Veramark Announces HIPAA Security Compliance for VeraSMART 10.3 Software

Continued Focus on Privacy and Security Increases Compliance and Reduces Risk for Health Care Industry

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - Veramark Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: VERA) (PINKSHEETS: VERA), a leading provider of Telecom Expense Management (TEM) solutions, today announced that its VeraSMART® premise-deployed solutions comply with the Final HIPAA Security Rule, confirming compliance with relevant Federal Regulations and reducing risk for companies in the health care industry.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) provides key guidelines for privacy and security for health care providers and other entities related to the health care industry.

"Communications is one of the most critical business functions. Veramark provides solutions that companies need for efficiently managing communications reporting and expenses. Our customers across every industry are increasingly citing security and privacy among their top critical business concerns," said Tony Mazzullo, Veramark's CEO and President. "In November 2011, we met the SSAE 16 (formerly SAS70) accreditation for the organization, demonstrating established controls (policies and procedures). Our growing set of security and privacy certifications and evaluations demonstrates our commitment to meeting those security and privacy needs for Call Accounting, Wireless Call Accounting, and Telecom Expense Management."

An independent security testing firm evaluated the VeraSMART application for HIPAA compliance and verified that it meets the criteria for pertinent technical mechanisms for software applications. The evaluation determined that other areas of the VeraSMART life cycle also meet the Administrative Safeguards requirements.

"Establishing HIPAA Security Compliance gives our customers in the health care and related industries yet another reason to trust Veramark to deliver solutions that meet key business operational reporting and expense management needs without becoming a headache or distraction," said Mazzullo.

Veramark customers can request that their VeraSMART 10.3 upgrade include the HIPAA-compliant license at no incremental charge to the base software licenses.
