December 14, 2016 News


Penta has been shortlisted for WealthBriefing Swiss Awards 2017 in the Compliance category. The awards recognize companies, teams and individuals that have demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2016.

Testament to excellence

Now in its fourth year, the WealthBriefing Swiss Awards set to spread the word about the profession’s  biggest achievements to a wider audience. As in previous years, independence, integrity and genuine insight will be the watchwords of the judging process for an expert panel of both private banks and trusted advisors and consultants to the sector.

“We are delighted to compete with prestigious names of the industry and look forward to February 2017 for the jury’s final decision”, said Penta CEO Farhad Khalilnia. “Penta has always been at the forefront of innovation, providing clients with highest quality IT services meeting stringent security and compliance requirements. This nomination is a great honour and testament to the hard work that we have put in over the last 12 months.”

Regulatory IT compliance

Penta’s entire infrastructure is audited yearly by EY (Ernst & Young) to international standards. The audits meet all major financial regulators’ IT compliance requirements, and are available to every client for compliance needs and peace of mind. Unlike usual compliance reports in the IT sector, Penta’s compliance reporting covers the full range of managed IT services, from data center facilities to network access, malware prevention, business continuity and change management.

This is the second time Penta is shortlisted for the prestigious WealthBriefing Award. In November, Penta won the prestigious WealthBriefing GCC Award 2016 in the Technology Outsourcing Solution category for its geographic reach, a pipeline of innovative ideas and a clean bill of compliance health.

The winners of the WealthBriefing Swiss Awards will be announced at a gala event which will be held in Geneva on 9 February 2017 at the Hotel President Wilson.
