Vignette Corp. (NASDAQ: VIGN) and Certus Software announced that they will join forces to expand the breadth of their compliance offerings by together bringing to market a Sarbanes-Oxley compliance application with a records management backbone. This integrated solution enables critical compliance information to be correctly managed over its lifecycle. Certus and Vignette’s shared compliance vision leverages Certus’ Governance Suite and Vignette’s Records & Documents. The capabilities will be integrated to allow business information to be safely stored in a secure repository with rights and privileges specific to each end user. By applying lifecycle management to each record, businesses can safely store compliance-related data as long as legally mandated and no longer, thereby reducing both overall risk and the mass of outdated and irrelevant information clogging the enterprise infrastructure. Vignette’s secure repository will provide management and protection of compliance information, tying in Certus’ compliance framework to the most current and relevant business critical information. Business users will be able to use the repository as a single source of compliance information, which includes paper, email, Web content, images, electronic documents, audio and video, in a secure environment configurable to their needs. http://www.vignette.com,
