MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron (NASDAQ: MOBL), the security backbone for modern computing, announced today that is has received certification approval by the US Department of Commerce to the new EU-US Privacy Shield Framework program.
The EU-US Privacy Framework was developed by the US Department of Commerce and the European Commission to provide a legal transfer mechanism for the transfer of personal data from the European Union to the United States. The framework also provides EU citizens greater transparency with respect to the personal data collected by US organizations as well as an enhanced mechanism for resolving privacy disputes.
"The EU-US Privacy Shield Framework gives us an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to honoring the privacy rights of EU citizens," said Laurel Finch, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer of MobileIron. "In light of the invalidation of the Safe Harbor last year, the adoption of the Privacy Shield Framework also provides a predictable and streamlined means for our European customers to comply with their obligations under EU data privacy law."
