"Monitor Segregation of Duties (SoD) on Oracle E-Business Platforms Integrated in a GRC Platform"

S-HERTOGENBOSCH, The Netherlands, March 15, 2011 - BWise, the global leader in Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)
management software, announced today it has signed a cooperative agreement
with CaoSys Limited, headquartered in Yorkshire, United Kingdom. CaoSys
offers enterprise application productivity and compliance solutions for
Oracle(R) E-Business platforms. Both companies will benefit from one
another's understanding of the global GRC market and its challenges. With
BWise as the global GRC platform and CaoSys's compliance solutions,
organizations will benefit from an integrated and holistic view on how to
design, implement, optimize and deploy a best-in-class GRC platform.

Enable exception reporting

BWise customers will benefit from the integration of continuous
( and
reporting capabilities on potential Segregation of Duties (SoD) conflicts in
their Oracle E-Business platforms. The traditional approach in GRC projects,
where risk management and/or internal control frameworks are reviewed on a
manual basis, will be replaced by an automated process of continuously
monitoring relevant data from an ERP environment. BWise combined with
CaoSys's compliance solution will enable to initialize exception reporting
and managing issues while creating a full audit trail in BWise.

Ensure Segregation of Duties and Access Control

A risk-based approach to managing access controls, including exception
reporting and signing off on mitigating controls in an integrated GRC
environment, is the most effective way to ensure proper SoD and effective
access controls in Oracle E-Business environments. Robert Pijselman, CEO of
BWise, said "We are proud to welcome CaoSys as one of our strategic business
partners. Their deep Oracle E-Business understanding and broad market
experience adds value to our existing customer base. The recent integration
of CaoSys's CS*Comply/SEsoftware into the BWise GRC platform is an example of
the expanding market for integrated GRC solutions."

Save time and money

Craig O'Neill, managing director at CaoSys, said, "We are delighted by
this opportunity to join forces with an industry recognized and leading
player in this market. It is a strategic choice for CaoSys to select an
integrated GRC solution vendor such as BWise as one of our business partners.
Their Magic Quadrant positioned GRC solution is the ideal platform to help us
broaden our reach and strengthen our brand. By integrating a new standalone
edition of our CS*Comply solution into the BWise Enterprise GRC Platform, we
are bringing more organizations the opportunity to benefit from the latest in
GRC technology to assist them in saving time and money as well as adhere to
and fulfill their risk and compliance management requirements." For more
