  • Updated Framework Mappings: Aligns compliance requirements with organizational maturity, facilitating scalability.
  • ESP Tracking and Risk Management: Introduces features for tracking External Service Providers and enhances risk management.
  • White Labeling: Allows MSPs to offer Cyber Verify to their clients through a white-labeled platform, improving user experience.
