ISO27001 certification for dns

Dns : 21 August, 2008  (New Product)
Managed Security Services from dns receive ISO27001 security certification after conformance testing
dns has successfully obtained certification to ISO27001 for its Managed Security Services (MSS). Obtaining this certification marks a major milestone in the company's history as this international standard proves to customers, potential customers and partner organisations that dns is managing information security risks to the very highest standards, in line with best practice.

The key concept of the ISO27001 standard is for an organisation to design, implement and maintain a coherent suite of processes and systems for effectively managing information security. This helps to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of important information assets whilst minimising information security risks to those assets. Although dns has always prided itself on setting the highest levels of managing information security, obtaining the ISO27001 certification is a step forward in further enhancing the UK-based security expert's excellent reputation in the MSS field.

Not only is this certification giving existing customers the peace of mind that they have outsourced their security management to a serious player in the market, but will also help dns to secure new major deals, as Richard Lewis, sales and marketing director at dns, points out.

"Increasingly, more and more public and private organisations are requesting the certificate as a prerequisite to offering MSS contracts. The fact that we can now produce this certificate is evidence to our customers that we are managing information security in line with industry best practice and confirms dns' position as one of the leading players in this market."

"Furthermore this certification will allow us to start to open doors into other markets where opportunities may not have been available in the past. The fact that we are now included on the quality registers that many companies check before starting the tender process will undoubtedly help to build on the consistent growth dns has experienced since we were founded in 1999."

Richard explains what it means to the company as a whole. "This really goes some way to validate what we have been saying for a long time; that we as a company are continually striving to reach the very highest levels of managed security services. It is really a matter of company pride that our efforts to comply with such a rigorous standard have been externally recognised - something I'm sure will now see us go from strength to strength over the coming years."
