BigCommerce, the leading
ecommerce SaaS platform for fast-growing and established brands, today
announced that it has received the prestigious ISO/IEC 27001:2013
certification, the international standard outlining best practices for
information security management systems. With this certification,
BigCommerce becomes one of only a small handful of SaaS ecommerce
platforms to undergo this rigorous certification process.
BigCommerce’s certification, completed by cybersecurity advisory group Coalfire
ISO and evaluated by an independent quality assurance organization,
ensures that the company has established a formal set of policies,
procedures, processes and systems that manage information risks for its
digital and physical presence.
“Receiving the ISO 27001 certification demonstrates to our merchants and
partners that BigCommerce has put the full spectrum of security best
practices in place. Furthermore, it indicates that we have a mature,
managed and verifiable approach to information security that encompasses
not just risk, but also compliance and governance,” said Brian Dhatt,
chief technology officer at BigCommerce. “In going through the arduous
process to receive this certification, we hope to signal to our clients
and prospects that we are fully committed to securing their data, and
that the BigCommerce SaaS platform is architected and operated in a
highly-secure and reliable manner.”
The ISO 27001 certification is the latest in a series of commitments
BigCommerce is making to its information security, compliance and
regulation practices. In January, BigCommerce announced its migration
to Google Cloud Platform in order to offer merchants additional
security measures, including best-in-class DDoS attack protection.
