TextGuard Announces U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework Certification

Certification represents significant milestone in TextGuard’s international expansion

March 08, 2011, New York — TextGuard, the leading provider of mobile communication monitoring, archiving and management solutions, today announced it is now certified under the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework to allow the transfer of personal information between the United States and Europe, further supporting TextGuard’s expansion into Europe.
