“As the first global, full-lifecycle telecom MSP providing communications and technology solutions to more than 1,400 enterprises worldwide, Advantage takes threats to the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of its clients’ information seriously,” said Advantage CEO, David Gardner. “This accomplishment exemplifies our commitment to empowering organizations with reliable, vetted telecom solutions from a worldwide network of service providers for whom security is of paramount importance.”

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an information security management system standard published in October 2013 by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

The scope of Advantage’s ISMS ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification applies to its proprietary internal ERP and its Command CenterSM user portal, covering Information Technology, Legal, Software Development, Human Resources, and Product Management.

“This certification ensures our clients that the security of their data and information has been addressed, implemented, and properly controlled in all areas of our organization,” added Gardner.
