There are a number of differences between the 3 Risk Manager apps offered by SoftComply. You can read the comparison between them here.
To summarise, the SoftComply Information Risk Manager is a subset of the Risk Manager Plus, i.e. functionality of the Information Security Risk Manager is included in the Risk Manager Plus.
The Risk Manager Plus is more scaleable than the InfoSec Risk Manager, e.g.:
- You can customize Risk Models in the Information Security Risk Manager but you can’t add new Risk Models in the app. You can do that in the Risk Manager Plus app.
- You can customize the Object Registers in the Information Security Risk Manager but you can’t create new ones in the app. You can build new Object Registers in the Risk Manager app though.
- You have 2 sheets in the Risk Table that you can customize in the Information Security Risk Manager but you can’t create more Table sheets in the app. You can create any number of sheets for the Risk Tables in the Risk Manager Plus app.

Object Registers are a feature of the Information Security Risk Manager that allows you to create custom data structures (i.e. data tables) and link these structures to Jira issues like you would link other issues. Custom data structures are like database tables that you can build inside the Information Security Risk Manager application. When these registers are filled with data you can link Jira issues with the data objects. In other words, the object registers are like complex customisable dropdown lists you can use as Jira issue fields
