Mimecast, the cloud email archiving, continuity and security service provider, today announced that it has been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 certification.
In recent years, ISO/IEC 27001 and accompanying ISO/IEC 27002 have been revised. The new version is the first revision since ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and puts more emphasis on measuring and evaluating how well an organization’s information security management system is performing.
Mimecast was previously ISO 27001:2005 certified but updated to the 2013 version that includes increased emphasis on product development controls and maintaining a secure supply chain. The certification covers the service platform, product, infrastructure, support, operational services and facilities in all of Mimecast’s regions around the world.
“ISO 27001 is globally recognized as the best framework to demonstrate audited and continual improvement and on-going security management” said Neil Murray, Chief Technology Officer at Mimecast.
“The updated standard reflects Mimecast’s commitment to supply chain security, business continuity for our customers and the governance, development, verification and deployment of our software and services,” added Murray.
Mimecast (mimecast.com) makes business email and data safer for more than 13,000 customers and millions of employees worldwide. Founded in 2003, the company’s cloud-based security, archiving and continuity services protect email, and deliver comprehensive email risk management in a single, fully-integrated subscription service. Mimecast reduces email risk and eliminates the complexity and cost of managing the array of point solutions traditionally used to protect email and its data. For customers that have migrated to cloud services like Microsoft Office 365, Mimecast mitigates single vendor exposure by strengthening security coverage, combating downtime and improving archiving.
Mimecast Email Security protects against malware, spam, advanced phishing and other emerging attacks, while preventing data leaks. Mimecast Mailbox Continuity ensures employees can continue using email during planned and unplanned outages. Mimecast Information Archiving unifies email, file and Instant Messaging data to support e-discovery and give employees fast access to their personal archive via PC, Mac and mobile apps.
