Security Questionnaire Response (SQR) Express

Security Questionnaire Response (SQR) Express

Our expertise

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Cloud Service Provider (CSP) compliance and security teams are inundated and overwhelmed with having to complete customer third party cybersecurity questionnaires. This challenge slows down the sales process and erodes revenue generation capabilities while sales departments wait on security and compliance information to be collected and prepared.  Security questionnaire response delays are the single biggest factor in lost deals and friction between sales and compliance teams.  At the same time, this chronically poor process distracts security and compliance teams from their more strategic objectives of continuously maturing cloud service provider’s cybersecurity and compliance maturity.

SQR Express supercharges SaaS providers order to cash cycle by taking the burden off the cybersecurity compliance organization and streamlining the response to security questionnaires through the Request for Proposal and Post-Sales process.  c1secure provides security and compliance subject matter expertise for on-demand management, fulfillment, and coordination of prospect assessment questionnaires assuring proposals are completed to meet response deadlines.  

SQR Express is aligned with industry standards such as NIST, FedRamp, ISO27001, SOC II, HIPAA, and PCI, among others. The solution incorporates AI-based principles, default response templates, and automated processes that expedite sales, positively impact revenue generation and provide SaaS providers and CSPs with a competitive advantage.  SQR Express is delivered at a variety of service level options that are designed in alignment with each client’s revenue generation cycle time requirements. 

SQR Express leverages and is fully integrated with c1secure’s industry-leading platform, CISO Sentinel.  The CISO Sentinel Integrated Risk Management platform allows organizations to view the current state of the request response in process and provides monthly performance reporting to stakeholders through self-service dashboards.
