Projectplace Receives Security ISO CertificationApr 03, 2012 08:05 BST
The international standard ISO 27001 guarantees information security and brings further business value to Projectplace’s customers.
Projectplace, the European leader in online project collaboration, today announced that it has received the ISO 27001 certification for information security. This certificate guarantees that Projectplace has a well-established information security structure for the development and operation of its service.
ISO27001 is the international standard that certifies a high level of information security, including proactive management as well as the evaluation and addressing of risks.
SaaS companies and cloud technologies have been scrutinized since the first startups in these fields emerged. The clients entrust important business data to a third party, and because of this information security is a top priority for Projectplace.
”The way we handle information is very important to our clients”, said Walter Werner, Chief Information Security Officer at Projectplace. “When we talk to new clients, the subject of information security is always one of the first questions to come up. Most of the concerns are covered by this certificate.”
Intertek Certification AB, who led the ISO 27001 evaluation process, was very impressed by Projectplace.
“Projectplace’s employees are very committed and responsible, which is key when it comes to security related issues,” said Per Ove Olausson, Lead Auditor at Intertek Certification AB. ”Everyone demonstrated a great deal of dedication and passion, which also shows in the quality of service Projectplace offers.”
The ISO 27001 certification focuses on the management as well as on structural and technical aspects of information security. The rigorous control of source code at Projectplace did not pass by unnoticed during the audit.
“On the technical level of this security evaluation we found that Projectplace is remarkably good at securing their code. It is actually the highest quality I have encountered.” said Per Ove Olausson.
Securing client data is a top priority for Projectplace. With the ISO 27001 the company has received a significant third party verification that vouches for the secure structures within the organization. The certification is a proof of what existing clients have benefited from for over a decade.
