Kyocera Document Solutions Inc has revealed this week that it has obtained the first ISMS Cloud Security Certification in the Document Device industry.
ISMS Cloud Security Certification is a third-party certification for cloud security, which is defined as “an add-on specification to complement preparations against risks specific to cloud services.”
The prerequisite to receiving this certification is to obtain ISO/IEC 27001 certification, “requirements for a holistic information security management system that protects important data from various threats” as well as mitigating risk.
Kyocera’s statement explained that, “With cloud services becoming more widespread across various industries, tighter security control and management is required in accordance with the latest international standards regarding data security and the handling of personal information.”
Compliance with security standards is “necessary”, particularly when important information is being handled, such as in companies and public offices, Kyocera explained, “and thus the need for objective standards that certify the control system of each cloud service operator is growing.”
The OEM has expressed its ongoing efforts “to achieve comprehensive control of security for data created in customers’ document workflows” and says that it has “obtained ISMS Cloud Security Certification ahead of other companies in the industry as part of its efforts to provide safe, secure and flexible cloud services to customers.” Kyocera also promised it would “continue to enhance the quality of its document solution services, thereby contributing to the growth of its customers’ businesses.”
