Initially, the Nixu Security Verified Certificate was created for SaaS services. It allowed companies to answer the concerns of end users by showing they had a solid set of security measures in place. Information security is especially important in systems which process vital information and may even be shared with the competition. This prompted Nixu to extend the Security Verified certification to include any system, such as mobile services or traditional Web services. Today, the certificate is a comprehensive guarantee of overall information security.
In addition to technical security, Security Verified certification ensures that services are maintained sensibly and their actual threats are taken into consideration. Typically, the certificate is awarded for a year at a time, provided that this level of security is sufficient. Even though we recommend security audits for entire systems, we will also perform audits on individual elements such as Web applications.
