RapidCompute Achieves ISO/IEC 27001 Security Certification


Pakistan’s first enterprise cloud service provider RapidCompute announced today that it has recently achieved ISO/IEC 27001 security certification for providing cloud services.

The audit was carried out by SGS SSC, a reputed global leader in the Systems and Certification market.

The ISO 27001 standard is awarded to organizations who can demonstrate that necessary controls and measures are in place to address data confidentiality, integrity and availability. Any organization that wishes to obtain this certification has to be formally audited and certified compliant with the ISO/IEC 27001 standard.

Commenting on the achievement, RapidCompute’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Danish A. Lakhani said, “At RapidCompute, one of our key priorities is the security of our customer’s information and business continuity. To ensure that our security standards are at par with international best practices, the ISO/IEC 27001 certification was crucial”.

RapidCompute is also a registered member of the Cloud Security Alliance’s Security, Trust and Assurance Registry (STAR).

Mr. Lakhani continued: “Data security has emerged as one of the biggest concerns among customers and government organizations while moving critical infrastructure to cloud providers. With ISO 27001 and the voluntary CSA STAR disclosure, RapidCompute ensures that its customers are safe in the knowledge that their services are hosted with a secure and trusted cloud operator”.

RapidCompute is a division of Cyber Internet Services (Pvt.) Ltd which launched enterprise class cloud computing in the country in 2012 focusing on providing true cloud solutions that meet the stringent IT and business requirements of the corporate sector as well as government organizations.
