Who certifies the certifiers?

At SE Labs we test security software and services methodically, realistically and in great detail. Or, at least, we claim to. But how does anyone really know?

Testing can be a very process-driven task. If you are going to be fair to every product undergoing a test you need to be consistent with how you run the test as a whole and how you test each individual product. It's probably best carried out by well-qualified people, then?

You don't need to be certified to work here…

We figured that as we certify, so should we be certified. As such, for the last few months we have worked towards having our business certified to an international level for providing consistent security testing services.

Another purpose of quality management is improvement. There is always room for improvement in testing, and we constantly strive to make things more realistic, useful and fair for everyone involved.

As such I am extremely proud to announce that SE Labs has now achieved compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard for quality management systems, specifically relating to "The Provision of IT Security Product Testing".

That means we do what we say we do, and strive to improve.
