ATLANTA, Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced that the company recently obtained Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) v3.2 certification and is included in the Visa Global Registry of Service Providers as an early adopter. Demonstrating compliance with the latest certification standards underscores Liaison's commitment to offer a single platform, ALLOY, that complies with major regulatory frameworks, including HIPAA, SSAE18/SOC 2, 21CFR part11 and Privacy Shield standards.
While many competitors offer platforms that comply with a single regulatory framework, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA or SOC 2, Liaison designed its ALLOYTM Platform to comply with multiple major frameworks, applying the most stringent standard in each set of rules to ensure that customers get maximum protection. This is an advantage for all customers who use ALLOY since their data gets the highest level of recommended protection. Even customers who aren't in regulated industries receive better protection from data breach incidents, which are on the rise worldwide.
"As ongoing security incidents like the recent Equifax data breach demonstrate, protecting sensitive information is not only important for legal and regulatory purposes, but also vital to maintaining trust in consumer and customer relationships," said Lance Pilkington, Vice President of Global Compliance at Liaison. "That's why Liaison's Trust program was designed with meeting or exceeding the latest industry standards and practices at all times."
The ability to meet multiple security standards is also important for companies that are subject to more than one compliance framework, such as healthcare organizations that handle medical information subject to HIPAA regulations and process payment transactions that must adhere to PCI DSS standards. Organizations that integrate and manage data on the ALLOY Platform are assured that their information is handled according to the most stringent guidelines in every case since Liaison goes beyond any single set of requirements from a compliance standpoint.
Another key differentiator for Liaison is that while many companies certify platforms, compliance is compromised when users and vendors overlay services on top of a compliant platform. Liaison maintains rigorous controls and audit regimens for both its ALLOY Platform and managed and professional services. Liaison is SOC 2 certified, meaning its services have been evaluated to ensure they meet security, availability, processing, confidentiality and privacy standards.
As Liaison expanded its operations globally, the compliance team integrated global standards into the ALLOY Platform so that customers can operate with confidence around the world. Currently, the team is engaged in General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) readiness planning to ensure that ALLOY meets the new European standards when they go into effect in May 2018. The company closely monitors multiple regulatory entities and maintains a master control list to ensure that protections are up to date.
Liaison's ALLOYTM Platform was built from the ground up to reduce data integration complexity, eliminate data silos and meet compliance standards on a single platform. By using the ALLOY Platform, organizations unlock the value of their data, gaining the insight they need to thrive and grow. Learn more at www.liaison.com.
