MetricStream SOX Compliance Solution
With the enactment of SOX and its counterparts in other countries – including Law 262 (Italy), J-SOX (Japan), Loi de Sécurité Financière (France), and Bill 198/ CSA 52-313 (Canada) – companies are striving to ensure that their financial compliance and reporting activities are effective, sustainable, and cost-efficient.
