E-mail marketing giant Epsilon will build an industry-leading security system in response to a March 30 breach in which thieves gained access to the e-mail addresses and names of partner's customers, the CEO of Epsilon's parent company said Thursday.
Alliance Data Systems officials called their first quarter earnings "strong." Epsilon's revenue increased 23 percent to $156 million from the first quarter of 2010. The breach happened one day before the first quarter ended.
