Solution Ensures a Secure Testing Environment Utilizing Candidates Own Computers for Both Online Assignments and Test Center Exams

CAMBRIDGE, MA–(Marketwire – January 14, 2009) – Software Secure, Inc. announced today that they have partnered with The Society of Management Accountants of Canada (CMA Canada) to deliver key Strategic Leadership Program (SLP) assignments and the Case Examination to CMA candidates online.

By using Software Secure’s Securexam® software, CMA candidates will be able to complete several assignments and the Case Examination in a secure online exam environment. Candidates will be prevented from accessing other applications such as Internet, email, instant messaging or other software while completing these components of the Strategic Leadership Program online.

“We’ve been through a thorough search for a solution that will meet our needs of ease of use, proven success in the marketplace and top-notch security. We looked at other solutions, but none came close to providing the total solution that Securexam software delivers,” said Richard Benn, Executive Vice-President, Member Development, CMA Canada.

The Securexam technology is being used throughout the world both in standard educational institutions and by professional testing organizations. “We are confident that our move to computer-based testing in the SLP will be successful and offer our candidates an easy to use exam process while still maintaining the integrity required for such an important professional examination,” said Benn.

“We were excited for the opportunity to bring the efficiencies, convenience and comfort of computing to CMA Canada,” said Douglas Winneg, President and founder of Software Secure. “We are looking forward to continuing to work with CMA Canada to responsibly incorporate other important computing functions into the examination process,” said Winneg.

The Strategic Leadership Program shapes CMAs as strategic financial management professionals to lead successful enterprises.
