Global organizations should be able to trust security vendors to handle their sensitive data securely. If a security vendor fails to adequately secure customer data, it puts their customers’ businesses at risk. That’s why we are proud to say Wandera is ISO 27001 certified and EU-US Privacy Shield certified.

Wandera’s ‘privacy by design’ approach

Data privacy and security are at the core of the Wandera service. As a security service provider, Wandera’s mission is to help its customers and end users effectively manage the risks they face in an increasingly mobile world; from phishing and mobile malware to unpredictable mobile data costs and regulatory compliance obligations.

Wandera has factored privacy and security into the fundamental design of its products and processes – both internal and external – in order to ensure that the service is delivered securely and that customer and end user data is adequately protected. Wandera adheres to a security and privacy policy to manage and protect the data it processes on behalf of customers.

ISO 27001 Certification

Wandera is a ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified company, applying to the development, operations and administration of our services. The standard requires an Information Security Management System (ISMS) that is intended to bring information security under management control and gives specific requirements. Given the dynamic nature of information risk and security, the ISMS is focused on continuous feedback and improvement activities to respond to changes in the threats, vulnerabilities or impacts of incidents.

EU-US Data Privacy Shield Certification

Wandera is also Data Privacy Shield certified, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred between the European Union and the United States. It is a subset of the larger General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and it adheres to ITIL best practice procedures for internal operational and support processes. The Privacy Shield program allows companies to certify that they follow the requirements developed by the U.S Department of Commerce and the European Commission and Swiss Administration.

Wandera’s ongoing commitment to data privacy and security

Where appropriate, Wandera follows standards and procedures as defined by accredited organizations. Wandera also conducts annual reviews of partners to ensure that they continue to maintain or improve upon the standards that they have been certified against. Wandera follows best practices defined by various bodies in relation to standards and procedures.

When an organization is evaluating security vendors, certifications like these are an important consideration. They indicate that the vendor has taken appropriate precautionary measures to protect its customers’ data.

Global enterprises using the Wandera solution to protect their mobile fleets can be assured that Wandera is properly handling the personal data of individuals in the EU. As part of the certification, Wandera will go through yearly surveillance audits and certification renewals every three years.
