xMatters (www.xmatters.com), a digital service availability platform that prevents IT issues from becoming business problems, today announced it was awarded ISO 27001 security certification, achieving the milestone with zero nonconformities, a rare accomplishment. The certification applies to all parts of the xMatters Digital Services Availability Platform, as well as to its corporate IT, technical support and security and compliance teams. ISO 27001 certification tells xMatters customers and partners, whether they are working on-site or remotely, rapidly introducing or reinforcing existing digital services, the privacy and security of their data is assured.
Today, many of the world's most recognizable brands use xMatters to assure the availability of the digital customer experience and improve the cadence of new digital service introductions. With xMatters, incident management becomes embedded in the workflow of software developers and reliability engineers alike, equipping them with the information and capabilities to deliver uninterrupted customer experiences.
"xMatters is a tightly integrated part of our customers' technology infrastructures and business operations; it's critical they have total confidence in our security and privacy capabilities," said Troy McAlpin, CEO, xMatters. "This is especially important today with the increased consumer reliance on digital services, like video conferencing and food delivery, along with the distributed nature of the workforce. Business leaders need to know their teams are working in a reliable and secure infrastructure, no matter where they work."
In a recent xMatters survey, also announced today, over 300 IT professionals described the impact of consumers' greater reliance on digital services since the COVID-19 imposed stay-at-home mandates. Nearly 80% of respondents confirmed that their organization has put an even greater focus on infrastructure security and privacy.
