M-Files celebrates security after achieving ISO 27001 certification

22 Mar 2017

Enterprise content management solution provider M-Files has achieved an ‘important milestone’ after achieving ISO 27001 certification.

The company, which has operations in ANZ, says the certifications shows that it adheres to stringent security controls for delivery and support of its cloud solutions.

According to M-Files, the ISO 27001 standard is an international information security management standard that looks at risks from people, processes and IT systems and how they manage sensitive company information.

M-Files was audited and verified by Inspecta, which issued the certification. 

"ISO 27001 certification is an important milestone for M-Files, which will help us compete more effectively on a global level and continue to grow our global cloud business,” comments Jim Geary, executive chairman of M-Files Corporation.

“Obtaining this certification demonstrates to our customers and partners that M-Files understands the importance of implementing strict information security controls, and has adopted internal processes and procedures to ensure the security of all of our software solutions and services,” he says.

The ISO 27001 certification attests that ‘M-Files maintains strict controls and processes to ensure security policies are followed throughout the organisation's cloud operations’.

Jyrki Lahnalahti, Inspecta’s product manager, says the ISO certification is a valuable asset for credibility.

"Achieving ISO 27001 certification strengthens the credibility of companies that can demonstrate they follow strict information security protocols. By achieving compliance with internationally recognised standards such as ISO 27001, providers of solutions and services provide clear proof that information security is a top priority,” Lahnalahti says.
