WINNER

Orchestria

Orchestria 4.0

Orchestria 4.0 provides an excellent set of tools for companies faced with ensuring that e-mail-, instant messaging- and Web-based communications meet regulatory requirements. Orchestria focuses on-and has developed expertise for-financial institutions, but, with Version 4.0, the company has built out its policy library to make the tool suitable for a broader range of industries. These prebuilt policies also mitigate one of the more significant problems facing message compliance tools-the time required to create and deploy policies.

The Excellence Awards judges in this category were impressed with how the Orchestria platform differs from many of the communications policy compliance tools in this space: Rather than relying on lexicon and keyword analysis for managing policies, Orchestria 4.0 allows compliance officers to create more complex rules that use a weighting algorithm to more accurately predict if a message violates a given policy, reducing the number of false-positive results. The judges also appreciated that Orchestrias architecture allows companies to actively police internal and external communications while providing real-time feedback to users when they send communications that violate policy, helping reinforce policy on a daily basis.

FINALISTS

EMC

Open-Xchanges Open-Xchange Server 5s broader goals of providing a flexible collaboration platform that makes it easy for users to manage tasks and projects made it a finalist in our judging.
