Phunware Inc (NASDAQ:PHUN), an enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands, said Friday that it is now TRUSTe certified which recognizes the group's strong global compliance and privacy policies.
In a statement, Austin, Texas-based Phunware said the group “successfully met” the stringent data collection TRUSTe certification standards stipulated by TrustArc, a non-profit industry association that helps businesses and organizations regulate global privacy concerns.
“An independent third-party review and certification from TrustArc for TRUSTe attestation demonstrates privacy compliance and a high commitment globally to following data collection best practices,” the company said in a statement.
“Phunware’s MaaS platform was designed to operate at scale, managing critical data collection for large enterprises while easily managing more than one billion monthly active devices across more than a petabyte of data,” said Phunware co-founder and CTO Luan Dang.
“Privacy and responsible data collection are crucial to our ability to effectively support not only Fortune 1000 customers with strict security guidelines and healthcare customers governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, but also organizations that operate in high profile operating environments such as American Made Media Consultants, who we worked with closely to recently deploy the game-changing Trump-Pence 2020 mobile application portfolio,” he added.
Phunware is at the forefront of data-enriched digital transformation on mobile. By licensing the company’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform, leading brands are able to develop mobile ecosystems designed for engagement, but with privacy and security in mind.
Founded in 1997, TrustArc is an industry leader in privacy management that ensures companies comply with worldwide government laws and best practices, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
