TraceLink Inc., a network-based platform company with the world’s largest integrated digital supply network for life sciences, today announced it has achieved ISO/IEC 27017:2015 certification, a widely recognized international standard covering information security controls for cloud services.
ISO/IEC 27017 builds upon ISO/IEC 27002:2013 by providing an additional 47 controls and related implementation guidance addressing cloud-specific threats and risks.

As a SaaS provider, TraceLink meets the requirements of both roles for the complete control set to ensure information is protected in the cloud environment.
“TraceLink is committed to safeguarding its customers by ensuring that the critical data they entrust to our cloud-hosted environment is protected by the highest industry standards,” said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO, TraceLink. "For TraceLink, this is a significant milestone that demonstrates our continued adherence to information security best practices and our dedication to keeping our security capabilities fully up to date."
To achieve this certification, TraceLink underwent a rigorous audit process performed by A-LIGN, an independent and accredited certification body.
