Many different types of organizations utilize solutions from Net Access. With clients ranging from media, financial, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, technology, healthcare, and other industries, many of our clients need to select a provider that has achieved and maintains compliance standards in order to meet their own regulatory and compliance standards. Organizations in today’s business climate face regulations including SOX, HIPAA, PCI, GLBA, and others in order to ensure that proper safeguards and best practices are being followed related to privacy, information security, controls, etc.
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.
|Single Point In Time Audit
A SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type I audit is a written opinion by an independent auditor stating whether or not a service organization is accurate in the description of its processes and controls and whether or not those stated controls are efficient in meeting their objectives on a given date.
Time Based Auditing
|PCI DSS Standards
The PCI DSS is a comprehensive set of standards that require merchants and service providers that store, process, or transmit customer payment card data to adhere to strict information security controls and processes. The standard includes twelve requirements that include the following information security topics:
|We self-certify compliance with:||Net Access is committed to privacy protection, and self-certifies that we comply with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor framework.
The U.S.-EU Safe Harbor framework was established to bridge the differences in approach to privacy protection by the U.S. and EU and provide a streamlined means for U.S. organizations to comply with the directive.
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.
