Summary of Changes

Secure File Evidence (usage of cryptography)

1. Secure File Evidence

Report Status and Sign-off (supplier report tolerance)

2. Report Status and Sign-off

We brought draft, review and sign-off status to Reports including a secure audit log history about the changes made in the Report: who, what, when.

Report Editing, Advanced Filtering and a New Shiny Button

Summary of Changes

Alyne Report Remove Risks (BYOD program)

1. Remove Risks from Reports

Removing Risks from Reports is new feature that includes a documented reason and a history log. Of course you have the ability to reinstate those risks again.

Alyne Filter Reactions and Comments (removing risks from reports)

2. Filter by Comments and Reactions

Last time we introduced Reactions on Controls. You now can filter Controls by Reaction and Comments. You also can filter Assessment Responses by Comments.

Alyne Hold Button to Delete, filter buttons hold and delete (personal cyber check)

3. Secure Delete

"Do you really want to delete ...?" is pretty old-fashioned. Instead of a confirmation popup the user presses and holds the button for 2 seconds and releases to execute the delete.

Reactions are a revolutionary feature that integrates social interactions to the Alyne Cyber Security, Risk Management and Compliance solution. Get insights which Controls are understood, supported, implemented or even seem to be confusing for your organisation.

Reactions on Control Sets (Personal Cyber Check)

2. Reaction Summary

You get consolidated statistics on reactions per Control Set to get an overview about how many members of your organisation have read, implemented, are supporting your Controls or even are confused with them.

Advanced search by standards (Recovery testing)

3. Advanced Search

Since product launch, the search always has been a powerful feature to filter Control Sets based on keywords. Now we are adding Standards and Regulation to the search.

Restricted Funnels, Expert Digest and more new features

Summary of Changes

Compliance Summary

1. Funnel audience

After our initial release of Funnels - Alyne's risk-driven workflow and categorisation component - we are now adding extended access control. Experts can restrict viewing and using Funnels to selected Alyne users.

Expert's digest from Stefan to Karl

2. Expert Digest

The Expert Digest is a daily or weekly notification email sent to owners of Assessments in case recipients added comments or asked questions to an ongoing Assessment - very handy for keeping track of larger Assessment campaigns with lots of Controls and recipients.

Expert Digest - control library

3. Controls Selector Update

The Controls Selector is the core widget when defining Control Sets and Assessments as it allows you to browse efficiently through the Alyne Controls Library and select the Controls you want to have in your Control Set or Assessment.
