Berlin, London, Madrid, Milan, Mumbai, New York, Paris:
One year after getting its ISO/IEC 27001 enterprise-grade security certification, zeotap has been able to prove once more that it meets the stringent requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving the information security management system (ISMS) defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). As a result, zeotap received its ISO re-certification in May 2018.
Moreover, zeotap undertook an additional rigorous security assessment for the parts of its business that make use of cloud services and was awarded the STAR Silver – and the 2nd highest level – by the independent and non-profit CSA (Cloud Security Alliance) certification body. The CSA certification is only granted only on the grounds of a successful ISO certification and can be regarded as an additional layer of security and both certifications entail a rigorous audit in which not only technological safeguards and monitoring are tested, but also the security of office premises, communication safeguards, quality of leadership and management and the degree to which employees are educated about the topic. You can view zeotap’s ISO certification here and its CSA certification here.
For zeotap as a data platform that partners with large corporates since its early days, it has always been paramount to provide them with the necessary assurance that they can conduct their business with confidence. In addition to its certifications zeotap has also put its security infrastructure through practical tests such as in a hack-labs project with a major US telecom operator. Both zeotap and the operator attempted to hack zeotap’s technology, zeoCore, for 3 consecutive months without success and under rigid observation and advice of a white-hat hacking firm.
In order to support all certification processes and practical tests, zeotap has counted on the internal expertise of Projjol Banerjea – Co-Founder, CPO at zeotap and CIPT (Certified Information Privacy Technologist) and Guru Patnaik – Associate Director of Information Security at zeotap, guided by renowned external standards body BSI (British Standards Institution) Group. As part of the process, several mandatory controls and advanced security tools were implemented to keep the data secure along all business stages.
“zeotap has always distinguished itself as a partner with stringent data privacy and security controls. Their new certifications are a testament to their commitment,” Marta Belmonte Gómez, Innovation Manager at Orange Spain.
