Pentana overview

What is Pentana?

Pentana is an audit automation system designed to be used by internal audit departments for risk-based audits. Included are tools for control management, analysis and summarization of risk assessments, automated and historic reporting, defining terminology, audit planning and execution, action tracking, and more.

Pentana covers the full audit cycle, from the planning and scheduling stage through controls testing and detailed risk assessment, to reporting findings and tracking actions. Users can define the structure of their organization across multiple levels, and associate auditable entities with specific processes. A built-in library of standard risks and controls can then be accessed for each audit based on the associated processes. Audits and reviews providing optimal risk coverage can be determined through the analysis and summarization of risk assessments.

Pentana allows managers to review work they have delegated to team members, actions can be tracked through the browser interface, and dashboards give senior management and audit committees an overview of audit progress and the status of any outstanding actions. Data can be mined and analyzed in real time, and users can access transactional data, produce random samples to be tested, and identify atypical items for further investigation. Data can be reported on in a variety of formats, and reports can also be generated automatically.
