NETWORK BOX | ISO Certification Upgrade

 

Network Box HQ is triple ISO 9001: 2008, ISO/IEC 20000:2011, ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified.

 

For Network Box HQ’s Security Operations Centre to be upgraded to the latest ISO standards, it took an enormous amount of work, involving a great number of people, all of whom had to put in a huge amount of effort for a very significant period of time.

 

Without doubt, this is a great achievement. Network Box HQ now not only has the latest triple ISO certification for its Security Operations Centre, but offers the only IPv6 Core Phase-2 certified managed security platform, as well as the only managed security service which can be monitored and managed from almost any secured mobile device.

 

Network Box is truly leading the world of Managed Security Services.

 

 

 



 

Network Box upgraded to ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System Certification Upgrade


Network Box Corporation Ltd. successfully upgraded to ISO 27001:2013 Certification

on the 11th February 2015 in recognition of the Information Security Management

System (ISMS) standard.

 

                                             

 

As information security management increasingly becomes a mainstream topic of conversation; both within governments and in company board rooms across the world; more and more IT Managers find themselves needing to actively demonstrate that the IT Security solutions they have put in place for their organizations are, "up to standard."

 

When IT Security news is regularly making newspaper, radio and television headlines; it is clearly no longer a subject restricted to the niche computer magazines and insider blogs.

 

Certainly, most IT Managers now understand that installing some "do-it-yourself" firewall, along with some traditional pull update anti-virus software, is just not going to "cut it" anymore. But what does being, "up to standard," actually mean?

 

Network Box believes that a very large part of being "up to standard," means ensuring that the security solutions in place, are installed, configured, monitored, maintained and supported to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards.

 

It is not good enough to just have the latest firewall, intrusion detection and prevention, virtual private networking, anti-malware, anti-spam, content filtering, company policy management, business continuity facilitation and automated reporting systems in place; someone (or more accurately a team of experts) needs to be monitoring, managing and updating all of the aforementioned network security systems, around the clock and all year round.

 

The reason that ISO/IEC 27001:2013 has become so important, is because although most organizations have some type of information security control, without a formal management system in place, even organizations which theoretically do have everything listed above in place, still suffer from results which are often uneven in nature, inconsistent in execution, and therefore suboptimal almost by very definition.

 

Security should never be "ad hoc" in nature. Consistency is the cornerstone of every standard.

 

So the question before IT Managers across the globe is fast becoming, "how do I get all of the required security systems in place, ensure they are managed to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards, yet achieve all of this in an economic environment where the goal is actually to cut spending?"

 

As a fully Managed Security Service, with management systems certified to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards, Network Box offers by far the best (and most economic) answer.

Not only the best answer for government departments, large multi-nationals, hospitals, banks, public companies, and retail operations with PCI requirements; but also for all the small and medium sized organizations around the world, that almost have no chance of affording (or wanting to afford) everything required to do the necessary work in-house, without expert third-party help.

 

Network Box's highly dedicated Security Operations Centre engineers work nonstop; through every night, through every holiday, and even through tornado warnings, hurricanes and floods; to help secure your computers, networks, and organizations, on a real-time basis, using PUSH update technology, all while conforming to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards.

 

In the end, true network security is a service, not just a mix of hardware and software. And that is what the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard is all about.
