Legal software company Peppermint  has demonstrated its commitment to protecting its clients by joining the Cyber Essentials scheme.
The scheme is backed by the National Cyber Security Centre on behalf of the UK Government and shows that Peppermint maintains an excellent set of controls to protect users of its suite of cloud solutions.
The certification is the latest security development by Peppermint which, as a cloud provider, is constantly evolving its processes in order to mitigate the risks around cyber security for its Microsoft-backed technology.
John Corfield, Cloud Product Manager at Peppermint, said: “Joining the Cyber Essentials scheme is an added reassurance for our customers that we treat cyber security seriously and therefore our hosted solution is a secure environment for their data.”
In order to achieve the Cyber Essentials accreditation, Peppermint Technology had to verify that it has the following controls in place: secure configuration; boundary firewalls and internet gateways; access control; patch management and malware protection.
