Fighting fraud, waste, and abuse in Oregon

“I found dead people using food stamps and public assistance. I found inmates that were in prison on public assistance. But I think the single coolest thing is helping to bring down a Mexican drug cartel that was using food stamps and taking those dollars and channeling them to Mexico.”

Jamie Ralls, Principal Auditor, Oregon Secretary of State

Frequently asked questions

Who is Galvanize?

Galvanize is a GRC technology solutions company. We build security, risk management, compliance, and audit software for some of the world’s largest organizations. We’re on a mission to unite and strengthen these different teams through our collective HighBond software platform. Learn more about us.

Do you have any video demos of your platform?

We’ve got product overview videos, but HighBond is a vast platform with many different tools. So to really get a sense of how the software will work for you, it’s best to chat directly with one of our specialists. They can shape a product walk-through based on your exact needs. Ready to talk?

How much does HighBond cost?

We know it’s not the ideal answer, but “it really depends.” Because HighBond is comprised of many different tools, there are a lot of configuration options. Add in the number of users for the platform, user permissions, any customization, content needs, and consulting, and you’ll see why it’s important for us to first understand what you need before throwing out a number. Let’s build your perfect solution!

What do I get with the HighBond platform?

One of the best things about the HighBond platform is that it’s modular. You can start with one of the products—like AuditBond or ControlsBond—add in ACL Robotics for automation, then add on as your governance program grows. See all of the products that make up the HighBond platform. You can also download the HighBond product sheet.

How do I make a business case for GRC software?

Getting buy-in and approvals for any software can be difficult. Especially when the software will be used by many different departments, pulls in proprietary data, and requires IT approvals. To help you navigate this challenge, we put together a GRC buyer’s guide.

How secure is the HighBond platform?

We take security very seriously. We use industry advanced and mature infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) providers to host our SaaS offering from four data center locations globally (North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia). The data centers provide many physical and logical security controls and are compliant with various certifications and third-party attestations, including but not limited to: ISO 27001, PCI DSS Level 1, SSAE-16/ISAE 3402 SOC 1 (previously SAS 70 Type II), SOC 2 & 3, and HIPAA.
