Rethinking the Role of Compliance

The 3 Stages of Compliance Automation Maturity

Achieving a strong security and compliance posture is not a Big Bang event. It is a journey in which organizations have to start with the basics and mature their people, processes, and technologies to develop the necessary capabilities. Part of this involves investing in the right tools that can grow and evolve with the organization. Qmulos’ Q-Compliance is a best-in-class solution that flexes to organizations of any size, in any industry, at any level of maturity. As such, it all was you to streamline, automate, and improve your cybersecurity and compliance posture. Additionally, Q-Compliance supports any compliance framework/regulation, and has flexible pricing options. Organizations can now invest in themselves as our solution grows and adapts for them in an ever-changing cybersecurity landscape. To sum up, Q-Compliance provides a flexible approach, allowing organizations to quickly adopt industry best practices at any level of the cybersecurity and compliance maturity curve.


Organizations in the “crawl” stage aren’t using their security tools and capabilities to automate and continuously monitor their security controls. They may still be collecting and performing assessments manually and capturing the results in spreadsheets and other documents. Q-Compliance can benefit organizations in this stage with its capabilities that are similar to traditional Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) tools such as the ability to upload or link to evidence, capture compliance history, manually perform audits and assessments, and generate compliance artifacts like System Security Plans. By adopting Q-Compliance in the crawl stage, organizations can replace their manual processes and disparate documents with a single tool. Furthermore, they can begin to build the foundation for a robust cybersecurity and compliance program built on industry best practices. Q-Compliance supports the RMF, NIST 800-53 security controls, and industry standards like HIPAA, FedRAMP, PCI DSS, and even custom controls.


Organizations in the “walk” stage may be performing basic cyber hygiene functions such as identifying and managing their assets, scanning those assets for vulnerabilities, and implementing secure configurations on those assets. At this stage they may be producing technical evidence that can be ingested in Q-Compliance to begin continuously monitoring the effectiveness of these foundational security controls. Q-Compliance provides the “Basic Cyber Hygiene” content pack. It enables organizations in this stage to quickly get started with monitoring controls and use prebuilt alerts to get notified of events that may indicate security and compliance findings. From there, organizations can easily enable the monitoring of additional controls and begin to enable automated audits and assessments as they implement additional security functions.


Organizations in the “run” stage have a robust suite of tools to implement their security controls. Subsequently, they produce a rich stream of technical data from these tools such as log data, configuration settings, scan results, and other events that can be leveraged to continuously monitor their security and compliance posture. Q-Compliance provides an extensive and powerful set of capabilities to enable organizations in this stage to assure compliance with the comprehensive set of controls required by their relevant regulations (e.g., full-blown NIST baselines), continuously monitor the effectiveness of these controls; utilize automated alerting, assessments, and audits; and achieve true Ongoing Assessment & Authorization.
