anonymessage™ Product Information

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the newly created Public Company Accounting Oversight Board require that publicly-held companies must establish a system by which the Audit Committee of their Board of Directors can receive confidential, anonymous complaints by employees with respect to accounting/internal controls. How will your company achieve compliance with these new regulations? With anonymessage you can meet government requirements by allowing any company employee to confidentially and anonymously report potential wrongdoing to your Audit Committee or General Counsel via the web, telephone, or postal mail. Our secure service allows you to track and monitor any reported complaints without compromising employee anonymity. Communications are handled securely, confidentially, and anonymously without relying on your company's existing e-mail system or infrastructure.
