The company named last week in a federal class-action lawsuit over UPMC's personal data breach said Monday that the medical provider isn't one of its clients.

“We are in the process of confirming the facts, but to our knowledge University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is not a customer of ours and we are not involved in their HR/payroll data,” said Darlene Marcroft, spokeswoman for the Ultimate Software Group Inc. of Weston, Fla.

Alice Patrick, a dialysis clinician at UPMC McKeesport, sued UPMC and Ultimate Software Group on Friday seeking 25 years of credit and bank monitoring, credit restoration services and identity theft insurance for the 27,000 employees whose data was compromised during a data breach discovered this year.

Her lawyers declined comment Monday on the company's response. A UPMC spokeswoman couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

The lawsuit claims that Ultimate Software Group and UPMC were negligent in safeguarding the employees' personal data. Marcroft said her company believes UPMC uses another provider for those services and that Ultimate Software was named in error.
