While I normally try to stay pretty focused on SEC filings, I found the irony here too difficult to ignore. Sun Microsystems (SUNW) CEO Scott McNealy has been one of the most persistent critics of Sarbanes-Oxley, telling USA Today back in October 2003 that the law was akin to throwing “buckets of sand into the gears of the market economy.” But earlier this week, the company that McNealy runs introduced new software designed to help companies dealing with some of the compliance issues associated with SOX. The software, called Sun Java System Identity Auditor, starts at $250,000 a pop, which kind of makes McNealy’s whining over SOX ring a wee bit hollow.
