Date: December 19, 2016 2:00 PM EDT

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it has successfully completed the certification for ISO 27018. ISO 27018 is a standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) that establishes commonly accepted control objectives, controls, and guidelines that cloud service providers must implement to protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

"The privacy of our customers and their employees is a top priority," said Adam Rogers, chief technology officer at Ultimate. "Compliance with ISO 27018 means we are recognized for the sophisticated technologies and processes we use to handle PII. Since compliance requires annual certification, it is also a demonstration of our ongoing commitment to strong data-privacy practices."

To receive ISO 27018 certification, Ultimate established that customers retain full rights to access and delete their data, customer data is processed only for the purpose expressed by the customer, and Ultimate is transparent about where its customers' data is stored. In addition to completing ISO 27018 certification, Ultimate recently earned certification to the new EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation's (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system.
