Lithuanian IoT provider Gurtam has obtained ISO/IEC 27001 certification, proving the reliability of its information security management systems and data processes.

Gurtam is a software developer and provider of GPS tracking and IoT products and services.

ISO/IEC 27001 is the go-to standard for establishing and implementing information security management systems. These systems preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process and give confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.

The certificate gives companies tools to safeguard their assets, including financial information, intellectual property, employee data and information entrusted by third parties. The ISO/IEC 27001 certification also covers human resource management and procurement management processes, underscoring Gurtam’s dedication to following ISO standards and best practices across the entire organisation.

To obtain ISO/IEC 27001, Gurtam underwent a series of audits conducted by Cert, a Slovakian auditing company. Cert experts confirmed that Gurtam’s information security management systems and internal processes met the requirements set out by the ISO.

Data security is a priority for businesses of all sizes and across industries and, with the number of data breaches continuing to increase, it is more of a priority. This certification reflects Gurtam’s efforts to maintain high standard of cyber security and resilience in all aspects of the company’s operations, from the development and distribution of telematics and IoT, to partner and customer support, which is all the more important during this cyber-crime wave.

“Our GPS tracking software products are used in more than 150 countries, and we make every possible effort to ensure that the Developed by Gurtam label is synonymous with impeccable quality,” said Aliaksandr Kuushynau from Gurtam. “Earning the ISO/IEC 27001 certificate sends a strong message to our existing or potential partners and customers that our team is equipped with the latest knowledge, tools and resources to keep information secure at all times. Gurtam will continue to invest in the newest technology and know-how to ensure its software, company operations and processes meet or exceed world-class standards for data protection.”

Gurtam is a European software developer and provider of telematics and IoT. Established in 2002, the company has offices in Boston, Dubai and Buenos Aires, with headquarters in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Gurtam’s portfolio has four products for GPS tracking and IoT – Wialon, LeaseControl, Flespi and GPS-Trace. The company’s flagship platform, Wialon, tracks 3.5 million mobile and stationary assets in more than 150 countries, via over 2400 telematics and IoT service providers.
