OPENPAGES RELEASES ENHANCED GOVERNANCE PLATFORMOpenPages, a provider of governance, risk and compliance management software, released its OpenPages Governance Platform 5.0, an upgraded solution that features operational risk management, financial controls and IT governance modules.

Open Pages said that the 5.0 platform enables organizations to manage risk and compliance across myriad regulations, including financial reporting and privacy.

Governance Platform 5.0 also introduces two new modules that enable organizations to manage risk in IT operations and compliance with multiple regulatory mandates:

* OpenPages GCM, which automates test, review, attestation and remediation of industry and privacy compliance processes, while identifying similarities between regulations to reduce duplication of effort; and,

* OpenPages ITG, which facilitates IT governance by aligning IT process, policy, risk and operations management with corporate business initiatives, strategy and operational standards.
