A number of our customers have reached out to us in the last 48 hours asking about our position on the Cyber Intelligence Sharing Protection Act (CISPA). We have deep resevations about legislation that seeks to limit privacy protections currently available to our customers. As a service provider the trust we have earned with our customers is of paramount importance and fundamental to their success and ours.
We view it as our duty to protect our customer's data and their rights regarding that data. As we have educated ourselves on certain provisions of CISPA, we have grown concerned that our customer's rights would be undermined by the elimination of judicial oversight governing the disclosure of information. As such our official statement is that we do not support CISPA.
