Ultimaker, a leader in professional 3D printing, announced it has achieved ISO/IEC 27001 certification - the internationally-recognized standard for information security management. ISO/IEC 27001 certifies that the security policies and processes Ultimaker applies across its business - including all software and 3D printer products - are rigorous and robust.
Achieving this gold standard makes Ultimaker one of the first 3D printing platforms on the market to be independently certified for information security. For further information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing 2020-2030: COVID Edition.
"At a time when malicious cyber threats against organizations are on the rise, Ultimaker achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification demonstrates our strong commitment to customer security. We understand that protecting information assets and avoiding costly disruption rank among the highest priorities for all organizations. That's why Ultimaker has invested in implementing rigorous security procedures and protocols across its 3D printing platform, and why we factor security into every engineering decision we make. The Ultimaker team is extremely proud of being one of the first and only additive manufacturing platforms to achieve the ISO/IEC 27001 standard. It means that customers can use our software products and services with the confidence that they are managed according to internationally recognised enterprise security standards." said Jürgen von Hollen, CEO at Ultimaker.
While Ultimaker announces the certification today, this strong commitment to security is not new. When developing and maintaining its products and services, Ultimaker takes all measures within its power to minimize and mitigate security threats that could impact customers. The key risks Ultimaker focuses on preventing are:
- Loss of confidential information, such as print files or personal data
- Business process interruption, especially due to threats that may target devices or applications as a stepping stone into customer systems and infrastructure
- Any loss of quality during the 3D printing process
- Infringement of customer data, products, and services
For sectors such as defense, aerospace, product development, research, and education, extraordinary levels of security compliance are often required. Ultimaker has longstanding relationships with customers in all these fields who have already demonstrated advanced security practices in their adoption of 3D printing.
Now, even more organizations can benefit from a high security standard alongside the other benefits of Ultimaker's additive manufacturing platform powered by the cloud - such as transitioning from costly physical inventories to a digital parts library, printing remotely across multiple locations, and enabling team members who could be using 3D printers for their work.
