Bitglass Named First CASB to Receive EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Certification From the U.S. Department of Commerce
Privacy Shield Certification Fortifies Company's Commitment to Data Protection and Privacy of Customers and Prospects in the U.S. and EU
CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 31, 2016) - Bitglass , the total data protection company, today announced that it is the first Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) to receive the European Union (EU)-U.S. Privacy Shield Certification from the United States Department of Commerce. Bitglass is one of the first 100 organizations certified under the voluntary program, furthering Bitglass' commitment to enhancing data protection and the privacy of its customers.
The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework was designed to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the EU to the U.S. in support of transatlantic commerce. It also gives EU citizens a mechanism for resolving privacy disputes through the Better Business Bureau and improves transparency with respect to the types of data U.S. organizations collect and how the data is used.
"With the invalidation of the Safe Harbor framework, EU citizens were concerned that their data would be subject to misuse and many EU-based organizations require compliance with EU data protection rules," said Nat Kausik, Bitglass CEO. "As Bitglass grows its presence in Europe, we believe it's essential to keep pace with the region's changing regulatory landscape and to be completely transparent with customers and prospects about the data we collect and how that information is used."
On July 12, 2016 the European Commission deemed the Privacy Shield Framework adequate to enable data transfers under EU law. Privacy Shield certifications will be enforced by the Federal Trade Commission in the U.S. and provides EU citizens access to U.S. courts for dispute resolution if deemed necessary. This is particularly valuable for those EU-based organizations that require U.S. vendors to be certified under Privacy Shield.
