WP Engine proves the maturity of the security program and the power of WordPress, meeting international standards for information security management
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WP Engine, the world’s most trusted WordPress technology company, today announced that it has received ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for its Information Security Management System (ISMS). This certification demonstrates WP Engine’s ongoing commitment to information security at all levels and ensures that the security of customer data and information has been addressed, implemented and properly monitored in all areas of the organization and of the platform.
Spurred by growing demands for digital acceleration and cost efficiency, midsize businesses and large enterprises are increasingly turning to WordPress. Because WordPress is open source, it can be a common target for hackers and requires careful management for effective protection. Businesses need assurance that their selected WordPress platform partner has strong security measures and controls in place to enable their customers and site visitor protection while running their websites at peak performance.
Customers can now have even greater confidence in WP Engine and the company’s enterprise-grade security solutions, with ISO 27001:2013 certification added to its SOC 2 Type II report in 2020.
“Security is critical for all organizations that use WordPress to grow their digital presence from SMB to enterprise,” said Ramadass Prabhakar, senior vice president of engineering at WP Engine. “We are proud to offer businesses the peace of mind that comes with highly respected security standards such as SOC-2 which we achieved in 2020, and now the internationally renowned ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification.”
ISO 27001:2013 is an information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards, and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). WP Engine’s certification was issued by A-LIGN, an independent and accredited certification body based in the United States after passing a formal audit process. This certification is proof that WP Engine has met rigorous international standards in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the WP Engine hosting platform, including managed WordPress hosting, enterprise WordPress, and Atlas headless WordPress platform.
