Casino aggregation platform provider Iforium has become the latest firm to achieve ISO 27001 certification in 2020, following Play’n Go and Stakelogic in achieving the green-light.

Relating to the operations behind the firm’s Gameflex platform, Iforium’s internal process were tasked with surpassing rigorous testing against the standard’s strict assessment criteria, ensuring it met the 114 controls and 7 clauses required over a nine-month period.

Following a series of internal audits undertaken prior to the certification process, the standard ensures that Iforium’s senior management, as well as all its operations and controls, are fully compliant with the data protection practices and procedures set by the International Organisation for Standardisation and the International Electrotechnical Commission.

As a result of the certification the company said it a media statement that it can “demonstrate to its tier one operator partners that its global operations are undertaken with the highest certification available for data protection and system security”.

It is also said that Iforium will now be focused upon a significant expansion of its platform across a number of globally regulated markets, with regulators such as the Swiss Federal Gaming Board requiring full ISO 27001 compliance prior to entry.

Andrew Cairns, COO at Iforium, explained: “We are delighted to be awarded ISO 27001 certification for the operations behind the industry’s largest and most popular aggregation platform. We see this as the perfect endorsement to Iforium’s commitment to the security of its systems and client data reflecting the hard work and dedication by the entire Iforium team in this area.

“By committing ourselves to external audits of both our systems and processes, we are able to highlight our credentials as a forward-thinking supplier, as well as setting the highest standards of compliance we believe all aggregators should adhere to.”

The ISO 27001 certification follows Iforium expanding its regulated European presence, as well as entering the LatAm and US markets for the first time following Gameflex integration agreements in both Mexico and New Jersey.
