Compliance and certification

NT-ware as well as the Microsoft Azure platform comply with many industry standards and regulations to help keep your data safe. NT-ware’s commitment to learning and certification help us get the most out of the powerful platform.

Employee certification and education

Canon INC and NT-ware - as part of the Canon Group - are members of the global Microsoft Enterprise Skills Initiative (ESI). NT-ware employees have free access to the Microsoft learning platform (Learner Experience Portal) and Microsoft-delivered, instructor-led, advanced role-based training to develop skills and retrieve Microsoft Azure and Microsoft security related certifications for different certification levels from fundamental to expert level. NT-ware employees benefit individually from certification by gaining international recognition as experts in Microsoft Azure and enhancing their professional credentials.

In addition to the Microsoft Enterprise Skills Initiative employees can take part in Microsoft Cloud Skills Challenges to extend their knowledge and skills on various Microsoft Azure topics.

NT-ware also offers learning and skills development into every employee’s personal improvement plan utilizing systems such as Pluralsight and other industry-related education platforms and certifications. These qualifications help NT-ware employees to stay current with cloud technologies, secure development and IT security.

Compliance in the trusted cloud

NT-ware compliance

The international standard ISO 14001 defines requirements for an environmental management system and guides an organization on how it can improve its environmental performance, meet legal and other obligations and achieve environmental goals. NT-ware, as part of the Canon Group, has been assessed and certified as meeting the requirements of ISO 14001:2015.

NT-ware ensures that our business practices and any product features follow strict guidelines under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Our GDPR readiness and handling of data subject to this standard is reviewed at least annually.

The Federal Risk and Management Program (FedRAMP) is a cybersecurity risk management program for the purchase and use of cloud products and services. FedRAMP is a certification that helps U.S. government agencies and many public sector companies to identify technology that can support a rapidly evolving work environment while addressing security and control requirements. Canon Office Cloud Print Management Solution has achieved moderate-level FedRAMP authorization. uniFLOW Online is part of the Canon Office Cloud Print Management Solution and FedRAMP compliant for the U.S. deployment only.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a mandatory standard followed by card schemes to increase controls over cardholder data in order to reduce the risk of fraud. PCI DSS assessment and certification is important in any form of cyber defense where credit card information is handled. NT-ware regards security very seriously.

uniFLOW Online cloud service can be integrated into payment gateways, such as PayPal™, providing a simple and secure way for users to top up their print and copy accounts without processing or storing credit card data. All the credit card gateways supported by uniFLOW Online cloud service offer an integration architecture which uses URL redirect to direct the user’s browser to the payment gateway website. The user will be redirected to the payment provider site to complete the payment transaction i.e. credit card details are not provided to uniFLOW Online.

uniFLOW Online cloud service has no direct interaction with the end user or the payment gateway. Neither credit card data (card numbers, CVNs, expiry dates) or payment details are ever passed to or stored by uniFLOW Online cloud service. All credit card processing and user interaction take place on the payment provider’s site. This means a correctly deployed implementation of uniFLOW Online cloud service will be compliant with the PCI DSS category SAQ A (self-certification).
