iomart has achieved the latest certification requirements for the global standards governing the operation of Quality and Environmental Management Systems.
iomart’s management systems are compliant with ISO 9001: 2015, and ISO 14001: 2015. The ISO certifications were updated to the latest versions following a stringent evaluation by Alcumus ISOQAR, a UKAS accredited certifying body, of the way that iomart manages and delivers its managed hosting and cloud services whilst also considering their environmental impact.
ISO 9001:2015 means that iomart is certified for the provision of managed hosting and cloud services in resilient secure data centres.
ISO 14001:2015 certifies that iomart provides its hosting services according to the latest environmental management standards.
Steve Flockhart, Head of Information Assurance and Compliance for iomart, explained: “Customers need to be able to trust their hosting provider to operate to the highest industry management standards. That’s why iomart continues to invest in making sure we have the most comprehensive and up-to-date certifications for our management systems, our delivery processes and our people, so our customers can be confident that we are delivering the very best services to them.”
iomart carries more industry certifications than most other hosting companies, including ISO 27001: 2013 for Information Security Management and ISO 20000: 2011 for IT Service Management. It was one of the early adopters, along with Microsoft and AWS, of ISO/IEC 27018:2014, the new cloud privacy standard introduced to establish a uniform worldwide approach to protecting personal data in the public cloud. It also operates to ISO/IEC 27017:2015 the new standard which covers information security techniques for cloud computing security and privacy management systems.
Bill Strain, CTO of iomart, added: “External accreditation is an important differentiator for our customers and for those organisations, in the private and public sector, who need a reliable partner to help them get the best out of cloud technology. It means they can have confidence in us and that we are being transparent, managing data carefully and operating to the highest standards.”Subscribe to RSS Feed
