We’re proud to announce that Alliantist, the company behind pam, has been awarded Cyber Essentials certification by IASME, one of four Cyber Essentials accreditation bodies appointed by the UK Government.
We have been compliant with Cyber Essentials since it was released but until now have concentrated on independent validation being achieved through our broader UKAS accredited ISO 27001:2013 certification, the international standard for Information Security.
The submission for Cyber Essentials certification was independently assessed by Security Risk Management Solutions, an IASME certifying body. Dr.Emma Philpott, CEO of IASME, congratulated us on our certification and said “It’s a clear demonstration of Alliantist’s ongoing commitment to information security”.
Working in areas of law enforcement that require a multitude of partners to share important and sensitive information means organisations must have the utmost levels of trust in a supplier. Alliantist’s credentials can deliver that trust and security. Commenting on this latest achievement Mark Darby, Chief Executive at Alliantist, said “As a trusted cloud software provider dealing with sensitive content, information security has always been important to us. Supplementing our existing ISO 27001 certification with Cyber Essentials gives further reassurance to our public and private sector clients who are increasingly seeing the two certifications as the standards to meet. Cyber Essentials means that we have independently met the five important technical security controls to protect against cyber attack.
“The Cyber Essentials Scheme accreditation is also a great step towards our submission to the GCloud8 framework. Following successful submissions to previous GCloud frameworks this will allow us to continue to offer our powerful, multi-tool, cloud technology to government.”
Information and its security is at the heart of an organisation and its supply chain. Being able to communicate and collaborate with staff and other stakeholders safe in the knowledge that our cloud technology is certificated secure makes using pam something our customers don’t have to worry about.
