We are evolving as an organization and adapting ourselves to a new vision for the future. To better reflect this vision, we changed our logos, company name, and platform name.
- ACL, our company, is now renamed to Galvanize.
- ACL GRC, our cloud-based platform, is now renamed to HighBond.
How are you affected?
New platform website
www.aclgrc.com has moved to www.highbond.com. You should only access the platform using www.highbond.com.
If you have whitelisted ACL websites, contact your IT department to ensure
*.highbond.com is whitelisted so people in your organization can continue to access the platform.
SSO (Single Sign-On)
If you had SSO set up on www.aclgrc.com, update your SSO configuration with the domain change to www.highbond.com. This is also necessary to access Academy or chat online with Support.
Update the following fields in your Identity Provider settings from
- Single Sign On URL
- Recipient URL
- Destination URL
- Audience Restriction
Depending on your Identity Provider, field names may be different. No changes are required to any of the SSO fields in Launchpad, including the Security Certificate Fingerprint.
Signing in and logging out
- Users that sign in through the platform can access the following URL to avoid entering their custom domain each time:
- The following SLO (Single Log-Out) is supported using the Identity Provider initiated workflow:
System emails are now sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you have whitelisted ACL emails contact your IT department to add email@example.com so everyone continues receiving system emails.
- If you created any inbox rules for emails from firstname.lastname@example.org update them to email@example.com.
Academy notifications are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you have whitelisted Academy emails contact your IT department to add email@example.com to continue receiving Academy notifications.
- If you created any inbox rules for emails from firstname.lastname@example.org update them to include email@example.com.
Links in the Reports module
Links in reports display as
*.highbond.com. Links that you share or broadcast will also display as
*.highbond.com. No action is required to update these links from
If you have calculated fields in your reports that generate links to
*.aclgrc.com, you can manually update the strings to point to
Global navigation bar
We made improvements to the global navigation bar in HighBond. This allows you to easily navigate back to Launchpad, switch between modules, and return to the homepage of the module you are working in.
At your convenience, you can update any bookmarked pages to the new websites outlined below.
