Cutting-edge EUC services & end-user computing tools to elevate your financial risk compliance
With the rise of globalization, distributed workforces, and increased regulation, taking control of your Shadow IT and EUC risk has never been more important.
ClusterSeven shines a light into hidden, sensitive spreadsheets, applications, and data that lie out of IT’s control and pose risk, helping you efficiently capture, monitor, and update one centralized inventory. Offering better visibility and control over your full portfolio of applications — including things like permission settings, update tracking, version control, and more — ClusterSeven makes it faster and easier for your organization to meet audit requirements, comply with regulatory updates, and mitigate risk before it makes an impact.
Build defensible EUC compliance with ClusterSeven
Keep a complete inventory of your EUC estate
Classify the risks associated with your newly discovered EUC files and organize them in a centralized database. Once you’ve established the spreadsheets your organization is using, you can carry out a deeper risk analysis on critical files using rules that matter to your business, such as the complexity of a formula or macro, use of sensitive terms in the file like “confidential,” inclusion of unprotected client or personal data, or the presence of hidden worksheets.
Monitor and track access and changes
Easily monitor who’s making changes — and to which files — by deploying workflows and alerts within your central EUC environment designed to help you meet audit and compliance requirements. Know exactly when these files were created or modified and who took those actions using role-based security permissions. And don’t worry about having too many spreadsheets or EUCs; ClusterSeven can handle over 100,000 files in a single database.
Satisfy regulators and stakeholders
By creating a control framework for your spreadsheets and databases, you’re establishing a defensible compliance program that can satisfy the requirements of various regulatory bodies. ClusterSeven can assist with managing the review and approval process for critical cells in high-risk or high-stakes spreadsheets and can automate the production of documentary evidence for different regulation requirements with its robust reporting dashboard. ClusterSeven helps satisfy the requirements of a variety of regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), SMCR, OpRes, data privacy regulations like GDPR, SS 3/18, and SR 11-7 and is agile enough to adapt to any changes in the regulatory obligations.

Building a business case for EUC projects
We joined forces with Chartis to discuss the role of EUC application in moder://n businesses and explore the risks, reputation and cost overheads of EUC applications, before considering the returns to be gained by the use of ClusterSeven solutions to manage the EUC landscape.
“Shadow IT” refers to the hundreds or even thousands of End User Computing (EUC) spreadsheets and other data assets hidden across your enterprise, created by employees using applications that are outside of IT’s development and management process; Excel spreadsheets are one of the most common examples.
ClusterSeven locates the spreadsheets and EUC applications in use across your organization, identifies the relationships between them and their data lineage, and assesses the risks associated with them. You’ll gain transparency into what files you have, who owns each one, and which areas of the business use them.
