Customers Benefit From Global Connect's Canadian Data Center

The stand-alone data center in Toronto, Canada, offers customers data security and privacy.

Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor MAYS LANDING, NJ, VOICE MESSAGING--(Marketwire - May 27, 2009) - For years, Global Connect has been offering a fast, simple, effective way to deliver messages to thousands of contacts within minutes, and the company continues to offer Canadian customers an additional benefit: the security and privacy of a Canadian data center. Since Global Connect opened its Toronto data center in January, 2008, voice messaging clients in the Canadian market have jumped at the chance to use this secure, all-Canada storage and networking platform, which improves their ability to comply with Canadian data privacy laws.

"As a result of 'Do Not Call' legislation, there are some numbers that we're not permitted to call, and the ability to comply with this and other Canadian regulations was an extremely important factor in the selection of our voice messaging vendor," explained the Vice President of a Canadian third party account receivable management solutions company. "The ability to 'scrub' numbers easily, as well as the fact that all of our calls are launched in Canada through a stand-alone Canadian data center, helps us comply with any and all call regulations."

Not only does the Toronto data center make it easy to comply with Canadian call regulations, but it also offers Global Connect customers enhanced security. An independent consultancy group has audited the Global Connect site and reviewed the company's policies, procedures and security to ensure that information in the data center is safe and secure.

"Global Connect prides itself on its commitment to quality, to service and to security," said Darrin Bird, Executive Vice President of Global Connect. "Opening a Canadian data center was a natural step in the evolution of our company, and based on the response we've received from Canadian clients and prospects, it's been a great success."
