ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ControlPath Inc., a leading developer of automated compliance management solutions, announced today that three Fortune 100 companies have selected the ControlPath Compliance Suite to streamline management of regulatory compliance at the firms, which in 2005 combined to have more than $90 billion in revenue.

The three new ControlPath clients include a Fortune 50 healthcare provider with more than 50,000 employees and international operations; a Fortune 50 financial services conglomerate with more than $150 billion in assets, more than 50,000 employees, and global operations in more than 50 countries; and a retailer and entertainment company with operations in more than 20 countries, in excess of 6,000 retail outlets, and a major online presence.

ControlPath’s automated compliance tools will manage the efforts of all three firms as they comply with all applicable governmental regulations and laws including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCIDSS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and state privacy laws.

The ControlPath Compliance Suite, with its extensive security controls knowledgebase, coupled with robust workflow and enterprise risk reporting capabilities, enables an efficient compliance self-assessment and automated management of corrective actions and controls testing. With a library of more than 4,000 controls, ControlPath simplifies the creation of policies and the mapping of compliance regulations.

ControlPath continues to see dramatic growth in key areas of our business. In Q4, 2006, ControlPath experienced:

Client win increase by 42 percent;
