Noble Systems Receives 2014 Product of the Year Award for Patented TCPA Compliance Solutions


Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 15, 2014

Noble Systems Corporation, a global leader in unified contact center technology solutions, has received a 2014 Product of the Year Award from TMC, a global, integrated media company. The Award recognizes the Noble TCPA Wireless Compliance Solution. Nobles TCPA Compliance technologies are crucial in complying with regulatory guidelines in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) which prohibit automated calls to wireless phone numbers.

Nobles patented TCPA Wireless Compliance solution combines the best capabilities of its manual dialing features with its best-in-class compliance management capabilities to help companies safeguard the customer contact operations. Contact centers can identify wireless numbers and automatically remove them from an automated dialing queue, forcing them to be dialed manually via a PBX. The solution also allows contact centers to implement compliance management safeguards that block non-compliant manual call attempts, screening each record against a user-configured set of compliance criteria to determine whether a call is allowed.

Chris Hodges, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing Noble Systems, says, Compliance is a huge hot button in todays business world, and affects virtually any organization that is managing communications with its customers. Noble Systems innovative TCPA Compliance solution allows companies to directly address the new regulations, so that they can maintain compliant business practices and avoid penalties.

Congratulations to Noble Systems for receiving a 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award, said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.

Hacktivism the use of legal and/or illegal digital tools and techniques in the pursuit of political or social ends is a growing threat to the wide variety of businesses involved in the processing of electronic payments. Reich, a well-known risk management and security expert in the hosting market, will help conference attendees understand who hacktivists are, what motivates them, what they try to do, and how companies can reduce their risks of falling victim to hacktivism. Reich will also show how hacktivism is not a narrow internet security issue but rather a broader threat to businesses and their reputations.

Hacktivism is a relatively new threat to payment processors, and one thats rapidly growing, said Reich. I look forward to sharing what weve learned at Layered Tech about how to recognize, prepare for, and mitigate this very real security risk.

FISMA Compliance Guarantee Now Available to U.S. Federal Agencies and Contractors


Plano, TX (PRWEB) January 29, 2013

FISMA compliance for U.S. federal agencies and their contractors is now simpler and more certain with managed hosting leader Layered Techs announcement of a FISMA compliance guarantee. Layered Tech is offering a FISMA compliance guarantee to federal agencies and SaaS providers who utilize Layered Techs Platform-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, or compliant managed hosting services.

A year ago Layered Tech offered a compliance guarantee as part of its managed hosting services for PCI-DSS (credit card data) and HIPAA (healthcare data). Since then, and throughout its history, Layered Techs compliant hosting customers have passed 100 percent of every compliance audit. Layered Tech is now extending the compliance guarantee to the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), which requires that federal agencies meet stringent data security requirements for IT services that they utilize.

With its FISMA-compliant Cloud and hosting services, Layered Tech delivers secure managed IT platforms on behalf of federal agencies or SaaS providers who sell to federal agencies. Layered Techs FISMA compliance guarantee, which is included free of charge as part of the FISMA-compliant hosting service, ensures clients that their hosted IT infrastructures will pass the FISMA certification and accreditation audit, as well as the mandated annual evaluations.

Especially since the initiation of the federal Cloud First program, there is strong demand for FISMA-compliant platforms and services, said Dan Tudahl, Layered Tech Government Solutions Chief Operating Officer. With our secure data centers, experienced staff and 100% FISMA compliance guarantee, we give SaaS vendors and their federal agency customers complete peace of mind so they can focus on their core missions.

Layered Tech has more than a decade of experience building and hosting secure solutions that comply with FISMA and the implementation standards mandated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Layered Tech currently provides FISMA compliant managed hosting services as well as cloud hosting services for over half of the cabinet-level federal agencies, including some of the most security-sensitive federal agencies such as the Departments of Justice, Energy, and Treasury. In conjunction with Microsoft, Layered Tech recently launched the Microsoft Dynamics Government Cloud, a FISMA-compliant Platform-as-a-Service cloud offering tailored specifically to the high security requirements of federal government enterprise applications.

PCI Compliance Leaders Team Up to Deliver Industrys First End-to-End Solution


Plano, TX (PRWEB) February 13, 2013

PCI compliance for merchants is now simpler and less costly with the recent launch of an innovative cloud-based solution for securely accepting and transmitting payment card information during online purchase transactions. Layered Tech, a global provider of secure and compliant managed hosting and cloud services, and PayPlum, a creator of products and services to protect and secure sensitive consumer data, have joined forces to implement a genuinely end-to-end solution that enables merchants to securely and compliantly accept sensitive cardholder data while still delivering a high quality branded online experience.

Unlike conventional PCI compliance solutions, PayPlums patent pending payment acceptance software safeguards cardholder data from the very beginning of an online payment transaction: the serving of the card data input form. Rather than the merchant delivering blank payment forms from its own servers and bearing the risks of those forms being hacked, in the PayPlum solution the merchant serves only the non-sensitive, branded parts of the payment page while the card data input form itself is simultaneously served from PayPlums secure PCI-compliant private cloud.

In addition to managing all the security and compliance challenges of serving payment forms and accepting sensitive data, the PayPlum Enterprise PCI cloud also implements the secure transfer of transaction data to the merchants chosen payment gateway. In this solution sensitive cardholder data never touches the merchants servers, payments forms, or network, thereby taking them completely out of the scope of PCI compliance and dramatically reducing the associated costs and risks.

Layered Tech hosts the PayPlum private cloud in its PCI-compliant data centers and provides comprehensive management of the cloud to ensure continuous 100% compliance with PCI DSS requirements. As a long-time leader in PCI-compliant hosting and cloud services, Layered Tech was the logical choice to host and manage PayPlums groundbreaking compliance solution.

Security and compliance are the two most important needs we have today, said PayPlum Co-Founder and CEO Greg McGraw. Layered Techs versatile private cloud offerings, managed compliance services, and commitment to securing data in the most comprehensive and cost-effective way for business clients made them the clear choice for hosting the PayPlum Enterprise PCI compliance cloud.

Were excited to be part of this innovative solution to the daunting security and compliance issues faced by todays merchants, said Nate Brancato, Layered Techs Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. With the PayPlum solution powered by Layered Tech, merchants can completely offload the PCI compliance burden for online payment acceptance, freeing them to focus on delivering great products and services.

InTown Suites, the leader in extended stay living, is one of the first merchants to benefit from the new PCI compliance solution from PayPlum and Layered Tech. Online payment is an important amenity for our guests, said InTown Suites CIO Stephen Bell. However, developing the systems required to ensure PCI compliance is not feasible internally. The solution provided by PayPlum and Layered Tech will help us implement online payment quickly and efficiently, and guarantee that our payment processing meets PCI requirements.
