Tools4ever, one of the world’s largest providers of identity governance and administration solutions and services, is proud to announce that it has been certified for the ISO 27001 standard. This certification is issued by Brand Compliance, a leader in the field of audits and certifications. The ISO 27001 standard certification guarantees to Tools4ever’s customers and partners that the information security within its products are at the highest possible standards.
ISO 27001 is the worldwide standard signifying the highest degree of information security products available. The standard specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, executing, checking, assessing, maintaining, and improving a documented Information Security Management System (ISMS).
ISO 27001 certification requires extensive auditing to prove that a management system allows an organization to:
- Systematically examine information security risks while taking account of threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts of potential threats;
- Design and implement a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (e.g. risk avoidance, risk transfer) to address risks deemed unacceptable;
- Adopt an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet information security needs on an ongoing basis.
As ISO 27001 covers more than just IT processes, the ISMS under consideration must meet the above criteria when it comes to specified business units or the organization as a whole. Tools4ever’s certification demonstrates further that its solutions and consultancy expertise extend beyond isolated point solutions to cover identity management across entire operations.
Farid Ouachour, security and consultancy manager at Tools4ever, said: “As a software company, we have always been actively involved in information security and have continuously improved our products in this area. Through certification, we have demonstrably put our information security processes in order; both our technical solutions and overall governance have been tested and confirmed by Brand Compliance. Our customers and partners can trust that they work with a professional organization that takes information security seriously.”
In addition to efforts such as a biannual Deloitte scan, Tools4ever’s ISO 27001 certification is one more step the organization has gone through to verify the integrity of its solutions’ security.
“Continued certifications and testing give our customers and partners even more peace of mind when it comes to their information security,” said Tom Mowatt, managing director of Tools4ever.
