Qbase Receives Three New ISO Certifications

October 3, 2016

Reston, VA —Qbase, LLC, a Reston and Beavercreek, Ohio-based software products and services company, today announces that it has received ISO 9001:2015, ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011, and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certifications, distinctions granted by the joint technical committee of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) that, together, define the basic procedures and standards to be followed in the development of International Standards in the field of information technology.

“Ensuring that we continue to meet these world-class standards for our IT services businesses emphasizes our commitment to building strong, long-term relationships with our clients and business partners,” said Brian Nightingale, EVP of Qbase. “We have a proven track record of supporting client mission-critical needs in government, military, healthcare and commercial markets and these certifications ensure our services will continue to meet the ever-evolving expectations of our customer base.”

Qbase is now certified for the next three years in the following standards:

  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems – Requirements
    • ISO 9001:2015 is granted to an organization that demonstrates its ability to “consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.”
  • ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011 Information Technology – Service Management System Requirements
    • ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011 is a service management system (SMS) standard that ensures a service provider meets requirements to “plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and improve an SMS.”
  • ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information technology – Security Techniques – Information Security Management Systems – Requirements
    • ISO/IEC 27001:2013 requires an organization to meet certain standards for “establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization.”

Standing for evaluation and becoming certified by the ISO/IEC for all three certifications demonstrates Qbase’s commitment to providing government clients with the most up-to-date, top-quality services and solutions. ISO certifications are not currently a requirement of doing business with the federal government, however it attests to Qbase’s assurance to deliver superior IT processes, management and improvement.

“Our three new ISO/IEC certifications substantiates the quality and professionalism with which we have served our customers for over a decade and validate that we continue to hold true to these high standards,” said Nightingale.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental membership organization that represents 163 countries around the world and develops universal specifications for products, services and systems to ensure quality, safety and efficiency. Qbase received these distinctions over the summer.
