American national security expert and former government official Richard Clarke famously once said “If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked.” We Akeneos do love our coffee, and Ziggy knows a good cup when she sees one. But our commitment to the continuous improvement of how we handle the security of our customers’ and partners’ data is infinitely more important than a strong café noir. And it is that commitment to security implementation and risk mitigation that has been validated with Akeneo achieving ISO 27001 certification status. This is a milestone that we are proud to reach and share with our community.

You may be wondering what ISO 27001 is exactly, and you wouldn’t be alone. In short, ISO 27001 is a management system covering processes, people, and tools to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information organizations manage in a systematic way. It not only provides the know-how, but a company can also get certified against ISO 27001 and so demonstrate to its customers, partners, and employees that it safeguards their data. As an international security standard, it is well-recognized around the world across all industries and organization sizes.

We have always treated the protection and management of our customers' and partners’ data as a top priority. We are proud to have achieved ISO 27001 certification status, and we are committed to continuously improving the security of our customers’ data so that they can be confident in working with Akeneo to accelerate their growth today and in the future.

The scope of the information security management system that Akeneo is certified for covers the activities and processes that we use to build, deliver and maintain the products that deal with client and partner data, including Akeneo PIM, Onboarder, Shared Catalogs, Connectors, and Apps. It also covers the different editions and ways we deploy our software, and all the Akeneo teams involved across all our office locations.

So why does this matter to you as a member of our Akeneo community? It’s a simple answer with huge implications: you can trust and rely upon a robust solution for PIM and PXM from a provider that takes the people, processes, and technologies to protect your data very seriously. One who is willing to make the investment and be audited by independent third parties to be certified in its approach to the security of your data.

So the next time you order that double-shot soy milk no foam spiced pumpkin latte in celebration of achieving your growth goals, you can do so confidently knowing that Akeneo is taking care of your data and the platform that helps drive your success.
