Date:6/18/2008

Certification Demonstrates Commitment to Securing Confidential Customer

Data for Health Care Technology Leader

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. and NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The TriZetto Group Inc., a leader in health care technology solutions serving nearly half of the insured population in the United States, announced Wednesday (June 18) that it has maintained the Verizon Business Security Management Program (SMP) Cybertrust Enterprise Certification.

By meeting the program's standards, TriZetto continues to uphold high levels of security, while mitigating risk and validating its processes for safeguarding the confidential health care data of more than 100 million health plan members. The company first earned the Cybertrust Certification in 2002.

The Security Management Program is designed to help businesses take a proactive approach to security by reducing risk across an entire organization. Working closely with customers, Verizon Business reviews information security measures and synergistically addresses a broad range of security needs, from network and system analysis to security policy inspection.

Of the more than 1,000 businesses and government agencies whose information security measures have been reviewed under the program, only about half received the Cybertrust Certification, which must be renewed annually.

The security certification demonstrates that TriZetto's information security controls for its hosting centers, where its full suite of health care software applications resides, have been examined, measured and validated against a stringent set of security standards designed to protect against malicious attacks and other cyber threats. Stringent security controls have been implemented at these facilities to help enable the secure flow of data between TriZetto's millions of health plan members and 30 leading health care payer organizations.

"By working closely with Verizon Business, TriZetto is communicating to its customers that the company is making information security a top priority, which is especially critical in the health care space," said Kerry Bailey, vice president of Verizon Business Security Solutions. "As the threat landscape evolves, organizations with critical data needs such as TriZetto must proactively address security requirements to protect the confidential data of their customers.

"At Verizon Business, we are committed to helping our customers develop and implement the security strategy that best meets their business needs and enables them to leverage existing people, processes and technologies," Bailey said.

Through Verizon Business' Security Management Program, TriZetto has enhanced security for its systems, networks and physical environment. The Cybertrust Certification demonstrates TriZetto's commitment to ongoing and consistent security assessments of the company's communications infrastructure as well as its external perimeter. This enables TriZetto to more effectively identify and prioritize security risks and then mitigate those risks. Potential risks include electronic threats and vulnerabilities, malicious code, privacy issues, human factors, physical environment and downtime.

"Our customers turn to us to host their software, in part because we are able to provide them peace of mind that their confidential data is better protected against even sophisticated attacks," said Gary Starling, TriZetto's chief security officer. "The Cybertrust Enterprise Certification provides a detailed assessment of our current security posture, which helps us identify potential vulnerabilities, strengthen controls and improve information protection."
