Xirrus Demonstrates Commitment to Safe Data-Handling Practices With Safe Harbor Self-Certification

Xirrus Is First W-Fi Provider to Assure International Customers and Partners With Policies, Procedures and Training That Safeguard Personal Data

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 27, 2015) - Xirrus, the leading provider of high-performance wireless networks, is committed to protecting personal data with its Safe Harbor self-certification in compliance with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework. As the only dedicated Wi-Fi provider that is listed on the Department of Commerce website to achieve Safe Harbor self-certification, Xirrus abides by the Safe Harbor principles regarding the collection, storage, use, transfer and other processing of personal data transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland to the United States.

"The safe-handling of personal data is a vital concern for our international customers and Xirrus is committed to protecting our users' data," said Bruce Miller, VP of product marketing at Xirrus. "As the first dedicated high-performance Wi-Fi vendor to achieve this level of compliance, we can confidently provide our customers with the assurance that Xirrus and our key partners have policies, procedures and training in place to safeguard personal data."
