Ottawa, Canada, February 04, 2019 – CaseWare RCM Inc, a division of CaseWare International Inc., is pleased to announce that it has renamed its flagship product for AML compliance, fraud detection and prevention, continuous controls monitoring (CCM) and procurement monitoring from CaseWare Monitor to Alessa.
Alessa, meaning noble defender, is a continuous controls and financial crimes risk management solution that allows organizations to quickly identify suspicious activities and high-risk entities in compliance, finance, purchasing and procurement programs.

Alessa is already trusted by banks, credit unions, Fintechs, insurance, gaming, manufacturing and retail companies in over 20 countries to prevent money laundering, breaches in internal controls, purchase card (p-card) abuse, travel and entertainment (T&E) expenses fraud, and insurance fraud. Alessa is also used for sanctions screening of clients, transaction monitoring, retail store monitoring and taxation reporting and customs compliance.

Alessa also offers depth in functionality ̶ allowing organizations to use one solution for all their continuous controls monitoring, compliance and fraud prevention needs.
For example, as an AML solution Alessa offers customer due diligence, sanctions screening, transaction monitoring and automated regulatory reporting for various jurisdictions.
