In addition, through this process all NOC-associated business continuity response capabilities have been fully tested and certified.
“Aviat NOC customers require the highest levels of security and availability for their networks," said Michael Pangia, Aviat Networks president and CEO. "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 said it is the only microwave specialist offering managed NOC services with ISO 27001 certification. 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 took 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.
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 ISMS certification.
