A business with certifications in quality and security management is one that understands how to provide their customers with the highest level of service and data protection. ISO certifications are proof that a company adheres to the highest of standards in these two areas, as outlined by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
SafeHosts are proud to have achieved the coveted ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 27001 Information Security Management certifications from the British Assessment Bureau. We’re here to explain a little more about these two certifications and what they mean for SafeHosts customers.
Who Are The International Organisation for Standardization (ISO)?
ISO is an independent organisation based in Geneva, Switzerland. It is non-governmental and composed of over 160 national standard bodies across the globe, from the US to Uruguay. Together, the member bodies in the organisation create guidelines influencing all areas of international standards, from Health and Safety to our own Quality and Security Management certifications.
The organisation creates the guidelines, and external certification bodies like the British Assessment Bureau ensure companies adhere to the standards.
What Is The ISO 9001 Quality Management System Certification?
The ISO 9001 Quality Management System certification is confirmation that SafeHosts have clear, concise and process-driven workflows that consistently allow us to deliver high standards to our clients.
Our Quality Management System (QMS) is a defined set of processes that ensures each of our products and services are of premium quality, and we consistently deliver this level time and time again.
Achieving an ISO Certification not only shows existing excellence, but results in a future 75% boost to performance and efficiency. So repeat SafeHosts clients will not only benefit from our existing top quality colocation services, but continued improvement to come.
What Is A Quality Management System?
A QMS is a set of processes that a business implements specifically to deliver quality in their goods and services. They refer to a well-documented process that adheres to all the required legal, regulatory and quality standards the company needs to deliver a quality product. They create a transparent process for the customer, meaning that the company will deliver what they promise.
We see the ISO 9001 certification as proof that we’ll offer our clients exactly what we outline on the website, from our Dedicated Servers to our Colocation offering.
What Is The ISO 27001 Security Management System Certification?
The ISO 27001 Security Management System Certification is confirmation that SafeHosts adheres to the highest international standards for confidentiality, legal, GDPR and regulatory compliance, and the accuracy and availability of data. Statistics from the ITRC show that data breaches in 2021 have already surpassed 2020’s statistics by nearly 20%.
With the ISO 27001, you can have the confidence you need in SafeHosts, as we meet the top-level of security compliance.
What Is An Information Security Management System?
An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is the set of processes and objectives that help develop an organisation’s security strategy and management of IT infrastructure.
A good ISMS will ensure a company can proactively identify threats and opportunities to improve on security, as new risks develop over time. At SafeHosts, our ISMS is designed to consistently evolve and identify potential threats, to keep your data as secure as possible.
SafeHosts Commitment To Quality and Security Excellence
ISO certifications are awarded after an auditing process, which means that an independent assessor visited SafeHosts and conducted a review of our QMS and ISMS to ensure we met the standards of the certifications.
We’re proud to have achieved these two awards so we can prove to our customers that we’re committed to consistently delivering quality and security.
