Kenexa Earns Prestigious Verizon Business Security Certification, for Eighth Consecutive Year


Designation Underscores Company’s Commitment to Secure Global Operations

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. and WAYNE, Pa. - Kenexa, a leading global provider of business solutions for human resources, has earned the coveted Verizon Cybertrust Security Management Program Certification, for the eighth consecutive year.

“Kenexa has once again demonstrated an outstanding commitment to information security by earning the Verizon Cybertrust Certification,” said Dr. Peter Tippett, vice president of security solutions and enterprise innovation, Verizon Business. “Kenexa’s track record shows its customers, partners and vendors that it places the highest importance on being a safe company with which to do business.”

The Security Management Program (SMP) is a comprehensive security assessment and certification program that validates an organization’s security posture. The SMP helps customers like Kenexa prioritize and identify security risks in an on-going manner, and then proactively manage threats before they have an impact.

Kenexa has earned an enterprise certification, the most stringent level of certification offered by Verizon. It provides assurance that Kenexa has met or exceeded requirements in five important control areas: policy, human, physical, device and network. As part of its certification testing, Verizon Business examined, measured and validated Kenexa’s controls against the internationally recognized ISO 27002 standard.

Specifically, the certification demonstrates that Kenexa has properly documented and implemented information security policies, controls and standards; mitigated vulnerabilities on critical systems; addressed wireless and mobile device security; and put into place current e-mail filtering, anti-virus and authentication solutions.

Kenexa benefits from the most current version of the SMP, which is enhanced by a new risk- and compliance-management console for data synthesis. New features include ISO 27002 control validation and status reports, enhanced security control mappings and an updated compliance scorecard. With these enhancements, the console puts user-friendly analysis and reporting capabilities right at customers’ fingertips, enabling customers to better manage their security, risk and compliance posture.

The SMP is part of Verizon Business’ robust portfolio of security solutions, aimed at helping enterprises and government agencies manage security risk and protect critical company assets. More information is available by visiting
