Growth is a natural byproduct of any successful business. However, with any type of growth, VSP (1)come growing pains. As your business grows, one way to ease those growing pains is to have a clear option when it comes to your cloud strategy. The vCloud Air Network makes compliance clear. In our previous vCloud Air Network Compliance Spotlight blogs, we focused on HIPAA and PCI-DSS.

Now, we’re turning our vCloud Air Network Compliance Spotlight to ISO 27001 Standard.

Published in 2005 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 27001 is the specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS), replacing the previous BS7799-2 standard.

So what exactly does ISO 27001 aim to achieve?

ISO 27001 provides requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving an ISMS. ISO 27001 certification ensures that confidential information is secured from both a technical and organizational perspective, as well as gives customers and stakeholders confidence in how an organization manages risk. Demonstrating invaluable security of solutions for customers, many cloud providers work toward ISO 27001 certification.

How else can an ISO 27001 certified provider help your organization?

  • Ensure secure exchange of information;
