MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today announced that it has attained ISO 27001 Security Certification, the only internationally recognized standard for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). This verifies that Aviat's primary and backup Network Operation Centers (NOCs) have the infrastructure and processes to protect customer information and equipment assets with a high degree of security. In addition, through this process all NOC-associated Business Continuity (i.e., Disaster Recovery) response capabilities have been fully tested and certified.
"Aviat NOC customers require the highest levels of security and availability for their networks," stated Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "ISO 27001 certification assures customers that Aviat Networks will meet those requirements, and this critical achievement demonstrates commitment to our customers and the networks that they trust us to maintain. It testifies to the lengths to which Aviat Networks will go to support the security requirements of our NOC customers."
Aviat Networks is the only microwave specialist offering Managed NOC Services with ISO 27001 Certification, providing great peace of mind to its customers and partners who depend on the Company for business continuity and mission-critical capabilities. The integrity of our comprehensive security management program, operational controls and workflows and best practices is unsurpassed in the microwave industry.
Using the ISO 27001 framework, Aviat Networks made an information security risk assessment of its physical and virtual assets, formulated a plan to mitigate those risks and implemented the plan to safeguard the Company and its customers from possible exploits by hackers or unauthorized users. Bureau Veritas, an independent third party, found that Aviat has taken proper precautions to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all customer information assets in its management network and, via this extensive analysis, certified the Company to ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
"Through a detailed ISMS implementation process, Aviat achieved ISO 27001 Certification showing it has secure and reliable NOC solutions," said Dave Anders, president and CEO of SecuraStar, an ISO 27001 consulting firm. "A thorough risk assessment was performed to evaluate and treat risk to assets within the NOC, giving reasonable assurance to Aviat clients that the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their information is constantly being assessed and protected."
ISO 27001 is an information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world's largest developer of voluntary international standards, and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Of the millions of companies that possess ISO certificates, less than 1,000 in the United States have accomplished ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System certification.
