TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 19, 2015) - Symbility Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE: SY), a global software company dedicated to developing applications for the insurance industry, announced that it has received third-party ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for its global operations and infrastructure -- including the development, management, maintenance and delivery of Symbility's products, services, applications and data. Symbility also has achieved ISO/IEC 27034 conformance that demonstrates the company's continuing commitment to apply security techniques during the software development process.
The ISO 27001:2013 standard specifies a formal information security management system that identifies, designs and implements the security controls necessary to help ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets, including customer data.

Being certified by an independent, internationally recognized accrediting body like PECB gives our customers peace of mind and assures them that data security is built in to all aspects of our business, from strategic planning to day-to-day operations."

"Preventing similar instances and ensuring the safety of all customer and partner data are a top priority for Symbility. By achieving ISO/IEC 27001:201 certification, Symbility becomes a member of a select group of companies that includes the likes of Google, Microsoft and other security leaders.
