eHosting DataFort (eHDF), has certified for the ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management standard, and upgraded its ISO 27001 certification for Information Security Management to the latest version.

The managed hosting and cloud infrastructure services provider said that compliance with ISO standards is a vital part of its value proposition to show clients that it is operating in strict accordance with the highest international standards of information security and business continuity, and is following industry best practices for its business.

eHDF is also certified to ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and ISO 20000 (IT Service Management) for the last six years.

Yasser Zeineldin, CEO, eHosting DataFort said: "eHDF fully understands the sensitivity of critical customer data and the trust that customers place on us. With these certifications, we are able to demonstrate that we have adequate security measures in place to mitigate any potential risks that might affect client data. Being already certified to BS25999 and ISO 27001: 2005 certifications earlier, eHDF always had a head start when it came to expanding our credentials and obtaining the ISO 22301 and ISO 27001:2013 certifications. Achieving these certifications reflect our commitment to our customers, ensuring that we have the processes and procedures in place to provide international standards of information security and business continuity

With the ISO 22301 standard for business continuity, eHDF is able to guarantee planned and effective business continuity management at all levels, including organisation-wide identification and understanding of critical business processes, the impact of disruption, and timely as well as orderly responses to business disruptions. This standard protects against and reduces the impact of a disruptive event, while ensuring that business continues with minimal impact to customers.

The ISO 27001 is a widely-adopted global security standard that sets out requirements and best practices for a systematic approach to manage information that's based on periodic risk assessments. By meeting the ISO 27001 standards for Information security management systems, eHDF is able to provide customers an assurance that it has developed a best-in-class Information Security Management System (ISMS), which can manage information security risks that affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.

"These ISO certifications are eHDF's proactive response to providing our customers with a more agile, secure and always available infrastructure. Implementing the ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 standards and complying with similar international standards will enhance our customers' overall confidence in us," Zeineldin added.
