Quarule Technology

Quarule brings to the market a new generation of technology for Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) automation, an Intelligent Rules System that makes the logic of regulations and policies machine understandable. Quarule systems effectively understand the meaning of regulations and policies and then perform automated compliance oversight and risk management analysis, tracking and reporting. Capable of finding violations at commercial scale with precision and evolving intelligence, Quarule technology automates control functions and guides program management tasks and workflow. Quarule technology radically improves the accuracy and scope of oversight while saving time and money.

Quarule incorporates Sunflower, semantic rule-based reasoning technology licensed from SRI International, a leading research center. SRI has fueled the digital revolution from the beginning — its pioneering innovations include the computer mouse, interactive computing, the U.S. HDTV standard, and Siri, the first virtual personal assistant.
