zMessenger, the award winning integrated mobile media company, made history once again as they became the first and only Sri Lankan digital agency to receive the ISO 27001:2013 certification for information security by the Bureau Veritas Certification Holding SAS-UK branch. Through this latest achievement, the company continues its tradition of being in the forefront of mobile marketing and digital services in Sri Lanka.
Global organizations, especially banks and financial institutions, have strict guidelines on which local companies they can work with at the local level. Resultantly, some of them are not allowed to work with any digital agency, irrespective of the agency’s standing in the local market. This has limited these organizations’ options when it comes to marketing their products and services to local customers through digital media. With the ISO certification, by tying up with zMessenger, international brands operating in Sri Lanka now have the opportunity to work with a digital agency that adheres to their high standards in terms of authority, recognition, guaranteed security and reliable service. This allows these organizations to tap into zMessenger’s vast experience gained over its 12 years of operations that has made it Sri Lanka’s leader in mobile marketing and digital services.
Expressing her views on this achievement, Jayomi Lokuliyana Co-Founder/CEOof zMessenger stated, “This is a historic day for zMessenger as we have become the first and only digital agency in Sri Lanka to achieve ISO certification for information security. This ISO certification highlights the fact we are a company that adheres to international standards and is a confirmation that we are able to provide world-class services backed by a recognized international body.” She added that both international and local brands are insistent on standards and structure when working with digital agencies. “We are proud to be able to meet these stringent standards of our clients for the past 12 years. With information security being such a crucial aspect of businesses these days, it is important that zMessenger was able to adapt to meet this demand. We are confident that this certification will pave the way for zMessenger to acquire new clients, especially reputed international brands that operate locally,” she added.
