The First of Several Patents Anticipated from the Leader in Continuous Transaction Monitoring Technology

ATLANTA, GA – May 27, 2011 – Further solidifying its position as the leader in Continuous Transaction Monitoring (CTM), Oversight Systems has been assigned a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (#2006/0212486).

“This award is just the first in a series of unique patents you’ll see from Oversight in the rapidly-growing field of Continuous Transaction Monitoring. It is being used by a growing list of partners to deliver billions of dollars in cost savings and improved compliance coverage to customers,” stated Dan Kuokka, CTO, Oversight Systems. 

Leading organizations are recognizing that Oversight’s CTM is an integral part of a commitment to continuous business improvement and overall operational excellence.

The patent, “Methods and Systems for Compliance Monitoring Knowledge Base”, covers a knowledge representation standard that allows the advanced analytics required for continuous transaction monitoring to be expressed succinctly and naturally.” The Oversight Integrity Check standard encapsulates multiple analytical techniques, allowing each to contribute evidence within a probabilistic forensic framework, and it is designed to incorporate data from heterogeneous source systems into a unified monitoring environment.

These unique capabilities enable Oversight customers to leverage “Big Data” – the large pools of data being accumulated in every sector and function of the global economy – for business advantage. With Oversight organizations can create “virtual analysts” to provide insights into improving business results within their transaction and related processes.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The system allows establishment, codification, and maintenance of enterprise policies, monitors electronic transactions of the enterprise from various and possible data heterogeneous sources, detects exceptions to established policies, reports exceptions to authorized users…and provides a case management system for tracking exceptions…" The patent application was filed on January 31, 2006 (11/307,303).
