SS&C Technologies Finalizes PCI-DSS and EI3PA Security Assessments
Oct 24, 2014

WINDSOR, Conn., Oct. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:SSNC), a global provider of financial services software and software-enabled services, today announced that it has successfully completed its Experian Independent Third Party Assessment (EI3PA) certification utilizing the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) Framework. These technical and operational assessments are designed to help protect consumer information.

"Staying on top of security is a high priority for us," said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. "Our team conducts numerous internal and external assessments and audits to ensure the security of data as part of an ongoing commitment to our customers."

Financial services organizations throughout the U.S. rely on SS&C's software products for automating the process of conducting background checks, employment screenings, tenant screenings and more.

EI3PA certification is critical to Moco Incorporated, a long-term SS&C customer. Paul Prudente, Vice President, Moco Incorporated said, "Clearly, those who as part of their business collect, process and store sensitive personal information have a duty to protect that information - to put in place the infrastructure, policies, procedures and controls necessary to minimize the risk of a data breach. SS&C's cloud-based technology is mission critical for our firm. Their achievement of EI3PA Level 1 certification is testimony to their commitment to our competitiveness, growth and profitability going forward."

The PCI-DSS is a comprehensive standard to help organizations proactively protect customer account data. Auditors validate that all 232+ management, operational and technical controls including sampling, evaluating and verification within the PCI-DSS standard to properly mitigate risks to the SS&C organization.

The EI3PA certification is an annual assessment of an Experian reseller's ability to protect the information they purchase from Experian. This requires an evaluation of information security by an independent assessor, based on requirements provided by Experian. These requirements have been adapted from PCI-DSS.

EXPERIAN MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, OR GUARANTEES WITH RESPECT TO ANY SYSTEMS OR INFORMATION SECURITY PROGRAMS INCLUDED IN ANY EXPERIAN INDEPENDENT 3RD PARTY ASSESSMENT, AND EXPERIAN SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR THE SECURITY OR PERFORMANCE OF ANY SUCH SYSTEMS OR PROGRAMS, OR FOR ANY MATTERS RELATED THERETO.
