6clicks launches first-of-its-kind, scalable Hub & Spoke architecture


Globally recognized GRC software provider 6clicks has engineered a first-of-its-kind multi-tenanted architecture to support distributed organizations managing multiple, autonomous GRC programs.

This architecture underpins the AI-powered 6clicks GRC platform and facilitates organizations to deploy multiple teams connected to a centralized hub - perfect for federated, multi-team structures.

Each team within the multi-tenanted infrastructure gains access to its autonomous, functionality-rich GRC platform protected by data and access control segregation.

This model enables organizations to deploy multiple autonomous teams or entities connected to a single hub for roll-up reporting, management, and visibility.

Hub & Spoke creates a bidirectional relationship between a parent organization and their respective entities, an advisor and their clients, or state-wide governance over cities, for example.

This means that decentralized organizations with complex hierarchies can consolidate risk and compliance data into a single pane of glass while empowering their teams with the autonomy they need to succeed.

“The decision to choose 6clicks as the platform was simple because of its unique Hub & Spoke multi-tenancy architecture, which enables us to deploy the capability quickly and easily across the large number of business units and portfolio companies we have under management worldwide.”

This architecture is ideal to meet the needs of any organization who have defined standards, requirements, and data input needs at a centralized management console while maintaining independence at the subsidiary or entity level. The 6clicks platform is trusted by many of the largest cyber security advisors and enterprises in the world including PwC, CyberCX, NTT, Tata Consulting Services, Tesserent, Wipro, Protiviti, BDO, Thales, and many more, because of this unique multi-tenancy capability.
