TIE Kinetix Receives ISO 27001:2013 Certification for Information Security Management

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 18, 2014) - TIE Kinetix, (NYSE Euronext: TIE), a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of E-Commerce and Channel Marketing solutions, today announced that the organization is the first cloud-based E-Commerce solution provider to be awarded ISO 27001:2013 certification for information security management. The certification confirms that all sensitive customer and partner information is secured and managed at the highest level.

ISO 27001:2013 certification means that TIE Kinetix has been independently verified and awarded the only internationally recognized and most prestigious information security standard available. Additionally, by implementing the latest 2013 version, TIE Kinetix's Information Security Management System (ISMS) is compliant with the latest best practices, controls and industry standards.

Protecting information is a top priority for companies in the modern connected world, especially in regards to securing high volumes of sensitive online information. When businesses and consumers are managing and transmitting private data over the Internet, there are enormous potential consequences if it is not handled properly. Ensuring the safety of that data is integral for the protection of the company, its customers and its partners.

Jan Sundelin, CEO of TIE Kinetix, said: "In the past few years several large companies have dealt with major intrusions and/or hacks of their software or infrastructure that have resulted in the loss or exposure of sensitive customer information. Preventing similar instances and ensuring the safety of all sensitive customer and partner data is a top priority for TIE Kinetix, and we have taken proactive actions to ensure that information is managed and stored securely so that our partners and customers can have complete confidence in the safety of the information they share with us. Gaining ISO 27001: 2013 certification allows us to deliver a unique level of security for our customers that the majority of competitors cannot offer at this time."

The ISO 27001:2013 was certified by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance of Rotterdam and the process required TIE Kinetix to:

  • Thoroughly evaluate its own information security risks, including the impact of identified threats and vulnerabilities
  • Design and implement a comprehensive set of information security controls and other risk management measures to address security risks within its own cloud infrastructure as well as its corporate environment
  • Implement an overarching program to ensure that the information security controls meet the information security needs for both TIE Kinetix and its customers on an ongoing basis
