Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TA' XBIEX, Malta - Oct 23, 2019 - As of September 3, 2019, QArea’s team meets the ISO 27001:2013 standards, as certified by the Bureau Veritas certification agency.
ISO 27001 is a global information security management standard created by the International Organization for Standardization in 2005. Previously, this standard was covered by the BS 7799 standard published by the BSI Group. The standard requires that information security in a software development company is consistently monitored and managed and that security measures are taken in every sphere of a company’s operation (from the protection of digital information stored on devices to the physical security of their office space).
Similarly to the CMMI Appraisal that the company went through in the previous year, the Bureau Veritas certification agency audited the company’s offices, development practices, and the processes with which its leadership and team consistently implement information security best practices.
This means that security measures are preventative, organized, and consistent. QArea’s team is certifiably proactive in its efforts to achieve information security. QArea’s management consistently conducts risk assessments, and its teams undergo training and awareness programs to ensure all ISMS (Information Security Management Systems) are implemented on an individual and company-wide level.
Since QArea’s establishment in 2001, our teams have always prioritized quality, and this includes the quality of our security protocols. However, our team chose to go through a security audit and the ISO 27001 certification process to establish the credibility of our efforts.
All this is to say, QArea has and will continue to care about the security of its client’s information. From the code written for client projects to the documentation created by its development and QA teams — the company has implemented the necessary practices to prevent any third parties from compromising the security of the physical and digital spaces in which we work.
The company looks forward to continued work with existing clients and to the new projects it can now undertake with companies for whom the certifiably thorough information security standards are a prerequisite to long-term collaboration.
QArea, an outsourcing software development company, provides award-winning services of web and mobile development, testing, and QA, IT-consulting and client support. For 18 years, our team has successfully managed 800+ projects for startups, SMBs, and enterprise businesses, among which there are Microsoft, HuffPost, Skype, and eBay.
