As a leader in the VMS and MSP spaces, we’re always investing in global standards to make our Wand VMS as secure as possible for our worldwide clients.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) November 11, 2019
PRO Unlimited, a global innovator of contingent workforce management software and services, announced today it has achieved the Cyber Essentials certification from the IASME Consortium. The new certification demonstrates that PRO has eclipsed stringent third-party independent assessments of its security as a cloud service provider.
To attain the Cyber Essentials certification, organizations must demonstrate that they have addressed the most common Internet-based threats to cyber security, including:
- Hacking: exploiting known vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, using widely available tools and techniques
- Phishing: ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
- Password Guessing: manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet by guessing passwords
“This latest certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to offering the most secure VMS solution possible,” said Peter Gaffney, SVP, Systems and CISO at PRO Unlimited. “As a leader in the VMS and MSP spaces, we’re always investing in global standards to make our Wand VMS as secure as possible for our worldwide clients.”
To that end, Wand (PRO’s VMS) is audited on a continual basis both internally and externally. In addition to the Cyber Essentials certification, PRO has been awarded the following certifications:
- SOC I Type II / SSAE 18
- ISO/IEC 27001:2013
- EU Privacy Shield
- Swiss Safe Harbor
- CSA STAR Certification
- ISO/IEC 27017:2015
- ISO/IEC 27018:2014
These compliance achievements are industry-agnostic. For PRO clients, they provide independent validation of the security controls and processes PRO has implemented to protect client data.
