Collaborative Work Management Leader Extends ISO/IEC Certifications, SOC 2 Compliance for Robust Security

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 19, 2021 - Wrike, the most intelligent and versatile collaborative work management platform, now part of Citrix, today announced it has been certified for five international security standards by the British Standards Institution and extended the scope of its SOC 2 compliance to include the Type II report after an audit by Schellman & Company. The surge in security risks driven by the rise in remote and hybrid work environments is making data protection even more crucial for businesses. 

According to a recent survey of global CIOs, 61% of IT leaders rank security as a top IT budget priority for organizations this year. With the whole world now shifting again to establishing long-term hybrid work models, data and IT security is set to remain a key focus for companies of all sizes.

“IT has a difficult job balancing the complex needs of an organization. Employees require flexible, cohesive work management solutions, while the company must maintain top security and governance at all times. Throw on top of this the fact that everyone is now shifting to hybrid workplace models, which opens us up to new risks,” explains Andrew Filev, Senior Vice President and Wrike General Manager, Citrix. 

“At Wrike, we’ve always maintained a strong focus on ensuring our solution’s capabilities in data protection and security. We work with enterprises around the world that require the most stringent protection, and we’re pleased to always be in a position to meet their needs. Our latest certifications and compliances underscore this commitment.”

Wrike has confirmed compliance with the following standards:

ISO/IEC 27001 - Information Security Management
Helps organizations manage and protect their information assets

ISO/IEC 27017 - Code of practice for information security controls
Provides enhanced controls for cloud service providers and cloud service customers
 
ISO/IEC 27018 - Code of practice for protection of personally identifiable information (PII)
Protects personally identifiable information in the public cloud
 
ISO/IEC 27701 - Privacy Information Management System
Gives guidance on the protection of privacy, including how organizations should manage personal information, and assists in demonstrating compliance with global privacy regulations
 
CSA STAR -  Addresses cloud security as an enhancement to ISO/IEC 27001
Provides reassurance that the organization addresses critical cloud security issues
 
SOC Type II - Comprehensive certification within the Systems and Organization Controls protocol
Ensures internal control policies and practices are rigorously evaluated for a minimum of six months

The SOC 2 Type II compliance marked a milestone for Wrike. Schellman & Company’s assessment was conducted remotely using Wrike as the primary platform for coordinating and managing the highly complex process of security audit. Traditionally, such assessments are conducted in person, but with COVID-19 forcing restrictions on in-person meetings, Wrike and Schellman shifted to a fully remote model. Completing the assessment is further validation of the flexibility and versatility of Wrike for remote and hybrid teams.
