Assettrac, the online asset management software specialists, are delighted to announce that it has achieved Cyber Essentials Plus certification for its market-leading asset tracking and management software.
The Cyber Essentials scheme, led by the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is designed to help businesses and importantly, software developers, protect against the most common cyber threats for themselves and their clients.
Why Cyber Essentials Plus is Important for Asset Management Software Users
Assettrac takes the responsibility for managing its clients’ data seriously. A long-term holder of the Cyber Essentials accreditation, achieving Cyber Essentials Plus certification adds a higher level of assurance for its software clients by passing a third-party technical controls audit.
The certification and audit demands that Assettrac’s software and the company’s wider IT infrastructure passes tests on 5 key cyber security controls: firewalls, secure configuration, access control, malware protection and security update management. Every instance of Assettrac software is unique to its client with data held in the cloud, Assettrac’s Commercial Director, James Laing comments,
“It’s important to our clients that our technology flexes to individual reporting and operational needs. Equally important with an ever-growing business, is the need for consistency of backend processes and the security vigour of the architecture underpinning our cloud platform. This is true for customers whether they’re using more standard barcode and QR based systems or utilising the latest IoT/RTLS technology.
Our accreditation with Cyber Essentials Plus system also importantly provides customer assurance in this area.”
Cyber Essentials Plus audits are undertaken by NCSC accredited audits via the IASME Foundation. Certification is renewed following annual audits to ensure that the certifying company maintains its cyber security standards.
Laing continues, “We’re really delighted that the Cyber Essentials Plus certification reflects how we keep security constantly at the heart of our software development.”
