Help for individual apps is being replaced with a comprehensive HighBond help website. This content is still updated, but you can already try the new site. Go to HighBond help >

We rebranded

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.

Fields

Update the following fields in your Identity Provider settings from *.aclgrc.com to *.highbond.com:

  • Single Sign On URL
  • Recipient URL
  • Destination URL
  • Audience Restriction

    Note

    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. However, once you change the domain, check the Use HighBond option to ensure your SSO provider forwards www.aclgrc.com links to www.highbond.com.

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:

    https://accounts.highbond.com/saml/sso?custom_domain=custom-domain

    Example

    https://accounts.highbond.com/saml/sso?custom_domain=example-company-us

  • The following SLO (Single Log-Out) is supported using the Identity Provider initiated workflow:

    https://accounts.highbond.com/saml/slo/custom-domain

    Example

    https://accounts.highbond.com/saml/slo/example-company-us

System emails

System emails are now sent from notifications@highbond.com.

  • If you have whitelisted ACL emails contact your IT department to add notifications@highbond.com so everyone continues receiving system emails.
  • If you created any inbox rules for emails from notifications@aclgrc.com update them to notifications@highbond.com.

Academy notifications

Academy notifications are sent from noreply@academy.wegalvanize.com.

  • If you have whitelisted Academy emails contact your IT department to add noreply@academy.wegalvanize.com to continue receiving Academy notifications.
  • If you created any inbox rules for emails from noreply@academy.acl.com update them to include noreply@academy.wegalvanize.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 *.aclgrc.com to *.highbond.com.

If you have calculated fields in your reports that generate links to *.aclgrc.com, you can manually update the strings to point to *.highbond.com.

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.

Bookmarks

At your convenience, you can update any bookmarked pages to the new websites outlined below.
