Security is critical for your data and IBM Blue Box offers key capabilities designed to help you construct a security-rich private cloud environment.

Our team works with independent auditors to meet the industry’s most stringent requirements to provide an attestation you can depend on—that's why we're happy to announce that IBM Blue Box clouds are now ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 27018:2014 certified. Our team has also successfully completed both SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3 external audits.

Here are some details on these milestones:

  • ISO 27001:2013 certification covers numerous security controls from human resources to information security. The ISO27001 standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing and documenting the information security management systems (ISMS) requirements for implementing security controls.
  • ISO 27018:2014 certification provides a framework to ensure security of Personal Identifiable Information (PII) in the cloud environment. ISO27018 is the first International Standard on safeguarding personal data in the cloud, and ensures controls are implemented that define how we handle PII.
  • SOC 2&3 reports evaluate our operational controls with respect to criteria set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Trust Services Principles. The Trust Services Principles define adequate control systems and establish industry standards for services providers such as IBM Blue Box to safeguard their customers' data and information. We can provide the SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3 reports on request.

In addition, our team also has HIPAA-enabled offerings available for your healthcare workloads. IBM Blue Box integrates security into the core of its design and is committed to providing you a security-rich, private OpenStack cloud. These certifications and reports are a step along our journey of ensuring your cloud environment is safe and secure as we strive to help you achieve your cloud security control objectives now and in the future.
