Markforged achieves ISO 27001 Certification for its 3D Printing platforms.
ISO 27001 is an information security management system (ISMS) standard published 15 years ago, in October 2005, by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The certification ensures that effective security controls and policies are in place – policies that include all legal, physical and technical controls involved in a company’s information risk management processes.
In this specific case, the certification concerns the Markforged Eiger cloud additive manufacturing platform, 3D printing hardware, fleet management software, and information governance policies.
“We believe that every product and engineering decision we make has a security component to it, and our customers and their data are at the center,” said David Benhaim, CTO, CISO, Markforged. “We are setting the standard for additive manufacturing, and our strategic investment in maintaining a robust security program and completion of this internationally recognized certification process demonstrates our steadfast commitment to security and the protection of our customers’ data.”
Today, professionals across defense, military, top-secret R&D, and aerospace industries leveraged the American company’s cloud-first software strategy. This makes them more competitive as they are able to explore a wide range of applications with AM. However, the use of such technology comes with a more urgent need: the one to protect the spectrum of information security requirements, with highly sensitive data that the technology requires. The ISO 27001 certification comes into play to guarantee business continuity and the continuous management and mitigation of risks.
Compliance with this standard illustrates Markforged’s willingness to monitoring adherence to best practices through repeatable processes including data transmission, storage, logging, access controls, operations, cryptography, management of third parties, incident management, tracking of threats, and continuous improvement.
