Newcastle upon Tyne, UK (PRWEB UK) 22 August 2013
Kykloud, the market leading cloud based provider of mobile surveying and built asset management software is the first cloud based technology provider in its field to be awarded the prestigious ISO/IEC 27001:2005 Security Certification (ISO 27001).
ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised standard for certifying that a provider's Information Security Management System (ISMS) protects its information and data and that of its customers.
As the only internationally accepted security standard, ISO 27001 demonstrates and ensures security best practices and a managed approach to business information protection including risk, governance and compliance. It provides total reassurance and peace of mind to clients that their data is being managed and stored securely by a provider who has undergone vigorous testing.
Nick Graham, CTO at Kykloud said: “Being the first cloud based mobile building surveying software vendor to achieve this certification reinforces our commitment to data security and sets us apart from others in the market. Security is one of the biggest concerns for our customer base; whilst we knew our systems and procedures were watertight, opening ourselves up to independent audit and penetration testing will be instrumental in the ongoing growth of our business.
“Kykloud sells into many different types of organisation from SME to Global Enterprises and for our larger customers, government agencies and financial institutions, particularly in Europe and Australasia, ISO 27001 certification is expected. Kykloud is now extremely well positioned to grow further in this area.”
Kykloud’s ISO 27001 certification affirms its market leading status in providing a consistent, reliable and secure operating environment to support the management of over 30m m2 of property worldwide.
