About the company

CIMCON Software helps companies minimize the business risks inherent in end-user computing applications (EUCs). These end user controlled applications include but are not limited to models, spreadsheets, Access databases, VBScript, R, Tableau analytics and more.

We enable our users to uncover material errors in models and Excel spreadsheets, find broken links and other issues impacting data integrity, detect the presence of sensitive information (PII, PHI, PCI) and further protect it from data loss.  Our software systematically identifies the location and magnitude of these risks and provides tools to mitigate them in a way consistent with your company's risk management policy. Putting some controls on the end user computing domain can be done seamlessly without creating an additional burden or constraint on the end users themselves.

Headquartered in Boston for over twenty years and with offices in New York, London, and Asia, CIMCON Software's installed client base includes close to 500 companies globally, across a variety of industries.
