MegaNet Communications has announced the launch of their new 20117 Ready initiative today. This initiative is designed to help educate businesses about the new Massachusetts State Law 201 CMR 17 and provide a suite of customer services compliant with the new law.
“Almost all of our business customers have clients who are in Massachusetts,” said James Smith, VP of Marketing for MegaNet Communications. “The new Massachusetts data security law states that any business that keeps specific identifying information about customers located in Massachusetts be protected by a series of directives. Our goal is to help businesses understand how to keep their data safe from Internet-based intrusion, as well as helping set internal security guidelines.”
Recent high-profile cases involving data theft in Massachusetts has helped to spur action to ensure personally identifying data is kept safe. With today’s corporate environments comprised of high speed Internet connections used daily to share and access customer data, it’s vitally important that businesses protect themselves, and their customer’s private information.
MegaNet’s 20117 Ready initiative is designed to help provide information to businesses on services that can not only help them remain compliant with the new law, but also increase business productivity. Services like managed VPN and firewall, encrypted email, and secure offsite data backup will allow for the highest level of data security and also help improve day to day Internet usage and employee productivity.
“It’s important to stay vigilant when it comes to data security, as well as using the Internet to it’s fullest to improve daily workflow,” continued Mr. Smith. “Our goal is to provide complete and affordable compliance for Massachusetts businesses.”
