SEIU Local 36 Selects GlobalCerts and Connectivity Systems to Comply with HIPAA Regulations and Secure Protected Health Information (PHI)

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. --(Business Wire)-- Dec. 9, 2005 -- -GlobalCerts, a leading provider of secure messaging appliance solutions, announced today that SEIU Local 36 Benefit Fund has deployed the GlobalCerts SecureMail Gateway(TM). SEIU Local 36 Benefit Fund will use SecureMail Gateway(TM) to provide seamless email encryption services to benefit consultants and employees who need to email sensitive data to insurance carriers and union members.

SEIU Local 36 Benefit Fund is located in Philadelphia, PA and along with the union provides a wide variety of benefits and services to approximately 5000 union members in PA, NJ and DE. In many cases, the Benefit Fund provides union members with services similar to a Human Resources department. Mark Ranieri, the IT Director at SEIU Local 36 Benefit Fund, realized that he had a HIPAA Security Rule compliance requirement to protect email messages that contained Private Health Information (PHI).

Mark began his secure messaging search by calling Ben Minardi of Connectivity Systems, Inc. (CSI). CSI provides Internet security solutions and network consulting services and had assisted SEIU Local 36 Benefit Fund with their perimeter security. "Mark had a number of requirements that needed to be met," according to Ben. "The solution needed to be easy to use, network based, quickly deployed, easy to manage and reasonably priced. The SecureMail Gateway(TM) met all of these requirements."

"It was important to not put any additional burden on our IT staff, our users or our partners that would be receiving these secure email messages," said Mark. "The SecureMail Gateway(TM) is great. It did not require us to install any software on our PCs, our users continue to use their standard email client and all that our partners need to receive a secure message from us is an email address, a web browser and an Internet connection."
