(NASDAQ: EXTR), has implemented SOX*Stream, MetricStream's solution for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. The MetricStream solution will serve as an enterprise-wide internal controls platform within Extreme Networks® for financial and non-financial controls, with the initial implementation focusing specifically on SOX controls.
