AUSTIN, TEXAS and BOULDER, COLORADO (PRWEB) April 7, 2006 -–
Vincera, Inc., the business process improvement company whose software yields predictive analytics, behavioral monitoring, and information distribution technology, today announced from the NAPBS conference in Nashville, TN, its first client in the background screening industry, Background Information Services, Inc., of Colorado (BIS). Founded in 1987, BIS is a nationwide public records provider specializing in pre-employment, tenant, and drug screening services for clients including HR departments for companies of all sizes. As a Vincera client, BIS purchased Vincera's VAM! Intelligent Protection™ product to protect, monitor, and manage e-distributed content that contains sensitive information such as personally identifiable information (PII).
Dave Malmstedt, CEO of Vincera said, "Background screeners must pass PII outside their firewall in order to serve their customers, yet the screeners are legally culpable for what happens to that information once it has passed beyond the firewall. Unfortunately, most current security solutions only protect sensitive information within a corporate firewall while leaving the information open to alteration, theft, and illicit distribution once it has left the known universe of users. We are proud to serve BIS Colorado and enhance their value to their clients by providing our VAM! Intelligent Protection product, which extends the features of digital rights management beyond the background screeners' corporate firewall by allowing BIS to track and manage access to all sensitive data they e-distribute."
VAM! Intelligent Protection™ (VIP) is an information distribution technology that greatly reduces the risk of security breaches inherent in the e-distribution and storage of sensitive data by enabling background screeners to set business-driven rules to secure, track and manage the distribution of content that contains PII. With VIP, the background screener can easily customize distribution according to the desired business rules of their customers. For instance, a background screener or an HR department may decide to track how the documents containing sensitive information are being distributed, and track the number of machines that the document is being accessed by (potentially identifying a “breached” document); or, with the click of a button, the VIP customer can protect sensitive information from being indefinitely available by setting expiration rules thereby ensuring document destruction meets legislative and business requirements and simultaneously preventing the further distribution of such data.
Marc Milligan, CEO of BIS Colorado concluded, "Vincera's Intelligent Protection software allows us to encrypt, track, and manage access to the consolidated background check reports we distribute to our HR and other clients. As the legal and ethical issues mushroom surrounding PII protection, BIS is proud to be at the forefront of protecting PII in a comprehensive fashion that benefits all our clients. We view this software as extending our ability to meet our clients' needs, wherever the sensitive data travels, rather than only within our corporate firewall."
