TYSONS, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#cventCvent, a market leader in events and hospitality technology, announced today that the company has obtained its certification under the Cloud Security Alliance Security Trust Assurance and Risk (CSA STAR) Program. This serves as Cvent’s second major compliance achievement of 2019, after receiving its ISO 27001 Certification in April. CSA STAR Certification is obtained through a process of self and independent evaluation against a set of cloud security principles, the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM).

“The goal of our data and information security practices is to ensure ironclad cloud solutions, and these certifications and accreditations demonstrate our continued commitment to a secure customer experience across our entire platform,” said Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer of Cvent, Ben Mayrides.

As part of its CSA STAR certification, Cvent will also be listed on the CSA’s public registry, enabling customers to transparently assess the company as a security partner. Only those Cloud Service Providers who undergo and pass the CCM evaluations obtain a listing on the registry. As a result, Cvent can now publish information about the company’s security safeguards and practices that’s been validated by a trusted third party.

“This type of transparency and transitive trust promotes even more assurance by virtue that anyone – be it a customer, prospect, or stakeholder – can independently and efficiently evaluate Cvent’s security capabilities,” continued Mayrides. “As a market-leading technology provider with more than 27,000 customers around the world, it’s imperative that we offer the highest levels of data security and compliance. We’re proud to add this accreditation and enhanced level of transparency, which highlight our continued commitment to delivering world-class solutions and service.”

BENSALEM, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$DOMO–Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Domo, Inc. (“Domo” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: DOMO) investors concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.

In June 2018, Domo held its initial public offering (“IPO”), selling approximately 10.58 million shares of Class B common stock for $21 per share.

On September 5, 2019, Domo provided guidance for the third quarter and full fiscal year 2020, expecting only $168 million to $169 million revenue for the full year.

Then, on September 6, 2019, JMP Securities cut its Domo price target by $10.00 to $37.00, citing the “disappointing” report and guidance, weakness in Domo’s enterprise and international businesses, and billings growth that was about half of what was expected.

On this news, Domo’s stock price fell $9.44 per share, or over 37%, to close at $15.77 per share on September 6, 2019, thereby injuring investors. Since the IPO, the Company’s shares have traded as low as $15.77 per share, or 25% below the IPO price of $21.00.

If you purchased Domo securities, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
