Nasdaq: Nasdaq BWise Positioned as a 'Leader' in Latest Report on Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms From Independent Research Firm

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq BWise (Nasdaq:NDAQ) has
been positioned as a 'Leader' according to the Forrester Research, Inc
report: "The Forrester Wave(TM): Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms,
Q1 2016". Forrester Research ranked fourteen GRC technology vendors based on
'Current offering', 'Strategy' and 'Market presence'.

According to the report:

"Organizations face threats in all aspects of their business, and ad hoc
management of those crises leaves them more vulnerable to impacts to their
revenue and reputation. Only through a holistic view of risk can
organizations adequately prepare for such events and mitigate the potential
damage."
"Nasdaq BWise offers a solid platform with strong capabilities in analytics.
[...] BWise has capabilities that include audit, risk, compliance and policy
management as well as sustainability management and information security."

"If the company executes well, it may be disruptive to the GRC market [...]."

Commenting on the research, Peter de Verdier, Head of BWise, said: "Balancing
risks and performance is one of the biggest challenges businesses face in
today's demanding environment. Organizations must establish a risk culture
that encourages and rewards transparency and integrity if they are to prevent
fraud, non-compliance and other undesirable incidents. This is what drives us
to continue to develop and improve our globally deployed, leading GRC
Platform. We are honored to have been named as a leader in the GRC Platform
landscape by Forrester. Thanks to the skill and dedication of our team, we
will continue our efforts to deliver comprehensive, integrated GRC solutions
that are easy to deploy, easy to use and easy to maintain."

Luc Brandts, CTO and Founder of BWise, continued: "Nasdaq continuously invests
in BWise software and services to realize its vision of a global economy
characterized by transparency and trust. We are proud to see, of what we
consider to be, industry-leading recognition for BWise's vision and products.
We want to thank our customers for their loyalty and trust."
