JT’s position as an accredited supplier providing the highest levels of security for its Data Centre and Managed Service customers has been further strengthened.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013, the highly regarded Information Security Management System, was implemented last year in JT’s Data Centres and Cloud services, proving that JT is compliant with and meets the standards for using the very best practices in information security.
Our ISO 27001 accreditation has now been expanded to include the JT Service Management Centre (SMC) – meaning that JT’s managed services also adhere to the top global information security standard.
The JT SMC provides a fully managed service to customers who want to outsource the management responsibility of their network and voice to a trusted partner like JT, including the on-boarding, monitoring and configuration processes.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised information management standard that sets out a systematic approach to managing the confidentiality, availability and integrity of sensitive company and customer information.
Paul D Taylor, Managing Director of JT’s Global Enterprise Division, said: “There is no denying that security presents all businesses today with the challenge of keeping their data safe and secure. The prevalence and growth of increasingly sophisticated threats, such as brute force, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and ransomware attacks are real risks for companies as a threat to the security of customer data.
“Securing and meeting the rigid requirements of Information Security Management Systems such as ISO 27001 is now a pre-requisite for many companies when choosing a business partner and an essential part of many customers’ checklists when they are rightly seeking reassurances that their business partners are doing enough to protect their data.
“Frameworks such as ISO 27001 help to differentiate JT’s services further and reinforce our security expertise, knowledge and capability in a highly competitive marketplace.”
