Email platform SparkPost has been granted granted ISO 27001 certification for its corporate systems and cloud products — an apparent reaffirmation of the firm’s security and compliance practices and infrastructure.
The ISO certification, states James Sipe, vice president, compliance and IT security at SparkPost, makes it easier for partners to do business with the firm — "from procurement to contracting, legal to auditing.”
The ISO 27001:2013 certificate covers SparkPost’s Information Security Management System (ISMS), which supports the systems underlying SparkPost Cloud Email Sending, all email analytics products, and Taxi for Email solutions.
In addition, the organizational coverage includes the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC), Information Security, Information Technology (IT), Infrastructure Operations, Product Development, Facilities, Sales & Marketing, and General & Administrative teams affecting the ISMS.
SparkPost claims to send 40% of the world’s email. It serves such enterprise-level email marketers as The New York Times, Zillow, Adobe and Booking.com.
