Globecast achieves ISO 27001 security certification for Sainte-Assise teleport

Media solutions provider Globecast has achieved ISO 27001 security certification for its Sainte-Assise teleport, located near Paris.

The company said that it has also achieved ISO 14001 (environmental management) and ISO 50001 (energy efficiency). All three certifications are for three years.

The teleport is a key part of Globecast’s connectivity network, and complements sites in LA and London, along with Media Centres in Singapore, London and LA.

Renaud Presty, security director at Globecast, said: “Gaining ISO 27001 certification for our Sainte-Assise teleport is a key part of the continuously increasing security efforts across the whole company. It has established itself as an essential reference in terms of security and is a core part of conversations with existing and potential customers. Above all, it defines a methodological framework by building a Security Management System, the objective of which is the continuous improvement of the security of our systems.”

The company also has recently received security assessment from Trusted Partner Network (TPN) across its complete Asian, UK and French operations, including TPN renewal of its Digital Cinema business in France.

Of this, Presty said: “Achieving ISO 27001 is a major achievement and requires very diligent work, understanding precisely what work we had to do to meet the requirement and implement those changes across all security aspects, including, of course, IT. We have also developed an ongoing action plan to ensure absolute compliance. Alongside our recent TPN certifications, we have achieved a powerful, market-leading position when it comes to every aspect of security across today’s hyper-connected world. 

“This is vital for customer confidence, especially given the volume and importance of the content that we handle daily.”
