28 February 2013, Cambridge – Signify, the cloud-based secure authentication service, has achieved ISO27001 certification. Signify provides 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) as a hosted service in the cloud that enhances the security of its customers systems, especially their remote access and cloud-based systems. The ISO27001 certification demonstrates that Signify’s security and reliability are in line with world-class standards, ensuring it meets the needs of its security conscious customers. This puts it best in class as an authentication service provider.
“With concerns about data protection and security, organisations are increasingly looking for suppliers to have ISO27001 to give them reassurance and peace of mind,” said Dave Abraham, CEO at Signify. “We have been helping customers to protect their valuable information and IT assets and have always put security and reliability at the core of everything we do for more than 12 years. Achieving ISO27001 certification now confirms that we manage, secure and maintain our systems and processes to the highest global standard. This not only reinforces our customers’ trust, it also differentiates us from other 2FA service providers.”
When choosing a hosted authentication service it is essential to have complete confidence that sensitive business and user information will be safe. This means ensuring that the service is robust, reliable and secure at all times.
ISO/IEC 27001:2005 sets out requirements for organisations throughout the world, to develop and maintain a robust information security management system. Through a systematic evaluation of information security risks throughout the business, Signify has designed and implemented a comprehensive set of best practice information security controls and management processes in line with much larger global companies, demonstrating its no-compromise commitment to information security.
“While ISO27001 certification gives our customers confidence in Signify, the work doesn’t stop now,” says Abraham. “Our information security is under continuous review and we have put processes in place to ensure continuous development of information security and improvements to our systems.”
Signify has tried and tested framework of policies, procedures, logistics and 24/7 user support designed to simplify the whole identify management lifecycle. By using Signify, 2FA is not only made easy and affordable, it enables companies to successfully manage digital identity and have a more secure, reliable and flexible solution than they could ever achieve by running their own in-house systems.
