Dalet Receives Data Security Certification

Dalet Digital Media Systems said it has achieved ISO/SEC 27001:2013 information security management certification, which is a family of international standards designed to keep information assets secure. With this new certification, the company will develop an information security management system (ISMS) that meets the highest level of security practices across Dalet’s internal development processes, its product line and its practices.

The company said earning the ISO 27001:2013 certification is a continuation of Dalet’s pledge to comply with important standards, which started with ISO 9001 certification four years ago and has been maintained ever since.

Rami Pinku, Dalet Deputy General Manager, R&D Operations, said that with the media world becoming more dependent on IT, data security and media protection are key concerns for management and facility owners.

“Security has been at the forefront of Dalet development for quite some time and our commitment does not stop at our own internal processes,” said Pinku. “Security process are embedded within the products and solutions we develop following the strictest guidelines on the planet to ensure customers have proper and total control over their valuable assets.”

Dalet’s developers are now trained with a security-first state of mind.

Strictly adhering to the ISO/SEC 27001:2013 guidelines, Dalet has set policies and procedures that protect its internal development platforms as well as the products it develops like Dalet Galaxy. Dedicated security modules embedded within the Dalet Galaxy platform include agents that detect abnormal usages of content and systems, proactively managing and mitigating risks for customers following a security framework of proven best practices.

“Our developers are trained with a security-first state of mind; we perform continuous static code analysis to identify potential security risks and address them on the spot,” said Pinku. “Periodic penetration tests are also conducted on our software by third-party security experts like, Cyberwatch. The information we gather through data auditing capabilities and recommended best practices is shared directly with our customers.”

Dalet has hired Cyberwatch, a renowned cybersecurity company specialized in IT vulnerabilities, to perform advanced testing on internal and product platforms, to find and fix any possible vulnerabilities.

“Cyberwatch conducts regular preemptive penetration tests on Dalet’s products,” said Maxime Alay-Edine, President, Cyberwatch. “This approach simulates cyber-attacks in real conditions on Dalet’s software to identify possible threats. Dalet’s developers are well trained in Secure Software Engineering and are able to fix the issues found quickly. As a result, Dalet has built a culture on how to handle cyber-threats and provides far safer solutions to its customers.”
