Joins Global Community Committed to Ensuring the Security of Internet Systems Internally and for Its Customers
OutSystems, the global leader in low-code application development, announced it has become a CIS SecureSuite® Member. CIS is a globally recognized center of excellence for internet security whose members are actively involved in the ongoing identification of internet threats, and whose expertise helps the organization identify, design, promote, and support best practice guidance for securing systems and data.
“OutSystems has set the security standard for application development with features specifically designed for the enterprise and those organizations working with sensitive, core, and customer data,” said José Casinha, OutSystems CISO. “OutSystems already has a rigorous security practice in place, which includes SOC2 Type II compliance, multiple ISO certifications, and ongoing compliance with data and cloud security organizational guidelines, all helping us maintain and grow a list of nearly 200 security checks built into our platform. The addition of CIS SecureSuite membership will allow us to share our own knowledge around application and cloud security, while accessing a tremendous amount of real-time information and expertise to help secure ours, and our customers’, internet resources more effectively.”
CIS Benchmarks™, an important component of CIS SecureSuite, are recommended as industry-accepted system hardening standards and are used by organizations as guidance for meeting compliance requirements mandated by industry or government entities. Access to these standards will help ensure OutSystems builds and updates its platform with the latest configurations and best practices for cybersecurity as they relate to specific industries such as banking and finance, insurance, and healthcare.
“We welcome OutSystems as a CIS SecureSuite Member, and look forward to collaborating with them to help enhance their cybersecurity posture,” said Curtis Dukes, CIS Executive Vice President & General Manager, Security Best Practices.
OutSystems deep commitment to system and data security is evident in the depth and breadth of its security program, which includes support for OAuth, 2FA security, and data encryption. The platform also supports SOC 2 and SOC 3 compliance, and in 2018, the company announced OutSystems Sentry, an additional security, risk management, and proactive monitoring solution for the cloud, making OutSystems a SOC2 Type II compliant low-code cloud platform.
