Net Access’ compliant colocation services adhere to SSAE (statements on standards attestation engagement) type II audits as well as payment card industry data security standards (PCI DSS). As a colocation provider with clients across all industries, Net Access understands the importance of clients having to meet their own compliance standards regarding SOX, HIPAA, PCI, GLBA. We undergo compliance audits to ensure that the proper safety measures are taken in association with privacy, information security and controls. This benefits our clients, because it guarantees that data is handled securely and removes the need for expensive third party auditors.
Our compliant colocation facilities are SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type II audited and PCI DSS compliant. Our compliance with SSAE Audits, PCI DSS Standards help us maintain certified data centers for businesses seeking colocation, cloud or dedicated services.
Why Net Access undergoes these audits
As a data center infrastructure provider, privacy, information security, controls, and best practices take an important role in our organization. For that reason, Net Access maintains Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) Type II audits (formerly SAS 70 Type II) and has achieved the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance. This means that independent third party auditors have assessed our data center facilities to determine how closely the policies and procedures are being followed and that the necessary controls are in place. In addition, Net Access also self-certifies compliance with the US – EU Safe Harbor Framework related to privacy protection.

How this benefits our clients
We see our compliance as much more than a check in a checkbox for our customers. Whether your organization has its own regulatory or compliance requirements or not, it can ensure that it is hosting its infrastructure in a data center facility that has stringent security policies in place that are audited annually by independent third party auditors. Another benefit of utilizing a SSAE 16 data center or PCI compliant hosting center is that this can eliminate the need for costly and time consuming audits to be done by third parties on behalf of our clients. We also follow the privacy guidelines set forth by the U.S. – EU Safe Harbor framework.
