When it comes to modern businesses, there are a variety of challenges that begin with the ever-evolving threat landscape to the deluge of regulatory changes and impositions. Additionally, with the growth of cloud adoption and more and more products and services delivered via cloud, the ability for organizations to bring new revenue streams to market depend on ability to quickly get those offerings certified for consumer consumption, this has a direct revenue implication. In addition, with the ever-growing M&A activity in the market, organizations are struggling with the need to run a centralized Risk & Compliance program, while still providing autonomy of data and access to portfolio companies. Every one of these challenges can be met with 6clicks, one of the leading GRC software platforms for risk management and ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, NIST CSF compliance. As a comprehensive end-to-end GRC solution, the 6clicks holistic approach doesn’t stop with workflows, notifications or integrations. “We’ve extended an elegant user experience into a single pane of glass for large complex organizations, which allows for the ability to push content from the Hub and pull risk and compliance data from each Spoke, providing the primary administrator and executives the ability to view their organization top down and across divisions, very easily and elegantly,” begins Anthony Stevens, Founder & CEO, 6Clicks.

Moreover, as Stevens and the company’s CPO, Louis Strauss, came from the Advisory world, “6clicks was created by Advisors for Advisors”. It’s that heritage that gave them the insight into a day-in-the-life of a solution provider and what pains they have with service delivery. 6clicks helps identify risks, group them into risk registers and run risk assessments. It highlights causes and potential impacts, outlines risk treatment plans and helps manage the full treatment lifecycle.“Our platform is a direct reflection of that heritage and many of the features and functionality was designed with solution providers in mind. As a result, we’re proud to say we’ve signed some of the world’s largest Advisory firms and MSP’s, who’ve standardized on 6clicks,” adds Stevens. Since opening its doors, 6clicks' vision is to restore trust in businesses by enabling businesses and advisors to easily demonstrate compliance, improve cyber security and reimagine risk for their customers, prospects, and partners. An instance that portrays the company’s value proposition is when the team assisted a multinational M&A Company that owns and operates in 145 countries spanning 30 different vertical markets. The client had an incumbent legacy GRC which had a decent interface but lacked the ability to manage in a multi-tenant capacity. After 3 years of promises by the incumbent vendor, a search for an alternative ensued. 6clicks Hub & Spoke was deployed for distributed management of 165 Business Units and scalability for roughly 20 acquisitions per year. Each wholly owned subsidiary is now equipped with a dedicated, data-segregated, and access-controlled GRC instance at a nominal cost and with the ability to deliver their own cyber GRC data to the parent company elegantly via a single pane of glass. What’s more interesting is that within 6 weeks from purchase the solution went live in production with all 165 business units.
Today, the company is on a mission to protect consumers by providing a platform that helps businesses and advisors demonstrate compliance, improve cybersecurity and reimagine risk.“All of the above could be said for 6clicks, we are on a growth trajectory that will lead to big things, and I suggest you stay tuned, will be a very exciting ride,” concludes Stevens.
