Cloud based secure information management is now officially certified.
Central Europe On-Demand (CE On-Demand), the internationally recognised Cloud Services provider has earned ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) certification in September 2010. CE On-Demand passed an extensive audit of SGS certification authority and now the company has received independent recognition of what it has been providing to partners and customers to date: secure and reliable information management within the CE On-Demand cloud. This certificatation further establishes CE On-Demand’s belief that outsourcing a company’s IT communications services is most often much safer than keeping it in-house.
ISO/IEC 27001 specifies requirements for the establishment, implementation, monitoring and review, maintenance and improvement of an Information Security Management System – an overall management and control framework – for managing an organization’s information security risks. The official document certifies the security of data handled during the provision of Sofware as a Service using infrastructure located in datacenters.
CE On-Demand partners and customers can now be 100% sure that the service they get from their cloud services provider comply with the internationally-recognised ISO information security standards.
Andras Tudos, CE On-Demand’s Chief Technology Officer said: “Our customers require secure, reliable and a non-stop available IT services, let it be only for emailing or for more advanced enterprise solutions like Unified Communication, Automated Backup and Recovery, or Customer Relationship Management (CRM). CE On-Demand has always been providing the highest quality standards to its customers. All of our services are protected by thorough credentials and end-to-end encryption. We have proper processes in place for development, operation, and support and we pay special attention to protect our customers’ data. Besides platform and storage redundancy, high performance backups and a highly skilled, always available expert team, we host our services in clusters spread over multiple datacentres located in Central Europe with full disaster protection and zero downtime upgrades.”
Viktor Kovacs, Managing Director for International Operations of CE On-Demand added: “The ISO 27001 Certification provides independent, 3rd-party recognition of what has always been a company requirement for us: to provide Cloud Services to customers by the most rigorous security standards. Serving customers for more than two years now in Central Europe, we believe that information security is one of the most important assets for companies of all sizes. With this certification we can prove that cloud services of CE On-Demand conform to international ISO standards and more: we guarantee peace of mind for CTOs and COOs who now know that their company data is kept safe.”
The ISO 27001:2005 audit was concluded by SGS Hungary and the Certificate (HU10/5328) was issued by SGS United Kingdom Ltd. Systems & Services Certification. It is valid until August 2013 and remains valid subject to subsequent interim surveillence audits.
