Discover a New Level of Data Security for Unified Communications

Data Security is defined as protecting data and data infrastructure from unauthorized access for malicious purposes. The news is full of reports of data breaches at organizations ranging from top retailers, hospitals, government municipalities as well as global Fortune 500 companies. As a result, data security is more than a hot topic, it is a real concern for all IT managers across all industries.

This concern is top of mind at 8x8 where we have built our products around a set of data security requirements that meet and exceed those required by top security-focused agencies throughout most industries and governments.

Security Compliance Milestones

No other VoIP or contact center provider does more to safeguard the security and compliance of mission-critical communications than 8x8. Our 8x8 Virtual Office and Contact Center solutions are certified as compliant with standards including:


HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is the primary data protection required for the use and storage of personal data throughout the US healthcare industry. 8x8 goes to great lengths to maintain this area of compliance using approved third-party certification to ensure that 8x8 product meets or exceed HIPAA data security levels.


FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) requires closer monitoring of federal agencies, state agencies, and private businesses when it comes to the security of sensitive federal data. As a result, organizations have to implement certain security controls and maintain documentation of how those controls are kept and updated. 8x8 goes to great lengths to maintain compliance by using approved third-party certification to ensure that 8x8 product meets or exceed FISMA data security at the moderate level.
