KYS® Self-Assessment: online Internal Auditing Tool

Vaultinum has developed an online auditing tool that enables companies to conduct their own due diligence in several areas including, cyber security, intellectual property, and software management. In particular, the KYS solution assesses risk, compliance and good practices of a company’s technology, operations and processes, in the areas of:

  • Security and Vulnerability
  • Maintainability
  • Ownership of Intellectual Property
  • Inventory of open-source licenses used

The audit surveys and the resulting recommendations were created in collaboration with leading experts in the fields analyzed.  At the completion of the audit, an evaluation report is automatically generated that provides, among others, (i) quantitative ratios; (ii) qualitative information on the assessed company’s practices; (iii) benchmarking of the assessed company’s performance and (iv) actionable recommendations.

The advantages of the KYS® Self-Assessment are twofold: in the short term, the results of the audit presents a company with critical information on their technology and processes; in the long term, the implementation of recommendations can increase the value of the software asset by limiting risk and improving operations and processes.
