SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/31/12 -- Varolii Corporation, a market leader in customer interaction management, has achieved its annual recertification of Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Specification (PCI DSS) compliance. The rigorous third party auditing that supports PCI DSS certification provides evidence that Varolii has the right security policy, processes and controls in place to protect customer credit cardholder data.
With this annual recertification, Varolii maintains its standing as the first and only U.S. company in Software-as-a-Service customer interaction management industry to meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Specification (PCI DSS), ISO 27001 certification, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) compliance.
Fortune 1000 companies, including two of the three largest U.S. banks, three of the five largest health management companies, five of the top 10 airlines and 30 of the largest U.S. utilities, rely on Varolii to generate nearly one billion interactive, secure communications each year. Of these, more than half include sensitive healthcare or financial data. In fact, on a typical day Varolii communicates with consumers regarding payments totaling more than $12 billion in accounts receivable.
To protect this sensitive company and consumer information, Varolii has also developed a five-layer security strategy that incorporates the various touch points sensitive data may pass through while going from consumer to company, and then back again. The individual layers include privacy protection, network security, facility security, corporate data security and personal data security.
"As a trusted cloud-based solutions provider, it is crucial that we continually strive for the highest level of standards when it comes to safeguarding sensitive company and personal information," said Will Longman, Chief Security Officer at Varolii. "Attaining this annual re-certification is an important step to show that businesses can continue to count on Varolii to help secure both client and consumer information."
