Rimini Street, Inc. has become the first and only ISO 27001-certified third-party enterprise software support services provider. The ISO/IEC (News - Alert) 27001:2005 certification, which Rimini Street recently received, is an International standard for implementing and managing security controls that protect information assets.
Prior to obtaining the latest worldwide ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification for support services, Rimini Street was also the only third-party enterprise software support provider to achieve ISO 9001:2008 quality system certification. These certifications ensure that client data are protected by one of the rigorous International security controls.
As a third-party provider of enterprise software support services, Rimini Street has been offering an innovational program that redefines enterprise support services by allowing Oracle and SAP (News - Alert) licensees to save up to 90 percent on total support costs over a decade, including saving 50 percent on annual support fees.
With the help of Rimini Street’s program, clients can remain on their current software release without any required upgrades or migrations for at least ten years, cites the company.
To date, Rimini Street has been providing third-party maintenance and support services for enterprise software, including SAP AG’s business suite and BusinessObjects software and Oracle (News - Alert) Corporation’s Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, E-Business suite, Oracle database and Hyperion software.
Rimini Street successfully completed the worldwide ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification in conjunction with Securastar, an information security consulting firm specializing in ISO 27001, and Bureau Veritas (News - Alert), the company’s independent auditor.
According to officials with Rimini Street, the certification process verified that a detailed framework for security design, implementation and management are in place, continuously monitored and improved.
In addition, this certification process also verified that a robust framework exists for information security risk assessment, threat identification and rapid response.
The regular follow up surveillance audits by the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification body will ensure the clients and partners of Rimini Street that rigorous security controls are in place to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their information.
