Mix Telematics announced it has been certified to the ISO/IEC 27001 international standard for information security management.
“This demonstrates MiX Telematics’ strong commitment to protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information gathered, processed and provided to its customers,” the company said in a news release.
The certification provides stakeholders with the assurance that MiX Telematics has robust methods and processes in place to identify and mitigate risks relating to information systems management and security, according to the company. The credibility of the ISO/IEC 27001 certification is enhanced through the use of BSI (British Standards Institution) as the certification body, MiX added.
The scope of the certification includes the development, provision, management and support of mobile asset information, products and services that are delivered via MiX’s SaaS platform.
In addition to the ISO 27001 certification, MiX Telematics is certified for ISO 9001:2015 (the international standard for quality management systems), which the company has maintained since first achieving it in 2003.
“We are incredibly proud of this achievement, which took a lot of effort across multiple teams,” said Catherine Lewis, executive vice president of technology at MiX Telematics. “While some telematics companies leverage the certification of their cloud providers, few – if any – have achieved both ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certifications for their own development and operations environments. We believe this places us in a fairly unique position in the industry.”
