STRONGSVILLE, Ohio, Dec. 8 Antares Management Solutions has met the rigorous standards in the way it conducts business and services customers earning an ISO 27001 Certification.
ISO 27001 is an information security management standard for organizations. The basis for the standard is that an organization's most valuable asset is its information. As a valued asset, information must be managed and protected from internal and external threats. In order to protect its information assets, the organization must develop sustainable security measures and integrate those measures into its business processes.
The certification was a result of a collaboration with JBW Group International Inc., which worked with Antares to facilitate the identification of business processes and developed strategic risk management strategies for critical client and business information. Consultants from JBW Group also assisted with organizing the existing information security program into an ISO-compliant framework.
"Antares' careful selection process identified JBW Group as the partner we needed to ensure the success for this project," said Ken Sidon, President of Antares. "Having earned this certification it is now our responsibility to continue to strive for continual improvement in the way we do business and provide service to our customers."
John B. Weaver, President and CEO of JBW Group International said, "It was very gratifying to work with an organization that recognizes the importance of information security and the value of implementing an Information Security Management System. The same drive for excellence that Antares demonstrates to their customers every day was apparent throughout the implementation process and certification on the first attempt."
The certification applies to the operation and support of mainframe, midrange and client server computer information systems for the provision of System Management, Help Desk, Telecommunications and Desktop Services.
