SOC 1 Type II report affirms DataBank’s high data center standards
Dallas – July 26, 2012 – DataBank Holdings, Ltd., a leading custom data center and colocation provider based in Dallas, announced the completion of their SSAE 16 audit and were provided their SOC 1 Type II (Service Organization Controls) report for the company’s Downtown Dallas data center facilities.
The SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements) audit, is an attestation standard that establishes the requirements and guidelines for reporting on controls. The audit includes comprehensive requirements and processes for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures meant to enhance DataBank’s data center environment and physical security.
By engaging in the SSAE 16 audit DataBank ensures that customers have a move-in-ready reliable and secure environment. The provided standards confirm that DataBank adheres to strict requirements for infrastructure and data security. In addition the report helps client organizations to manage their own risk and improve overall business performance.
“The audit process is a rigorous but necessary annual event for our staff,” said Tim Moore, CEO of DataBank. “Although intensive, the end result affirms our commitment to providing DataBank clientele with the highest standards of security for their equipment.”
In addition to the facilities in Downtown Dallas, DataBank also intends to apply the same standards audits at the company’s newest data center facility, which is currently under construction in North Dallas and slated to open in late 2012.
