SunGard Availability Services, the pioneer and leading provider of Information Availability services, today announced that it has achieved the ISO 27001:2005 standard for its enterprise-grade shared private cloud environment and managed services offering. By attaining the standard SunGard has proven to an independent third-party that it has developed and implemented a best-in-class information security management system (ISMS) for itself and its customers.
The ISO 27001:2005 certification provides organisations with an internationally recognised, independent verification that the company is able to securely manage information security, retaining confidentiality, integrity and availability of all data. By being compliant with the standard SunGard has proven that it has in place the appropriate processes to properly secure its data and the data of its customers – helping businesses ensure that their mission critical information is both safe and readily accessible.
“Achieving ISO 27001 for cloud and managed services environments is an important step in SunGard’s mission to provide the highest level of data resilience. As organisations strive to meet increasingly difficult, 24/7 customer service demands they need to trust that their vital information is being held in a secure, properly managed environment,” said Chris Higgins, Customer Services Director, SunGard Availability Services. “Being endorsed by an independent and internationally recognised body will bring further piece of mind to our customers and assure them that, as their partner of choice for cloud or managed hosting, that resilience and information availability is built into all aspects of our business, from strategic planning to day-to-day operations.”
