vCitadel, a leading data center operator in colocation, cloud solutions, managed services and custom solutions, has completed a rigorous third-party examination of its policies and procedures under the Service Organization Controls (SOC) 1, Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) standards. Completing the audits demonstrates vCitadel’s commitment to data security and privacy at all levels of its operations.
The thorough analysis of vCitadel’s multi-level protocols and final report of compliance was completed by global IT assurance and compliance services firm 360 Advanced.
Alla Tsitsior, Director of IT Infrastructure for vCitadel, said having formalized data center security and compliance processes audited by an outside third-party is becoming a standard of business in the colocation and managed services industry.
“It is really expected, and all large players in the data center business have it,” said Tsitsior. “It is a requirement of being competitive.”
Completing the HIPAA examination, however, will strengthen vCitadel’s market advantage in becoming a data center provider to healthcare industry customers, she commented.
