For contemporary data-driven businesses, while data management and system integration play pivotal roles in operational success, ensuring data security best practices is an even more crucial requirement. The Alumio iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service) doesn’t just help businesses integrate all their systems, SaaS, and applications, but it also centralizes the data from all these integrated systems on one secure cloud-native platform. While Alumio already provides several crucial data security features and ensures privacy compliance with key legislations like GDPR, it has now doubled down on its security offerings by successfully becoming an ISO 27001-Certified iPaaS. Let’s explore the added security benefits of this new development!

The ISO 27001 advantage of the Alumio iPaaS

Rapid technological advancements and evolving consumer demands characterize the current dynamic business environment. In this climate, the ability to seamlessly integrate new software solutions and applications while ensuring real-time data exchange is crucial for future-proof growth. This can involve businesses having to integrate an ERP system with an e-commerce platform or a CRM, PIM, POS, Marketing automation software, or any of the many other popular cloud apps and SaaS.

However, as organizations attempt to connect two or a multitude of these systems, the risk of data silos, security breaches, and cyber threats escalates and becomes more challenging to manage, along with the integrations themselves. In this case, an integration platform that has achieved a globally recognized security certification like ISO 27001 is deemed a reliable solution to build a secure, integrated data ecosystem.

Building secure system integrations with an ISO 27001 iPaaS

The Alumio iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service) is a next-gen, API-driven middleware that empowers organizations to seamlessly integrate all their disparate systems, applications, and data sources on one central and secure cloud-native platform. It helps streamline, synchronize, and automate data exchange between all integrated systems within an organization from one user-friendly, low-code interface.

As an ISO 27001-Certified iPaaS, Alumio offers several crucial security benefits when building integrations. This includes:

  • Robust encryption protocols to ensure data exchanged between systems is protected from unauthorized access and to help maintain data integrity and confidentiality.
  • Secure authentication and access controls via role-based access (RBAC) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) to verify the identity of users and restrict information access to authorized personnel only.
  • Automated logging to capture detailed records of user activities, system events, and data transactions to facilitate compliance auditing, incident response, and visibility into the data integration processes.
  • Real-time monitoring enables real-time detection of security threats, integration errors, data inconsistencies, and anomalous behavior by monitoring network traffic, system logs, and user activities.

Despite being a newly developed next-gen integration solution, all of the aforementioned platform security features, among others, have enabled the Alumio iPaaS to achieve an ISO 27001 certification. This indicates that Alumio meets the highest levels of global data security standards and solidifies the platform’s compliance with key privacy regulations like GDPR. This also means that each business system, application, or data source that’s integrated via the Alumio iPaaS can now benefit (and be assured) from the highest standards of data protection.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard that outlines the requirements for implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Developed and maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the standard is also known as ISO/IEC 27001. Being ISO 21007-Certified indicates that the platform provides a structured framework for establishing robust security measures, ensuring compliance, and mitigating the risk of costly breaches.
