• UKFast achieves ISO 27017 compliance

        • UKFast has achieved the latest cloud security standard, ISO 27017 which provides guidance on security aspects of cloud computing, recommending the implementation of cloud-specific information security controls, demonstrating the employment of best practice protocols by providers. 

          The standard requires providers to demonstrate that they inform clients about how their data is protected and the steps taken during the building and deployment of solutions to ensure adequate levels of security. Holders of the standard must also demonstrate a stringent process of internal auditing and regular training for technical teams.

          Lawrence Jones, UKFast CEO said, “when it comes to cloud security, a lot depends on having a good relationship with your provider. Businesses need to understand how their cloud is protected. Who has access to your data and how are they vetted? What technical controls protect it and how is it monitored?

          “ISO 27017 ensures providers have systems in place, not only to protect data, but also to help their customers understand how it is protected. We’re incredibly proud that our eCloud® stands up to the most rigorous standards of industry testing.”

          UKFast’s eCloud portfolio includes private, hybrid and public cloud options, alongside open source development platform eCloud Flex and drag-and-drop storage solution eCloud Vault. The firm also offers a range of additional security solutions and features. 

          UKFast’s ISO 27017 follows shortly after the attainment of ISO 27018:2014, the code of best practice for protecting personally identifiable information in the cloud. This certification complements many of the data processing responsibilities set out by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
