OutSystems joins CSA to ‘boost’ security credentials

Today, OutSystems announced it “boosted” its security credentials with ISO 27001, ISO 22301 and SOC 2.

As part of commitment to security best practices in cloud computing, it has become a member of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).

“Software security is one of the most critical issues that IT leaders face, and it is often one of the most challenging. These new certifications help OutSystems provide an end-to-end security strategy for organisations building applications with our low-code platform,” said José Casinha, CEO at OutSystems.

OutSystems has completed the following certifications:

  • ISO 27001: This certification, from auditor BSI, approves the OutSystems systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so it remains secure.
  • ISO 22301: This certification, also from BSI, approves the management system the company has put in place for business continuity arrangements.
  • SOC (Service Organisation Controls) 2 Type II: This attestation, from KirkpatrickPrice, demonstrates that OutSystems has selected and implemented a specific and well-defined set of security controls. The framework validates that the service provider’s data management systems are secure, available and setup to maintain the confidentiality of data.

OutSystems underwent a series of formal independent audits of its technologies, security policies and procedures, as well as its internal risk and operations controls to complete these certifications.

Jim Reaves, CEO of CSA, added: “CSA looks forward to having OutSystems share insights with our member organisations to help develop and execute on secure cloud computing best practices.”
