Accounting software provider Voly enhances data security

The yachting and multi-asset industry’s leading accounting software provider Voly has announced that it has enhanced data security by achieving certification in the internationally recognised ISO 27001 Management Standard.

For the past few months, Voly I.T & Development team have been working closely with the independent assessor ISO Quality Services Limited (ISOQSL) to enhance their systems and processes with the robust management standard. Information security and financial fraud are one of the biggest challenges fintech businesses face.

ISOQSL specialise in auditing organisations information security systems to ensure they’re operating to a level that is aligned with information security best practise. The certification demonstrates that Voly have implemented management controls to protect Information Security within its business.

Ian Flanagan, Voly founder and CEO, said, “It’s vital that our clients have a user experience and a level of data security that’s unparalleled. I’m pleased to say we’ve done this and taken big steps to ensure the Voly Platform is protected from financial fraud. I am also delighted with the work our I.T and Development team have achieved. We won’t stop there; this is an ongoing process as we continue to deliver our multi-currency yacht and asset accounting platform to some of the largest asset management clients in the world.”

ISO 27001 is the only auditable international standard certification, meaning an organisation has policies, procedures, processes and systems that manage information risks, such as cyber-attacks, hacks, data leaks or theft. This provides clients with the added reassurance that their financial data is safe and secure while using the platform.

Rob Shanks, Voly chief technology officer, added, “I am extremely pleased with the company achieving ISO 27001 certification. We know the Voly platform is extremely safe, with security and fraud prevention protocols as standard, including a fully encrypted platform with 2-factor authentication. However, achieving ISO 27001 certification ensures that there are management systems, processes, checks and balances in place to protect information security.”
