SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) April 16, 2019
PRO Unlimited, a global innovator of contingent workforce management software and services, announced today it has achieved CSA STAR certification from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and has successfully incorporated the control requirements from ISO/IEC 27017:2015 into its ISO/IEC 27017:2013 certification, an international standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). These two new certifications indicate that PRO has surpassed rigorous third-party independent assessments of its security as a cloud service provider.
The CSA STAR certification is proof of PRO’s unwavering commitment to adhere to industry-recognized standards. The CSA is a premier organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. There are 16 control areas that dictate certification level, including but not limited to compliance, data governance, facility security, human resources, information security, legal, operations management, risk management, release management, resiliency and security architecture.
In addition to the CSA STAR certification, PRO achieved inclusion of ISO/IEC 27017:2015 into its currently certified ISO/IEC 27001:2013 information security management system, which also includes the control requirements of ISO/IEC 27018:2014. This internationally recognized standard help organizations keep information assets — including personally identifiable information (PII) — secure, private and confidential within a cloud-based environment. The ISO/IEC 27017:2015 guidelines are part of PRO’s multi-tier security model covering all aspects of cloud services for its clients. This model and the PRO controls are based on international protocols, standards and industry best practices.
“As a global leader, pioneer and innovator in the VMS and MSP space, PRO is committed to ensuring companies that their VMS platform has gone through all of the steps necessary to be as secure as it can be,” said Peter Gaffney, SVP, Systems and CISO at PRO Unlimited. “We are pleased to have achieved both CSA STAR and ISO/IEC 27017:2015 certifications. We will continue to invest in global standards like these to provide the most secure VMS solution possible.”
These compliance achievements are industry agnostic. They benefit PRO’s clients by providing independent validation of the security controls and processes PRO has implemented to protect client data.
