  • Coalfire

    You get the call from the boss you have been dreading for weeks. “Jimmy, it’s time to add FISMA to our control set, and we need to be compliant in three weeks. GO!”

    National Practice Leader Coalfire
  • Aspect

    “Performing control and standards research could take several days in my old job, and there was always the concern that I might have missed some critical frameworks or entire regulations. With the UCF, I can do that same research and summarization in hours and have the confidence that any major framework, standard, or regulation was comprehensively reviewed. The UCF allows me to better focus my time on other important information security activities.”

  • Seccuris

    “We’ve been using the UCF for several years and it has continued to be the single most powerful compliance and regulation resource we have. UCF allows you to focus your efforts, increasing speed of compliance activities and decreasing risk of incomplete or inconsistent strategies, policies and controls. Regardless of the size of your organization you will see an immediate value in incorporating the UCF into your program and processes.”

  • USAN

    “The UCF has saved me countless hours of research on the Internet. Having direct access to the authority documents for standards, regulations and guidelines in one convenient location has helped me turn around compliance initiatives such as HIPAA compliance in a fraction of the time compared to what it used to take me prior to using the UCF.”

    Manager Information Security & Compliance USAN
  • Patch Advisor

    “We have used the UCF compliance package tool for many assessments! The availability to pull the governance requirements is outstanding especially for each State. We also use it for quick references with building specific test plans.The UCF compliance package is a tool that we would like to keep in our tool bag!”

    Steve Fisher
    IA SME Patch Advisor
  • Concise Consulting

    “We both use the UCF and recommend it to our clients. I can’t think of an organization that we work with whose core business is keeping track of the myriad of regulations that affect IT, not just in the US but overseas, but many spend a lot of effort doing just that. Why bother, when the UCF does all of the hard work, and allows you to focus on actually implementing controls to reduce risk to your organization, rather than working out how to interpret legislation? If that isn’t enough praise, for the amount of work that has gone into the UCF, it is incredibly competitively priced. We got almost instant return on our investment in UCF licenses and you will too.”

    Aaron Weller
    CEO & Co-founder
  • A large financial organization

    “I have used the UCF for 6+ years now, first as a Consultant and later as a full time InfoSec manager responsible for Governance, Compliance, and controls. The UCF has helped me in Business Impact Analysis and Risk Analysis functions for my work. It has saved me countless hours and reduced the cost associated with managing the complexity of IT risk and compliance by standardizing on a common set of controls that map to all the regulations and policy mandates they need to comply with.”
