CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) - BigMachines, Inc., the global leader in product configuration, pricing and quoting, proposal generation and B2B eCommerce, today announced they have achieved the esteemed ISO 27001 certification.
ISO 27001 certification is awarded by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and requires that companies methodically examine account threats, liabilities, and potential systems impacts. These best-in-class companies then create and implement a wide-ranging collection of controls to address intolerable risks. ISO 27001 certification requires that a company adopts best-practice processes to manage all risks and actions, and meet the organization's security needs on an ongoing basis. ISO 27001 is internationally recognized as the standard for information security management systems, identifying, managing, and minimizing an array of information security threats.
"Knowing how important information security is to our customers, we set out to achieve compliance with the highest standards in global information security management. Securing ISO 27001 certification further solidifies BigMachines' position as the CPQ leader," said Rick Potocki, Vice President of Cloud Services for BigMachines. "Although BigMachines provides SaaS-based CPQ to a larger customer base than all of our competitors combined, this accreditation further distinguishes our leadership role and will help fuel growth within a customer base looking for the highest levels of security."
To demonstrate an even stronger commitment to the highest levels of security, BigMachines' management took the additional step of requiring all employees be trained on the certification and how it impacts each individual's job, and an exam on the material covered.
This accreditation adds to the company's existing SAS 70 and U.S.-EU Safe Harbor certifications within its commercial sector.
