Inefficient Data Management

Regardless of the relationship between the consultancy and the client — long term management or short term engagement — efficient data collection, analysis, and management is likely to be a continuous area for focus and improvement. 

With PlexTrac, you can import all of your network and application scanning tools into one place and manipulate and analyze those results to form the basis of findings and writeups on those findings. Bring all your tools together in PlexTrac for better, quicker aggregation and visualization.

One-Off Writeups

Let’s face it, reporting is the major chore that makes finishing off the year and client commitments a real drag. Efficient reporting starts with modularizing writeups of common findings so that you aren’t starting from scratch or wasting time searching for baseline notes in products not really designed for your needs. 

Quit wasting time triaging scanner results, searching through Word docs for something close to what you need, and then copying and pasting everything into a template — that will still need to be tended before it’s ready to go. PlexTrac provides a customizable database of reusable writeups, which can be quickly and easily searched, modified to the situation, and added to a report all in one platform.

Messing with Report Templates

Reporting can be a time suck at every point in the process, particularly at the point of delivery when more than just the results of your work matters. You also have to consider the clients preferences and best practices for communicating your methodology and representing your organization’s identity. That’s a tall order for any template and makes the last step in reporting an unnecessary lift. 

PlexTrac allows you to take all the work you’ve done in analyzing your data, preparing your writeups, adding evidence and export the report to completely custom .docx templates. Streamline the whole of the reporting process into one platform and still represent your methodology and retain your organizational branding in the final deliverable with a click of a button.

Bogged Down Assessment Administration

For those in the governance, risk, and compliance space, your priorities may look a little different, but data management and reporting still tend to be areas that lack efficiency. PlexTrac’s Assessment Module is a perfect tool for customizing questionnaires the results of which can be collected, combined with evidence, and placed into customized reports all in one convenient platform.

If you are interested in streamlining your assessment administration, evidence collection, and reporting processes AND improving communication for all involved in the assessment process, PlexTrac is the platform for you.

We’ll talk about all these issues and more as we deep dive into ways to improve workflow management for security consultancies. It’s time to conquer Q4 with PlexTrac. Book a demo today!
