Glooko announced today that it received ISO 27001 certification for its data management and remote patient monitoring platforms.
Palo Alto, California-based Glooko develops remote patient monitoring and chronic care management products. These include data management technologies for insulin delivery devices.
ISO 27001, an international compliance framework, serves as the international security standard for protecting customer information. Compliance confirms that Glooko offers a comprehensive security management program and follows gold-standard practices, according to a news release.
“Achieving this internationally recognized standard is evidence of Glooko’s commitment to best-in-class business processes and security operations,” said Glooko CEO Russ Johannesson. “This certification enables us to demonstrate to our current and future customers that we take the protection of health data seriously.”
SGS-TÜV Saar served as Glooko’s independent, third-party ISO 27001 auditor. The certification ensures that Glooko has all required controls in place to ensure the security of customer data and its software platforms.
The company said that achieving ISO 27001 allows it to assure customers that patient health data remains secure from unauthorized access or compromise.
“This certification allows Glooko to meet compliance expectations for customers and partners who are looking for independent assurance of our security practices,” said Prakash Menon, Glooko CTO. “After going through a 12-month implementation and auditing process, we’ve fully implemented all ISO 27001 processes and controls. Customers should expect this level of commitment from any vendor that handles their data and we are happy to be able to provide this assurance to them.”
