Brainshark Receives Security Designations Providing Customers With Added Safety Assurance

ISO27001 and CSA STAR Certifications Provide Third-Party Security Standards Verification

WALTHAM, Mass. — August 17, 2017 — Brainshark, Inc., delivering SaaS-based sales enablement and readiness solutions, today announced it has received ISO27001 and Cloud Security Alliance Security Trust and Assurance Registry (CSA STAR) certifications indicating the company meets a high threshold of security standards. While all data transferred to and from the company’s servers has always been protected, these third-party certifications differentiate Brainshark as going above and beyond to meet security needs.

ISO27001 is a specification for types of information security management systems. Organizations that meet the standard may be certified compliant by an independent and accredited certification body on successful completion of a formal compliance audit.

The CSA STAR certification is a rigorous third-party independent assessment of the security of a cloud service provider. The technology-neutral certification leverages the requirements of the ISO27001 standard together with the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix, a specified set of criteria that measures the capability levels of the cloud service.

“Organizations using cloud providers or that outsource their data in any way have understandable concerns about security when choosing a vendor,” said Chris Caruso, chief technology officer at Brainshark. “For our customers, these certifications provide further verification of our utmost commitment to security and trust. This commitment is part of the reason why so many companies across a number of industries – from tech and financial services to insurance and manufacturing – rely on Brainshark to improve sales readiness and performance.”
