BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) -  EIBTM CONFERENCE

  • Certain Software Announces Partnership With Savvis for Certain Data Center in Europe
  • Certain Attains Safe Harbor Certification for Its Customers in Europe With Certification Validation From TRUSTe

Certain Software, the leading provider of event management solutions for the global meetings and events industry, today announced new offerings supporting their customers doing business in Europe. By partnering with Savvis, a global leader in cloud infrastructure, hosted IT solutions and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications for enterprises, Certain's solutions are now available in a data center near London for increased performance and support to customers running meetings and events in Europe. Separately, Certain Software has attained Safe Harbor Certification, meeting data privacy requirements for organizations adhering to the European Union (EU) Directive on Data Protection.

Certain Software cloud-based solutions now live locally in EMEA
By partnering with Savvis, Certain is now live in a top tier data center outside London to better serve clients in the EMEA region.

"By providing an expanded global data center presence, Certain is better able to provide low-latency, high-performance software environments for its global customer base," said Jonathan Dodson, chief information officer of Certain Software. "With expanded local access and greater scalability, Certain's customers' events -- some of which have tens of thousands of attendees -- can run more smoothly and easily for all members of the events ecosystem."

Certain Software is deploying its new offerings using the Savvis Symphony Dedicated private cloud computing solution, which allows enterprises to tailor and scale their dedicated infrastructure at their own pace and features enterprise-class levels of availability, security and connectivity.

"Savvis is excited to support Certain Software's expansion into Europe with a cloud infrastructure solution that delivers the security, flexibility and performance their customers have come to demand from them," said Larry Steele, technical vice president, SaaS at Savvis. "Software companies -- like Certain Software -- continue to turn to Savvis for enterprise-class SaaS infrastructure solutions that enable them to expand around the world and better serve their customers."

Certain Software's global cloud infrastructure utilizing Savvis solutions now extends to three continents -- North America, Europe and Asia -- providing local access for its global customer base.

TRUSTe EU Safe Harbor Privacy Program
"Certain has been providing events and meetings solutions to customers in the European Union for more than a decade," said Olivier Delerm, chief marketing officer of Certain Software. "By becoming TRUSTe-certified, Certain is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to privacy and security. Certain continues to strive for the strongest protections possible for information around our customers and their events participants and partners."

The TRUSTe Privacy Seal signifies that Certain's web site has posted a privacy statement and, moreover, that its web site information collection practices address the elements outlined in the Federal Trade Commission's Fair Information Practices, including notice and redress. By joining the TRUSTe EU Safe Harbor Privacy Seal program and fully complying with the license agreement, U.S. companies fulfill many of the requirements needed to self-certify to the Department of Commerce that they are safe harbor compliant and can continue to receive personal data from the EU without interruptions.
