Synomos Inc., the Montreal maker of the Align Data-Policy Provisioning Suite, yesterday released a free six-month evaluation copy of its Align 2.0 Policy Development Environment (PDE).

The Align 2.0 PDE desktop edition enables organizations to develop digital policy models, classify enterprise data assets, run what-if scenarios, and perform gap analysis for cost-effective compliance. It is available as a download at

"Achieving data-policy compliance across an organization's people, processes and systems is a daunting task," said Synomos president and CEO Austin Hill, in a prepared statement. "There are so many point solutions in the market that organizations are finding it difficult to evaluate compliance software. We recognize that organizations are currently struggling to mange and define data inventories and policies. Align 2.0 Policy Development Environment allows them to start immediately."

Align 2.0 PDE includes samples that demonstrate how to develop policy models for specific industries and regulations such as financial services, pharmaceuticals, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, and the EU Directive. All policy models developed with Align 2.0 PDE will be compatible with Align 3.0, enabling organizations to deploy their policies enterprise-wide in 2005.

Synomos is currently engaged in pilot programs with customers for Align 3.0 Data-Policy Provisioning Suite, which will be available later this year, according to the company.
