Agilyx Cloud credentials strengthened with ISO Information Security accreditation and top marks!

Agilyx, Unit4’s leading software partner in Australia and New Zealand has been awarded the significant world-renowned ISO Information Security certificate – ISO27001.

1 March 2016

At a recent recognition event with BSI (the global ISO 27001 certifying body), Agilyx celebrated the dual honour of achieving the ISO27001 certification with a ‘zero non-conformance’ score from their independent auditors – the equivalent of an A+.

ISO 27001 is the strictest standard available internationally in information security management systems. The standards mandate rigour in management systems to prevent and/or reduce the impact of security incidents by enabling organisations to adopt and certify best practice in data security and systems. The audit process is a comprehensive examination of the information security risks in an organisation, highlighting threats and vulnerabilities and assesses the efficiency and effectiveness of the existing controls and countermeasures.

As a cloud-first solutions company, Agilyx has always placed a high priority on safeguarding information and the ISO 27001 certification independently confirms our commitment to comprehensive information security at every level. Compliance with this internationally recognised standard underscores the fact that Agilyx’s security management system is both comprehensive and contemporary and follows best practice in maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. It provides the assurances and clarity often required by customers wishing to engage with Agilyx for ERP services, in particular, government agencies and large private sector organisations.

As part of the ISO certification process, Agilyx had its information security management systematically audited and the ERP software company was found to have met all certification requirements with zero non-conformities including:

  • Numerous processes that ensure the ongoing improvement of Information Security, such as:
    • Policy and procedure development
    • Risk management
    • Security reviews
    • Monitoring control effectiveness
    • Regular governance meetings
    • Internal audits
  • A comprehensive business management system that empowers Agilyx to detect, evaluate and treat information risks effectively.
  • A set of security procedures such as physical security, processes, third-party contracts, technical controls and business continuity management.

BSI, who independently audited and certified Agilyx for ISO27001 comments:

“Organisations must be trusted to safeguard sensitive information and adopt information-security minded practices to show customers they’re willing to go the extra mile to protect and look after their data. Throughout the audit process Agilyx showed strong top management commitment and widespread information security awareness throughout the business. They should be proud of this achievement which reflects the commitment to the services they provide their clients.”

John Catarinich, Agilyx CEO, commented:

“We are very excited to have achieved our goal in creating an enduring, integrated security management system for our business and customers. The award of the ISO27001 accreditation, and acknowledgment from our auditors that the quality and scale of what we have created is best-in-class, is something that we are all incredibly proud of. The award of the ISO standard marks another ‘first’ for our company and our amazing team and is a practical ‘win’ for our customers in terms of a sustainable business benefit for them.

As a cloud based solutions Company, we are acutely aware of the need to operate robust, secure systems for the benefit of our customers. More than 2 years of planning, review and execution in our security management protocols culminated in the award of the ISO accreditation – our challenge is to safeguard and extend this management philosophy and practice into everything we do for all of our global operations”.
