Is Your Software Escrow Provider ISO 27001 Certified?

Published on 23/02/2017

Did you know that SES are one of only two ISO 27001 certified Software Escrow providers in the UK?

When procuring an Escrow agreement to protect your business critical applications, it’s essential that you choose a supplier who is ISO 27001 accredited. Only ISO 27001 certified Software Escrow providers have been independently verified against internationally recognised standards for Information Security and can give you complete peace of mind that your Escrow deposits are protected.

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized best practice framework for an information security management system (ISMS) and provides a systematic and pro-active approach to effectively managing risks to the security of an organisations confidential information.

The system promotes efficient management of sensitive corporate information, highlighting vulnerabilities to ensure it is adequately protected against potential threats. It encompasses people, process and IT systems.

Don’t gamble on the security of your business critical applications. Software Escrow providers who are not ISO 27001 accredited have not been independently verified and therefore cannot demonstrate that their security meets internationally recognised standards.

Our ISO 27001 certification is recertified annually by the British Assessment Bureau, a UKAS accredited organisation. UKAS is the UK’s national accreditation body and the only accreditation body which is recognised and supported by government.

Achieving accreditation from UKAS involves a rigorous head office review of management, policies and procedures. Certification bodies must also pass a test of their competence via witnessed assessment undertaken by UKAS. These rigorous measures enable UKAS accredited ISO certification providers to distinguish themselves from non-UKAS accredited providers, as once spotted, these non-UKAS ISO certifications are often rejected.
