This certification demonstrates that Pharos has met rigorous international standards to help ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Pharos Systems International information corporate assets as well as Pharos Cloud, Blueprint, and Uniprint products.

Pharos has implemented security measures and countermeasures that protect it from unauthorized access or compromise and IT personnel were found to be conscientious and knowledgeable in best practices.
Compliance with this internationally recognized standard confirms that Pharos’ security management program is comprehensive and follows leading best practices. This certification demonstrates Pharos’ continued commitment to information security at every level and ensures customers that the security of their data and information has been addressed, implemented, and properly controlled in all areas of our organization.
