Integration will add SOX and global risk compliance capabilities to Certent's Disclosure Management suite.
TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2017 /CNW/ -- Certent, Inc., a leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for equity compensation and financial disclosure management, today announced a technology partnership with Resolver. Resolver's cloud-based software protects over 1,000 companies worldwide through its fully-integrated risk, compliance, security and audit platform – including applications that specifically address Internal Control Over Financial Reporting (ICFR) and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) programs.
The partnership will bring expanded disclosure management and SOX compliance solutions immediately to more than 3,400 Certent and Resolver customers by offering direct access to Resolver's simple yet powerful platform for managing their SOX compliance programs and related reporting from start to finish. The SOX/ICFR application is fully aligned to the Council of Sponsoring Organization's (COSO) Internal Control Framework while also reflecting relevant audit standards put forth by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
"SOX compliance is a natural extension of our customers' regulatory reporting processes," says Michael Madigan, General Manager of Disclosure Management at Certent. "We're excited to connect our solutions with Resolver and provide an integrated experience for enterprise risk management. As one of the first companies to offer a SaaS-based SOX solution, Resolver has over a decade of experience and leadership that they bring to each customer."
Resolver customers can combine the power of Certent's financial and disclosure reporting solution complete with workflow, audit trails, approval, and permission controls to their existing SOX/ICFR and risk management activities. The integration will give reporting teams visibility into the status of compliance efforts and allow corporate risk factors to be easily reviewed when creating new compliance tasks.
"We see increasing opportunities in the market for companies to further align processes, enhance efficiency, and better mitigate risks associated with reporting and compliance processes, and Certent's leading disclosure management capabilities offers this to our global customers," states Brian Link, VP of GRC Strategy and Partnerships at Resolver.
