Equator has successfully achieved ISO 27001 security certification following an extensive external audit.

ISO 27001 is the most stringent international certification for information security management and ensures processes are in place to effectively protect and manage confidential data.

Equator received the certification following a rigorous six month audit covering all areas of security including information security, asset management, access control, incident management, business continuity and compliance.

Less than 600 companies in the UK and 3,000 worldwide are currently ISO 27001 certified.

John McLeish, managing director of Equator, said: "We are acutely aware of the importance of data confidentiality and the security of our services and infrastructure has always been a top priority.

"We are very pleased that our robust processes, which give our customers peace of mind that their valuable information assets are being effectively protected, have now been commended and certified by a trusted international authority."
