Eran Feigenbaum, Director of Security, Google Enterprise has announced that Google apps for business is now receives ISO 27001 certification. Now Google is following ISO security management protocols for Google Apps. This ISO 27001 certification, which was certified by Ernst & Young Certify Point, an ISO certification body accredited by the Dutch Accreditation Council, follows Google’s previous FISMA certification for its Google Apps for Government product.
“As a multi-billion dollar, global provider of packaging and packaging solutions, MWV understands the value of international standards. Many of our own processes are ISO certified. So, I am thrilled that Google Apps, our core communications platform, is also now ISO certified with its recent ISO 27001 certification. This certification validates what I already knew, through due diligence, about Google Apps – that the technology, process and infrastructure offers good security and protection for the data that I store in Google Apps. I think it’s important, find it assuring and are very pleased that Google Apps will be audited and certified to this Information Security Management System ISO standard on an ongoing basis”
- Chet Loveland, CISO and Global Compliance Officer, MWV
Google also point to its oldest certification and mentioned that our existing SSAE 16 / ISAE 3402 audits and FISMA certification for Google Apps for Government, help assure our customers that Google is committed to ongoing development and maintenance of a robust Information Security Management System (ISMS) that an independent, third-party auditor will regularly audit and certify.
Google also mention that security is an issue that business is moving to cloud. But one more thing that needs to be understand here “security consultant says that is not foolproof guaranty for security”. Google’s Eran Feigenbaum, the company’s director of security for its Google Enterprise group, believes that “businesses are beginning to realize that companies like Google can invest in security at a scale that’s difficult for many businesses to achieve on their own.” While most of Google’s competitors focus on getting their data centers certified, it’s worth noting that Google also argues that its certification is broader and also includes its networking infrastructure and applications.
