ServiceNow passes security test - now certified to hold AU Govt. info
ServiceNow has received the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) certification for cloud services which means the company can now hold Australian Government Unclassified DLM information.
Granted by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) for ‘Unclassified DLM’, ServiceNow was audited by an independent assessor endorsed under the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP).
The IRAP is administered by the Australian Signals Directorate. The assessment examined the security measures of ServiceNow’s staff, processes and technology, ensuring they meet the Australian Government’s stringent standards.
This included a review of the company’s Australian data centres in Brisbane and Sydney.
“We are very pleased to receive this recognition by the Australian Government, which will help provide local, state and federal government agencies the reassurance to accelerate their move to the cloud,” says David Oakley, managing director, ServiceNow A/NZ.
ServiceNow joins a list of other ASD certified cloud service providers including IBM, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Salesforce, Macquarie Telecom and Vault Systems.
ServiceNow was established in 2004 in San Diego by Fred Luddy.
