TechnologyOne recommended for first and highest security certification for Software as a Service (SaaS)

From its Brisbane R&D centre, TechnologyOne is a leader in the sort of software innovation that is changing how companies function.

TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE), Australia’s largest enterprise software provider, has announced today that it is the first and only company in Australia to have its enterprise Software as a Service solution recommended for certification to the highest standard by the Federal Government.

TechnologyOne’s Executive Chairman, Mr Adrian Di Marco says the business has been endorsed as the safest and most trusted provider of enterprise SaaS by being recommended for the IRAP (Australian Federal Government’s Information Security Registered Assessors Program) certification.

IRAP Assessors recommended the Federal Government’s Certification Authority certify TechnologyOne’s SaaS solution as compliant to the Australian Government’s Information Security Manual (ISM) and be included on the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) Certified Cloud Services List.

“This endorses TechnologyOne as the safest and most trusted provider of enterprise SaaS in the world,” Mr Di Marco said.

“In the wake of the recent malware attacks across Europe, and with Australia’s investment in cloud solutions is set to approach $800 million by 2019*, it has never been more important to verify the highest level of security for software provided and managed from the cloud.

“Businesses and governments must demand that their cloud software providers demonstrate the highest levels of security and data protection, to ensure business continuity.

“TechnologyOne has taken this step because there is too much at stake to overlook the importance of cloud security. It’s non-negotiable, especially as we approach the digital revolution when a cloud first, mobile first world is the norm.

“Having our software accredited to the highest standards possible enables our customers to acquire their security accreditations too,” Mr Di Marco said.

Elaborating on the measures TechnologyOne has taken around cloud security, Mr Di Marco said “For us, it’s simply a matter of reiterating to our customers the multi-tiered security measures that come linked to the TechnologyOne SaaS solution.

“Automatic, highly secure and fail safe. This is the premise behind cloud technology of the future. There’s no excuse for omitting these measures in today’s cloud environment or taking short cuts,” Mr Di Marco said.
