ISO 27001 certification
ISO 27001 is a widely known international standard for the information security management system (ISMS). It provides a series of recognizable frameworks for organizations of all sizes to manage the security of digital assets such as service data, user data, or employee details and thus meet relevant compliance requirements such as GDPR.
Receiving an ISO 27001 certification indicates that a company has invested in the personnel, processes, tools, and systems necessary to protect the company’s data and is an independent and expert assessment of the company’s data security measures.
InQuartik’s Commitment to Data Security
InQuartik is fully committed to ensuring:
- The integrity and security of our clients and employees information
- Our users can safely use Patentcloud for searching, managing, and saving patent data
- We minimalize the risk of any type of data security breach

InQuartik places the security and privacy of data as our utmost priority. Specializing in providing patent analytics and solutions backed by comprehensive quality patent data, we fully understand the challenges faced when storing data in any cloud platform.
