Convercent Launches on Microsoft Azure to Empower Customers to Securely Help Solve Ethical, Regulatory and Compliance Challenges
DENVER, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Convercent, a leading provider of ethics and compliance software, today announced its launch on Microsoft Azure, supporting Convercent’s global expansion.
Over the last few years, the business world has seen numerous changes to compliance regulations. One of these recent regulations, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), represents the most sweeping change to data legislation in decades and is designed to protect citizens’ rights. With Azure, Convercent supports ethics and compliance customers in 138 countries to manage and oversee changes to such regulations securely and at scale.
Convercent gives its 600 global customers of all sizes and industries a solution for not only staying compliant with these changes in regulation, but also doing so with customization and control. Azure Active Directory supports rich, enterprise-class single sign-on with Convercent out of the box. Users sign in using their organizational accounts hosted in Azure Active Directory.
“Convercent’s primary goal has always been to support the ethical health of our customers by providing a straightforward way to comply with complicated regulations as they evolve and change,” said Philip Winterburn, Chief Product Officer of Convercent. “Powered by Microsoft Azure, we are able to securely tie business performance to ethics for our customers, encouraging ethical actions and behaviors across today’s business world.
David Burt, Senior Product Manager, Trusted Cloud at Microsoft said, “In our cloud-first world, companies need easier, more intuitive ways to help ensure compliance. Combining Convercent’s ethics capabilities with the data encryption power of Microsoft Azure, mutual customers will be equipped with critical tools for building a compliance and ethics program.”
