Global Connect System Offers Enhanced Security and Compliance

The voice messaging and notification services provider announces its SysTrust certification renewal, as well as features to help clients comply with federal, state and local regulations.

Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Media Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor MAYS LANDING, NEW JERSEY, PRESS RELEASE--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2008) - Global Connect, the leading provider of voice messaging and notification services, announced the availability of features designed to help clients comply with federal, state and local calling regulations and restrictions. These features, as well as the company's renewal of its SysTrust certification, assure clients that the data they use for Global Connect messaging campaigns is secure, and that campaigns they conduct using Global Connect comply with applicable regulations.

"A fast messaging system is not valuable if the clients' data is compromised, or if their campaigns do not comply with calling restrictions," said Craig Bird, Chief Executive Officer of Global Connect. "As a result, we are continually examining and improving controls to ensure the reliability, security and compliance of the Global Connect system."

The compliance features available to clients of Global Connect include:

Time Zone - The Global Connect system allows clients to account for time zone differences within their lists of contacts. As a result, clients can easily comply with local, state and federal calling restrictions when conducting voice messaging campaigns by calling at the appropriate time of day for each contact's particular time zone.

Call Scrubbing - From removing contacts on the "Do Not Call" list to ensuring automatically that contacts are contacted only as often as their local or state regulations allow, Global Connect makes it easy for clients to comply with all applicable call restrictions.

In addition to the availability of these compliance features, Global Connect announced that the company has renewed its SysTrust certification and once again earned the SysTrust seal sponsored by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The company's data centers in both the United States and Canada were reviewed and certified.

The SysTrust seal attests that Global Connect's systems and practices have been verified to be operating reliably with regard to information security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality. As a result of the SysTrust certification, Global Connect is entitled to display the SysTrust logo on its web site. Visitors can click on the logo to review the independent certification report.
