Supply Chain Matters Sustaining Sponsor E2open, Inc. announced last week that it is the first dedicated, cloud-based supply chain Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technology provider to achieve International Organization for Standardization/Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) 27001:2005 Security Certification.
The internationally recognized ISO 27001 standard certification addresses the protection of information within an individual system. The ISO 27001 standard itself was first published in October 2005 and provides specifics for security management, governance, controls and compliance. The company joins many leading, global businesses that have earned the prestigious ISO 27001 certification, including Amazon, Microsoft, and Salesforce.com. E2open further maintains SSAE16 certification for controls for processes for the past seven years.
Corporate business, functional and IT teams continue to be diligent to the security of data, whether it resides inside or outside the firewall. Supply chain and B2B focused cloud-based systems must therefore protect such data, and achieving this level of ISO certification helps to assure customers that proper measures and controls regarding data have been outlined and are practiced.
Congratulations to the E2open technical teams for this important achievement and milestone.
Disclosure: E2open is one of other named sponsors of the Supply Chain Matters Blog.
