Attaining both ISO 27001 and Type 2 SSAE 16 credentials places ShoreGroup in an exclusive position within the managed services business.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
ShoreGroup today announced that it has received its ISO 27001 (ISO/IEC 27001) Certification for managed service security. The ISO 27001 Certification, published by the International Organization for Standardization, is the leading international standard for measuring information security management systems (ISMS). The certification was granted by BrightLine CPAs and Associates, an ANAB accredited Certification Body based in the United States.
Today, ShoreGroup’s managed services are relied upon by a number of the world’s largest financial institutions, service providers, government agencies, leading IT manufacturers, global service integrators, and major enterprises that have the most demanding security requirements in the IT industry. ShoreGroup’s innovative and highly scalable service model consists of its patented CaseSentry® management and services automation platform deployed within the customer’s private cloud. This eliminates the pitfalls of traditional remote network and applications management methods as no sensitive data ever leaves the customer’s environment. In addition, ShoreGroup’s ShorePatrol® managed service follows strict policies and controls that protect customer data through a multi-tiered approach that is proven to adhere to the most stringent customer security mandates. The ISO 27001 Certification involved an independent evaluation of all facets of ShoreGroup’s managed services practice, and provides customers with the assurance that ShoreGroup’s services have met the rigorous demands of the ISO 27001 audit.
“In today’s world, security is of paramount concern for companies that want to take advantage of the many benefits that managed services offer,” said Robert Bojanek, ShoreGroup’s Executive Vice President. “Our CaseSentry management platform and ShorePatrol managed services were designed to operate in the most highly-secure environments, and we’ve proven our commitment to evolve in the ever-changing security landscape.
