The ISO 27001 designation is considered the global gold standard in information security. It outlines best practices for an information security management system (ISMS).
It is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical, and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes.
Ian Pittam, head of security at Asite, said: “I am proud to announce International Standards Organization (ISO) 27001 security certification across our entire platform globally.
“This certificate is the result of years of working with our customers to ensure the Asite Platform meets the high standards of security we set out for ourselves – and that our customers expect.
“At Asite, we are committed to providing our clients with a secure platform they can rely on to be the single source of truth for their capital project and asset data.
“Security is of the utmost importance to the team, and we remain wholly dedicated to delivering a world-class Software as a Service Platform and to helping the world build better.”
The attainment of the new ISO 27001 certificate follows a six-month assessment process by independent experts and builds on Asite’s existing information security controls which ensure all areas of the network are protected.
It guarantees that Asite’s clients can expect precise and continuous management of information security risks.
Implemented controls include security-by-design product development, data encryption, vulnerability management, business continuity and disaster recovery plans, and much more.
This new certification is in addition to the long-standing ISO 27001 certifications of Asite’s global data centre partners.
The Asite team manages a global platform with underlying data centres spread across the UK, EU, USA, Middle East, and Australia-Pacific regions.
