Alliantist announces another new customer for its cloud delivered information security management software service ISMS.online. Boomerang Messaging provides automated digital communications over SMS, e-mail and voice, enabling management of time critical alerts and notifications.
Boomerang works with a range of customers and recognises the importance of demonstrating its information security credentials to them. As such it has embarked on the route to ISO 27001: 2013, aiming for independent UKAS certification for its information security management system (ISMS). When asked why it chose ISMS.online, Andy Allen, Operations Director of Boomerang shared his thoughts –
“We were initially unfamiliar with ISO27001 and the route to certification. As an SME with our resources focused on the day-to-day operation of the business, we were clear that whatever path we followed must be easy to use, and flexible enough to change as we grow; whilst also ensuring that the changes we have implemented could be easily maintained and managed going forward. Cost was also a factor for us too, as was the ability to meet our desired deadlines. We didn’t have the time (or desire) to spend on developing our own system as we needed to concentrate on our core business. You wouldn’t try and emulate Microsoft Office so why try and build our own solution to manage the ISMS if others could do the job.
So we had a good look around at the various options and quickly realised that ISMS.online was the one for us. It’s more than just great cloud software with everything we need for our ISMS in one place. The team behind it invested their time into understanding our business and our goals and put together a package of remote adoption support. The combined service has taken us from a standing start to being able to demonstrate our working ISMS almost immediately. It is helping us move towards certification at the pace and style we want to work.”
Mark Darby is CEO of Alliantist and he said –
“We are delighted to be helping Boomerang achieve its ISO 27001 certification. Information Security is clearing growing in importance for all businesses in the supply chain, but until now its been almost impossible for smaller organisations to get these credentials, ruling them out of winning new business. ISMS.online puts affordable and trusted information security practices within the reach of all organisations, from the smallest micro business through to global enterprises and large supply chains.”
The Boomerang is traditionally recognised as a great tool for hunters. With an independent information security certification Boomerang Messaging will have another asset to its armoury for hunting in future.
