Email Hippo Weighs in with Even More Data Security

Share Article

Email Hippo Limited, one of the world’s leading email verification and data service companies has extended its international quality accreditation for data security.

The ISO 27001 accreditation, certified by the British Assessment Bureau, has been achieved once more by this forward thinking company. But this is more than a simple renewal of a quality standard. The extent of the accreditation has been increased to acknowledge the data validation services the company delivers through the cloud.

Back in 2017, Email Hippo became the first email verification company to be accredited to the internationally recognised quality standard for information security management systems. Since then, the company’s growth rate has rocketed and it has gone on to provide cloud based data validation services to thousands of businesses worldwide.

Rowland O’Connor, founder and CEO of Email Hippo sees data security as the foundation for growth into new sectors.

“Identity theft and cyber crime were barely heard of when I created an email verification service back in the early 2000’s. Since then, data security has moved to the heart of everything we do. We process our customers data securely and we’ve developed valuable new services that help people reduce the impact of fraud on their business.”

“Data security doesn’t have borders - and that’s why we throw our weight into making sure our security systems reach the highest international quality accreditation in the world.”
