NEW YORK and DEN BOSCH, Netherlands, July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BWise, a NASDAQ OMX company and a global leader in Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) software, today announced that it is positioned as a Champion for Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance (EGRC) Platforms in Info-Tech Research Group's most recent Vendor Landscape report.
Scale up GRC Processes
The Info-Tech Vendor Landscape report states, "With Big Data on the horizon and increasing cloud uptake, eGRC solutions will become more prevalent to help ensure compliance of corporate data with regulatory and internal standards. Organizations will have to scale up their GRC processes to keep up with growing data feeds and scale out to ensure vendors are also compliant with regulatory controls."
Continuing growth for BWise
"It is an honor to be situated as a Champion in the recent Info-Tech eGRC Vendor Landscape," said BWise CEO Robert Pijselman. "The report is recognition of our consistent growth and progress supporting clients around the world. It also validates our continued focus on technological investments and the synergies of BWise integrated with other NASDAQ OMX solutions."
According to the report, "Large multinational companies looking for an enterprise-wide GRC suite should consider NASDAQ OMX BWise. It is an established solution that has the backing of exchange powerhouse NASDAQ OMX. On-premises installations are more flexible than others that offer it. The entire system is actually installed behind your firewall and offerings can be spun up and down as needed."
