Rootz LTD has this week passed the ISO 27001 audit laid down by German industry regulators.
The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is an independent body tasked with developing standards for assuring the quality, safety and efficiency of services provided by business.
ISO 27001, in particular, sets out the best practices for an Information Security Management System by adopting a risk-based approach to Information Security, and is a requirement of all prospective iGaming operators hoping to enter the German market.
First Step in German License Approval
The important milestone is the first step towards obtaining a full iGaming license that would permit Rootz to offer remote iGaming services to players based in Germany.
It comes following months of toil behind the scenes at Rootz HQ where employees invested long hours to meet all regulatory requirements within an extremely tight time-frame. The workload was significant but the company gamely overcame the many challenges presented before them in pursuit of their shared business goal.
Further audit requests are expected to be processed in the coming months with a view to entering additional white-listed iGaming markets as the firm looks to solidify its place as a major player on the international stage.
With a fourth, capstone brand in the pipeline, the news also represents perfect timing for visionaries Rootz.
Returning to its signature zed-based naming convention, Spinz Casino is expected to be launched at some point in Q1 2022 with a laser-sharp focus on providing quality live streaming content that aims to reimagine a proven industry concept.
Well Positioned for Future Expansion
Rootz LTD CEO, Lasse Rantala, was proud of his team’s efforts in light of the German audit certification, saying effusively: "I am particularly pleased with the commitment and hard work shown by Rootz employees in the face of such challenging times, demonstrated at all points throughout the certification process.
"The audit certification lays the foundations for entering additional jurisdictions and as such we are well positioned for further international expansion. Together we eagerly look forward to the next exciting chapter in the Rootz story."
Commenting on the need for robust Information Security safeguards, he added: "It goes without saying that information security is of paramount importance in our increasingly digitsed world and we welcome the move towards to a fully regulated global iGaming environment."
Malta-based Rootz LTD has enjoyed widespread success since the launch of flagship brand, Wildz, in 2019.
The operator has gone on to receive numerous industry awards in recognition of its impressive achievements against an incredibly competitive market backdrop, highlighted by this year's stunning showing at the MiGEA Awards ceremony in Malta. Rootz stole the show by taking home an impressive quartet of trophies. That four-strong trophy haul was added to recently in the CasinoGrounds 2021 Awards, where the operator's most recent portfolio addition, Wheelz, prevailed in the coveted 'Rising Casino' category.
Automation at the Heart
Rootz comprises a collection of industry veterans with a fervent passion for gaming. In addtion to its dedicated, skilled workforce, the outfit credits its success to its own custom-built proprietary platform offering a full-scope iGaming solution with automation, speed and player customisation at the heart.
