Whistleblower Software Raises a €15M Investment & Launches “Formalize”

From whistleblowing to compliance operations - Our new platform automates compliance operations across various regulations, ensuring efficiency and reliability every step of the way.

Our mission has always been to enable companies to spend less time on compliance and derive greater value from it. As we expand our support to customers and partners beyond whistleblowing – our company name transitions from Whistleblower Software to Formalize. This change is more than just a new name; it's a symbol of our commitment to propelling the industry forward.

Our journey as Whistleblower Software

Whistleblower Software has long been the preferred choice by many compliance professionals, recognized as the market-leading solution by G2, and available to 5.000.000+ employees worldwide spanning top law firms, compliance consultants, and companies of all sizes. Our system offers a secure, user-friendly, and safe reporting space.

Moving forward, Whistleblower Software will operate under the name Whistleblower Software by Formalize and will remain an integral part of our identity and vision. We remain committed to enhancing the software, as usual, to deliver the finest whistleblower system available.

Formalize is an intuitive yet comprehensive compliance operations platform designed to streamline compliance workflows and automate processes for a variety of frameworks and regulations, including NIS2, DORA, ISO27001, and more.

Throughout 2023 we have witnessed steady growth of the platform, with great feedback from our customers, and we are now prepared for the public launch.

The platform is specifically designed to connect the dots across compliance frameworks and regulations. You can expect a next-generation platform with seamless integration of compliance-related processes, tailored to meet your organization's unique requirements.

Formalize is designed to be intuitive, user-friendly, and highly customizable, providing the ideal foundation for optimal compliance operations.

Due to the increased compliance regulations from the EU, the standard approach to compliance is no longer sustainable. By automating large parts of the compliance processes, Formalize can help companies ease the work without compromising security and the ability to customize the platform to the company's specific needs.
