Mumbai, 28 May, 2014: Prime Focus Technologies (PFT), the technology subsidiary of Prime Focus Limited (BSE code: 532748), today announced that it has been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognized, internationally accepted independent security standard and PFT has earned it for the hybrid cloud technology, content processes and data centers serving its CLEAR Media ERP platform and Cloud-enabled Media Services. PFT becomes the first media and entertainment industry focused cloud technology solutions provider to achieve this certification.

 

An ISO 27001 certification guaranteeing information security and business assurance is all the more relevant in the media and entertainment industry because of heightened concerns over content integrity. The concerns are manifold when it involves Cloud-enabled storage and media services. However in the last few years content businesses have realized that companies like PFT can invest in security with a focus that is difficult for many businesses to achieve on their own. This investment has helped build a hybrid cloud infrastructure and suite of media services with robust data protection that the global media and entertainment industry can leverage.

 

This certification provides independently validated business assurance that PFT’s team can effectively operate and manage information security risks. The audit exercise involved in-depth interviews and strict review of areas like physical security, access control, risk management, business continuity, and security best practices. The exhaustive audit concluded that PFT’s ISMS protocols meet the stringent controls required to achieve compliance with ISO standards. PFT’s certificate is issued by the British Standards Institution (BSI), the national standards body of the UK, and one of the premier accreditation firms in the world.

 

“One of our highest priorities is ensuring the security and integrity of our customers’ content. Securing ISO 27001 certification is a significant and important accomplishment for us,” said, Ramki Sankaranarayanan, Founder and CEO, Prime Focus Technologies. “PFT’s clients use our CLEAR Media ERP platform and Cloud-enabled Media Services to manage their content business which involves

 

 

 

time and revenue critical operations. Data security is non-negotiable for us and for the entire media and entertainment industry reeling under piracy. We are delighted to offer our clients absolute peace of mind that comes from the assurance of having an ISO 27001 certification”.

PFT is committed to ongoing development and maintenance of a robust ISMS that an independent, third-party auditor will regularly audit and certify.
