MCLEAN, Virginia, July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN), a global provider of cloud-based security solutions, today announced that CYREN received the TRUSTe Cloud Data Privacy Certification as well as EU and Swiss Safe Harbor Certifications recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
CYREN now displays the TRUSTe Certified Privacy Seal on www.cyren.com and CYREN's WebSecurity and EmailSecurity platforms. These certifications underscore a long history of strong privacy practices and further validate CYREN's commitment to continual innovation and customer peace of mind.
Based upon a foundation of transparency, choice and accountability regarding the collection and use of personal information, the TRUSTe Privacy Seal is recognized by millions of consumers as a sign of trust and demonstrates privacy best practices for personal data protection.
TRUSTe certification ensures that both a company's website and the service platform are compliant with the U.S.-EU and Swiss Safe Harbor frameworks. The TRUSTe Cloud Data Privacy certification follows a comprehensive and proven multi-step process to ensure privacy practices meet applicable regulatory and industry standards.
"We are committed to maintaining the highest levels of privacy for our partners and end users that rely on CYREN technology for protection against the latest web threats," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN. "As our most recent example, powerful data privacy measures were built into CYREN WebSecurity, the first Security as a Service (SecaaS) offering launched on our robust and scalable cloud infrastructure. CYREN's TRUSTe certification illustrates the transparency of our robust data privacy practices."
"Given the abundance of consumer privacy concerns it's no surprise that 74 percent of U.S. Internet users are more likely to check websites and apps for a privacy certification or seal," said TRUSTe CEO Chris Babel.
