it seems is possible.
  • Convincing a client to invest in the system is a bit of an uphill battle. I find it nice once up and running, The IT people love it.
