“After thorough review, BeyondTrust’s on-premises and cloud products fulfill the standards set forth in ISO 27701 regarding protecting customer data,” said Dan Schroeder, Partner-in-Charge of Information Assurance Services at Aprio. “These reporting standards are industry best practice risk management guidelines for security, privacy, and other operational controls for SaaS and other technology service providers.”
“Our customers now have certified third-party attestation that the design, implementation, and operation of BeyondTrust’s Privacy controls meet or exceed the criteria set by the ISO 27701," said Abdul Badruddin, Senior Director of Governance, Risk and Compliance. “Earning the ISO 27701 certification reflects our ongoing commitment to the security and privacy of our customers in this era of increasing cyber-attacks, particularly with the dramatically increasing remote workforce.”
