IXOS Software Offers Solutions for Regulatory Compliance

Nov 14, 2003

IXOS Software, a provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM), has unveiled its commitment to deliver a complete set of regulatory compliance solutions that will address requirements of corporate governance regulations including, Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II, and SEC 17a-4, as well as emerging European standards. IXOS intends to deliver solutions to meet the growing market concerns for compliance while meeting storage, security, and scalability requirements.

The company's initial solution offering, the IXOS e-mail Compliance Solution for SEC 17a-4 is built for the Securities Industry and aimed specifically at dealer brokers. Available immediately, the solution is designed to help companies comply with specific regulatory requirements focused on the use and retention of email. This scalable solution will help businesses manage, search, and retain emails that have business, legal, and compliance implications, while controlling the costs associated with email management.

The IXOS e-mail Compliance Solution is an integrated ECM solution that is designed to help companies meet securities industry regulations such as SEC 17a-4, NASD Rules 3010/3110, and NYSE Rule 440. The solution enables a structured process to search, sample, review, and track email according to compliance policies. Currently available for the Microsoft Exchange environment, a Lotus Notes version will be available in 2004.

At the center of the IXOS e-mail Compliance Solution is the IXOS-eCONserver, a single content repository for email and document management that serves as the common foundation and core of all IXOS' ECM offerings. This server delivers secure document archiving, user authentication, and document distribution and can manage millions of documents in a live system. Solutions packages designed for specific compliance issues will plug into the IXOS-eCONserver backbone. This announcement of IXOS' first solution to address email compliance and regulatory requirements coincides with the new product release of e-CONserver for Microsoft Exchange version 2, an email management solution to support Microsoft Exchange 2003.
