Automating Sarbanes-Oxley compliance: Understanding SOX software

The Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance software market can be confusing, with a variety of technology choices. Find out more about choosing and implementing SOX software.

When Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (referred to as SOX or Sarbox) there weren't many software packages that could assist organizations in meeting compliance requirements, according to analysts and experts.

Today, the market has changed. Organizations looking to lower compliance costs and simplify processes have to navigate a wide variety of SOX compliance software and technology to find the best solution for their needs. But more options often lead to more questions about evaluating and implementing the software -- as well as understanding what exactly the different kinds of technology can do.
