Why ISO 27001:2013 Certification for your Software Vendor should be important to you?

Software and Network Security has taken a new dimension as never before!

Software and Network Security can be a demon when not tamed, giving sleepless nights, service interruption and causing severe damage to any business. At the same time, it can be a soothing musical note when harnessed with systematic implementation of 27001:2013.

What is ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and what does it mean to you

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is the International Standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (Information Security Management System). Achieving accredited certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates that a company is following information security best practice, and delivers an independent, expert assessment of whether your data is adequately protected.

A typical vendor can claim that it follows the standard to give you a peace of mind but there is more to it.

A Vendor’s claim of compliance to best practice is only a small part of the story…

Almost any vendor can claim to have a sound and secure environment and I am not implying that their claims are not genuine. They may think so but their claim lacks one important component; verification. Certification to a well tried and tested standard such as ISO 27001:2013 offers assurance to our clients that our internal processes meet the rigorous levels required by the standard. The independent certification bodies have keen eyes and draw on a rich set of experience to identify anomalies and test the organisational practices within the context of modern security standards.  This was the challenge accepted by Tickit Systems. We opened up our management processes, software development methodology, deployment disciplines, backup procedures, security measures and BCP policy to objective scrutiny by undergoing the certification process.

And the good news is that Tickit Systems is now ISO 27001:2013 certified company and ever-ready to share your success story.

Why On Demand?

The latest version of Tickit is delivered over the internet, on demand. The application is hosted on our fast and reliable servers and this presents our clients with several benefits:

 

There is no need to install any software on your servers or PCs, all you need is any standard internet browser like IE 6 or 7 and above or Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and above to use Tickit on demand.

 

  • Tickit on demand updates and upgrades can easily be deployed to your instance of Tickit saving your IT team time.

 

  • Tickit on demand is hosted professionally in a safe, scalable and fault tolerant environment. Data is partitioned into a per client database with strict access policies.

This means you have a simple, intuitive risk and compliance application that can very rapidly be deployed across your business.

Active Directory

Many clients do not know that Tickit On Demand has a security verification feature that allows us to confirm your userid and password with your own Active Directory environment. Whilst that may sound technical and difficult, all it really means is that users no longer need to remember different user ids and passwords for Tickit On Demand; you could just use the same ones that you currently use to access your network. This allows your own corporate security policy to apply to your Tickit On Demand access, and it means that Tickit On Demand users just need to remember a single user id and password.

That’s A Wrap! – RMIA National Conference 2015

Tickit on Demand were once again honoured to be an exhibition partner at the RMIA National Conference 2015. Held in the beautiful city of Adelaide in South Australia, the event served as a great platform in the facilitation of knowledge sharing and networking with key risk management professionals across the Asia Pacific Region.  Many delegates and risk professionals from all around Australasia gathered  at the Adelaide Oval for a dynamic line up of key industry speakers and the best minds in the industry.

There was much interest in Tickit on Demand Exhibition among the conference delegates. We had the pleasure of giving a number of demos of the software, with considerable interest shown in the intuitiveness and ease of use of Tickit on Demand.

We would  like to say a big thank you to RMIA and the staff who organised the event. The conference a great success! We were delighted to meet many of the people there and we hope that  some of you will soon be apart of the Tickit on Demand family.
