QUMAS Ranked In Software Magazine's 24th Annual Software 500 For Fifth Consecutive Year

Leading Compliance Vendor Achieves Mark with Closed-Loop Compliance Process, Providing Comprehensive, Holistic Insight and Control for Enterprise Compliance Initiatives

FLORHAM PARK, New Jersey — November 7, 2006 - QUMAS, the leading developer of enterprise governance, risk and compliance solutions, today announced its inclusion for the fifth consecutive year on the Software 500, Software Magazine’s list of the world’s foremost software and services providers, published as an online catalog on www.Softwaremag.com.

QUMAS is a leading developer of enterprise compliance management solutions designed to help regulated industries meet industry best practices and external regulatory standards. For more than a decade, the company has provided industry-proven solutions to market leaders in heavily regulated industries, such as life sciences and financial services.

"Faced with exposure to an expanding pool of risks and in an increasingly litigious environment, highly regulated industries are looking to simultaneously minimize their exposure and control the overall cost of compliance," said Paul Hands, CEO at QUMAS. "This has compelled high-performing companies to take a holistic approach to their compliance initiatives rather than the traditional siloed view. Companies are turning to the QUMAS closed-loop compliance model to better monitor, control and audit their compliance activities."

The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.

The QUMAS ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2005. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at www.Softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.


With over a decade of experience, QUMAS is the only global compliance software company offering a complete solution to regulated industries. Recognized as the world leader in Enterprise, Governance, Risk and Compliance the company has over 250 customer deployments including global leaders such as Fidelity Investments.
