Sundown Solutions has secured its second ISO certification quality standard six months after being certified ISO 27001 in November 2020.
Sundown, a four-time Microsoft Gold Partner, secured its ISO 9001 in May, which underpins the technology firm’s continual improvement programme, ensuring its clients benefit from expert technology consultancy, products and managed services.
Sundown Solutions hold ISO27001:2013 (ISMS) and ISO9001:2015(QMS) and as such both form our internal business management system which are governed by our ISO certification partners QEC UK.
We have a full supplier and partner on-boarding process which ensures external interested parties that operate with us or on our behalf are bound to work within the standards of our certification.
Our certificates and our 27001 statement of applicability are available upon request.
The additional ISO accreditation has helped Sundown solidify its UK sovereign approach to confidential computing, a key factor in data security post-Brexit.
Kelly-Ann Groves, Sundown Solutions’ chief operating officer, said. “ISO 27001 is a standard all technology companies should have as it reassures clients that data is stored in a highly secure manner. If an organisation is looking for a strategic technology partner, it’s the first accreditation they should look for.
“In addition to having high levels of security, we’re driven by continual improvement because we know our clients will ultimately benefit from our approach to quality. It’s why we wanted to secure ISO 9001 certification so soon after ISO 27001. It demonstrates that we have rigorous quality standards and put our clients at the centre of everything we do.
“We’re a rapidly growing business, and for the government and blue-chip clients we’re working with, they need to know we have robust systems and excellent quality standards in place.”
The award-winning technology company also has Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation and sits on the Crown Commercial Services Framework. It counts the NHS, National Audit Office, RNIB, College of Police and the World Health Organisation as clients.
