FourKites meets ISO standards for information security

April 29, 2022
The achievement includes organization’s 27001, 27017, and 27018 certifications, guaranteeing enterprise-grade cloud security and data privacy that provide partners with piece of mind.

The International Standards Organization (ISO) recently certified that supply chain visibility platform FourKites meets its ISO 27001 standard for information security, including cloud service security (ISO 27017) and data privacy (ISO 27018).

FourKites says the achievement is part of its ongoing pursuit of meeting the industry’s “most recent and stringent security standards.”

To qualify, an independent audit committee confirmed that FourKites meets a set of requirements around security and privacy. ISO 27017 provides guidelines for information security controls applicable to and specific to the provisioning and use of cloud services, while ISO 27018 establishes commonly accepted controls and guidelines for implementing measures to protect personally identifiable information (PII) for the public cloud computing environment. Meanwhile, ISO 27001 mandates controls for the establishment, maintenance and certification of an information security management system (ISMS).

“Meeting these standards is a testament to FourKites’ ongoing commitment to go above and beyond when it comes to securing our platform, which ingests more than 250 terabytes of data each month,” said Mathew Elenjickal, FourKites founder and CEO. “Safe and secure data sharing has tremendous benefits across the supply chain, including more accurate business planning and risk mitigation, higher customer satisfaction and retention, and improved employee morale.”

Adherence to ISO 27017 and 27018 is the latest validation of FourKites’ rigorous security efforts, including its comprehensive General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) privacy program, which applies in regions where it is not required and incorporates the Schrems II ruling, according to the company.

“Our supply chain customers and partners around the globe can rest assured that FourKites uses the strongest and most secure standards in the industry to protect their valuable data,” Elenjickal added.

FourKites delivers real-time insights to customers around the globe, leveraging patented artificial intelligence based on 150 factors, including weather, traffic, and real-time data from GPS, ELD telematics networks, mobile devices, AIS, and more. The company offers out-of-the-box dashboards and reports, automated and customizable notifications that leverage geofencing and temperature tracking, and SKU-level visibility to track multimodal shipments, even when they’re split across multiple carriers.
