Compliance Risk, a governance-as-a-service solution designed for managed service providers (MSPs), confirmed today that they have secured a $3.5 million investment from Bellini Capital.

Alongside the investment, the company will undergo a rebranding and emerge as Compliance Scorecard.

Bellini Capital is well-known in the MSP market for being spearheaded by Arnie Bellini, the founder and previous CEO of ConnectWise.

Vertical markets such as healthcare, finance, and even automotive dealerships have found that they now have compliance needs, and this represents an opportunity for MSPs. Companies such as Compliance Scorecard aim to make offering and selling compliance and governance-as-a-service easier for MSPs.

Addressing the Increasing Need for Compliance

In today's technological landscape, compliance stands out as a mounting concern for both MSPs and the clientele they serve. 

The decision to transition to the name Compliance Scorecard is indicative of the firm's commitment to streamlining the intricacies of compliance, according to the company. The rebranding emphasizes the company's capability to facilitate and simplify the compliance processes, making it more accessible for MSPs to integrate the vital service into their existing suite of offerings to clients. The initiative also caters to MSPs’ internal governance requirements.

With its suite of services, Compliance Scorecard provides MSPs with customized policies and procedures designed to align with particular regulatory and industry compliance benchmarks. The funds acquired from Bellini Capital's investment will be channeled towards broadening the company's product portfolio, paving the way for the introduction of novel risk-management and governance modules, according to Compliance Scorecard.

His firsthand experiences underscore the rationale behind incorporating functionalities in the company’s services that empower MSPs to deploy compliance solutions seamlessly.
