TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Optimal IdM, a leading provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, today announced it has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, the international standard outlining best practices for information security management systems. The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization.

The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification provides requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system. It preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.

“We strive to have a consistent and repeatable risk-based security program, something our SOC 2 and ISO 27001 certifications demonstrate,” said Ed Gorczyca, Chief Compliance Officer at Optimal IdM. “These certifications validate our commitment to transparency and providing the highest standards of security to our customers.”

The ISO certification confirms a management and security program is in place to address the risks associated with a cloud-based deployment.  This provides another independent assurance to our customers that our operational approach and methods for The OptimalCloud™ provide a safe, secured, and controlled environment with routine monitoring and oversight.  The result is a robust system that enhances our cloud product offerings.

The Optimal IdM product and service portfolio includes a full-featured cloud Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform named The OptimalCloud. The OptimalCloud provides universal single-sign-on (SSO), Federation Brokering, MFA Services, authorization enforcement, audit and reporting services. It can be combined with the exclusive power of Optimal’s Virtual Directory to solve today’s unique identity, cybersecurity, regulatory and compliancy issues.

Optimal IdM’s on-premise offerings include the award winning Virtual Identity Server (VIS), which provides a secure, policy driven SSO solution incorporating Federation Services, and a single manageable console for initial authentication security policies.
