Vigorous Selection and Scoping Ensures Best Practice Across Entire Operations
Cloud and Managed Hosting expert, DediPower is now fully ISO 27001 certified. Taking ISO 27001 adoption to its extreme, DediPower has not only implemented all 20 of the standard's mandatory clauses but also 129 additional controls. This reflects the DediPower 'Support with Passion' philosophy that ensures excellence across all their managed hosting, cloud computing and co-location services.
Chris Miller, DediPower's CEO comments, "Enterprises need to trust their hosting provider to safeguard their valuable data and provide best practice. Consequently, many are seeking the reassurance that an ISO standard brings. However, all certification is not necessarily the same and, in some cases, the scope can fall short. At DediPower, we wanted to make ISO 27001 count and chose to adopt it across our entire operations - that meant implementing the additional 129 controls for the Information Security Management System (ISMS), leaving only 4 non-applicable clauses out."
The accreditation includes all of DediPower's Enterprise Class Tier 3 data centres, its offices, departments and employees. The British Standards Institute (BSI) will externally audit these twice a year to ensure continued compliance.
Miller adds, "Choosing to implement ISO 27001 represents a major long term commitment. One that involves appropriate management support and systems as well as continual improvement programmes and on going assessment of risks, vulnerabilities and threats. Information Security is not a "fix and forget" system, it is constantly evolving and changing. Responding positively and responsibly to these needs is an integral part of DediPower's proactive approach to its solutions and clients."
DediPower, backed by its philosophy of "support with passion", is a leading international provider of IT hosting and cloud infrastructure solutions.
