The combined solution will provide Ebury with a roadmap to improve efficiency, visibility and data-driven intelligence
Vancouver, September 14, 2021—Galvanize, a Diligent brand and the global leader in SaaS governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) software, today announces that Ebury, the largest global transaction platform to help businesses trade internationally, has chosen Galvanize’s HighBond platform to unify and streamline its enterprise risk and control management across the entire business.
As Ebury continues to grow, Galvanize’s HighBond platform will give full visibility over risks and controls, and will provide a scalable system without adding cost. Ebury will also elevate this visibility to the Boardroom through Diligent’s board governance tools. Together, this combined solution provides Ebury with a platform to improve efficiency, visibility and data-driven intelligence across the entire organization.
“A major factor in our decision was HighBond’s intuitive interface and user experience, which will help drive adoption and further embed a risk-aware culture in the business,” said David Sirignano, Global Head of Risk at Ebury.
Established in London in 2009, Ebury is now one of the largest and best-funded FinTech companies in Europe, operating in over 20 countries globally. Ebury’s strong growth has created the need to efficiently manage its increasing compliance and assurance obligations. It identified Diligent as an attractive partner because of its scalable, automated, and integrated risk management platform. Ebury selected HighBond for its ability to unify data and provide on-demand risk and assurance reports, which enable confident decision-making.
“Technology-driven disruptors like Ebury need a partner that can help drive their growth, enabling executives to make strategic decisions based on data they trust,” said Keith Fenner, Managing Director, International at Galvanize. “HighBond will build on Diligent’s boardroom tools to manage operational risk across the business, resulting in an integrated solution that gives executives the confidence that critical decisions are being made intelligently.”
Galvanize, a Diligent brand, is the leading provider of award-winning, cloud-based security, risk management, compliance, and audit software for some of the world’s largest organizations.
