ControlPanelGRC Expands Its Presence in Europe with Implementations at Nyrstar and PPG Europe


ControlPanelGRC™, a provider of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) compliance automation solutions for SAP® environments, has announced that PPG Europe and Nyrstar have implemented modules of the solution as part of their compliance automation efforts. The implementations add to the number of European companies looking to ControlPanelGRC to build their audit readiness capabilities.

According to Klaus Schemmer, IT Security Manager at PPG Industries Europe, “Audit readiness is a priority for us. ControlPanelGRC provides our European-based team with a set of modules that help us more readily access data needed for audits in a rapid timeframe.”

“Nyrstar's implementation of ControlPanelGRC's Emergency Access module was simple and only took us a few days,” says Guido Lauwers, Group Manager, Business Applications for Nyrstar. “Based on our positive experience, which met our requirements, we also decided to implement ControlPanelGRC 's Risk Analyzer and Usage Analyzer modules. ControlPanelGRC allows us to stay continuously in control of segregation of duties requirements while significantly reducing manual security maintenance activities by our SAP Security team.”

“Good governance is good business and we are excited to see more European-based operations take advantage of ControlPanelGRC's toolset,” says Albert Kisjes, head of Agilos, a Netherlands-based compliance consulting firm and value-added reseller of ControlPanelGRC. “The solution's compliance automation functionality combined with its ease-of-use is getting a lot of attention in the European market.”

“We are pleased to add PPG Europe and Nyrstar to our portfolio of customers,” says Dan Wilhelms, President and Founder of SymSoft Corporation, ControlPanelGRC's parent company. “As European companies come under greater compliance scrutiny, we hope our solution is chosen as the tool that keeps them always audit ready”
