Gigas is Esquema Nacional de Seguridad (ENS) certified. This certification establishes security standards that apply to all government agencies and public organizations in Spain, and service providers on which the public services are dependent on.
This is the most commonly used standard when verifying that a company has the appropriate controls to manage the confidentiality, integrity and availability of its information and that of its clients. In order to obtain this certification, we had to demonstrate that we have a systematic approach and control in the management of every single aspect related to information security. In addition to policies and procedures for proper information security management, we offer specific security measures such as Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS) to filter attacks and intrusions, different firewall technologies that block authorized communications (but allow legitimate ones through), web traffic analysis and, of course, anti-virus and anti-spam systems.
