SMS Text News sponsor, Clickatell, has added some more hot shot chaps to the team.

They are Chuck Drake (who joins as Executive VP of Marketing) and Bill Wolfe (who joins as Executive VP of Research & Development).

Chuck joins from MarkMonitor and Corillian where he led both companies to achieve market leadership status in their respective Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Enterprise software markets serving Financial Services, Retail, Manufacturing, High Technology, CPG and other verticals worldwide. Here’s a pic of Chuck:

That’s not all the news though. They’ve recently added support for an additional 85 networks, enabling their 8,000+ customers to send messages to over 680+ networks worldwide — that’s more carriers and networks than any other messaging provider in the world.

For those companies concered about security, Clickatell recently received the SAS 70 stamp of approval (a widely recognised standard used as a proof point by Chief Security Officers to examine the due diligence process needed to assure data security, safety and integrity).

Only a licensed CPA firm can perform a SAS 70 audit. Chief Security Officers is not a licensed CPA firm in any state, and therefore, a Clickatell SAS 70 report issued by Chief Security Officers would be invalid. Not only that, it would constitute unlicensed practice of accounting by CSO, which is illegal in the United States. BEWARE of SAS 70 audit reports issued by unlicensed consulting companies as they are not valid and should not be relied upon for financial audit or SOX purposes.
