Avepoint, the established leader in enterprise-class management, governance, and compliance software solutions for next-generation social collaboration platforms, announced today that it won the 2014 Disability-smart award in the category of Products and Services, B2B for its compliance solutions. AvePoint Compliance Guardian and Compliance Guardian Online – part of AvePoint Online Services, used by nearly 2 million cloud users today – offer complete Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) platforms that provide comprehensive analysis across information gateways to address and correct accessibility violations.

The awards were presented on Monday, December 15, 2014, to organizations that exhibit leading practice within the ten criteria of Business Disability Forum’s (BDF) Disability Standard. The Disability Standard represents best practices and provides guidance in specific areas to support businesses in their journey to becoming disability-smart by improving performance for disabled customers, employees, and stakeholders. The judging panel included leading experts in the area of disability, representatives from BDF’s Member and Partner organizations, and disabled opinion leaders.

Award winners demonstrated an outstanding commitment to employing, working with, and doing business with disabled people, and were judged based on the ten criteria of the Disability Standard. AvePoint was selected as a 2014 winner due to its ability to identify and address specific web and enterprise system accessibility issues in order to meet and exceed global standards. This includes accessibility risk, which can be measured with out-of-the-box or customized checks that map to a wide range of requirements and legislation, such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as well as other international and industry-specific accessibility guidelines.

“It is an honor for AvePoint to be recognized through this award as a global leader in enabling people to work together no matter what they face on a daily basis,” said Dana Simberkoff, Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, AvePoint. “Our work with Business Disability Forum shows organizations that they can simplify the auditing and reporting process required to ensure business properties – from public-facing websites to intranet portals – accommodate disabled customers, constituents, and members of their workforce at all times.”

"The number of entrants in the awards scheme highlights the increasing importance businesses are placing upon meeting the needs of disabled people – and rightly so,” said Paul Day, Chief of Staff, Business Disability Forum. “Businesses in both the private and public sectors are starting to realize the benefits of measuring and improving their disability performance, which extend not only to the business itself but also to employees and customers.”

With robust compliance, governance, infrastructure management, and productivity solutions, as well as global 24/7 live support, AvePoint today helps more than 13,000 organizations enable enterprise collaboration with confidence. AvePoint is a corporate member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals as well as the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group, and the company’s Compliance and Risk Management practitioners participate in International Standards bodies including the W3C and United Nations Internet Governance Forum in addition to providing privacy guidance and expertise to a wide range of domestic and international government agencies and corporate organizations.

All of this, taken together, has significantly and fundamentally changed the way individuals live and work, and the way organizations conduct business.

The year 2014 has come and nearly gone, and it's clear that enterprise risk management will not go quietly into the night.
