Customers of MobileGuard and Verizon Wireless will now be eligible to receive a single, integrated bill for both their monthly wireless service as well as MobileGuard’s suite of mobile compliance solutions.

“Verizon is known globally as one of the most trusted service providers for enterprise organizations in a number of highly regulated sectors and industries, particularly financial services and government. As these organizations continue to adopt text, SMS and MMS messaging as a central form of inter-personnel communications, it is critical that they have access to the best solutions to comply with necessary regulatory frameworks,” said Todd M.
