ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Online Tech is pleased to announce it has successfully been certified with no exceptions with regulatory standard ISO/IEC 27001. The audit took just five months to complete for each of the company's five data centers plus its Ann Arbor headquarters.
Online Tech's successful ISO 27001 audit is the newest chapter of a lengthy history of regulatory compliance. In 2009, the company successfully passed its first SAS 70 audit. Two years later, they were the first cloud provider audited and found to be 100 percent compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Since then, the company has added a host of other compliant offerings, including PCI DSS, SOC 1 and SOC 2, and EU-US Privacy Shield. The company is consistently seen as a leader in security and compliance and is pleased to add ISO 27001 to its extensive list.
"I'm thrilled that we have successfully completed our ISO 27001 audit with no corrective actions needed and in such a short time period," said Jason Yaeger, Online Tech's Security Officer and Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Solutions. "Online Tech has always had a focus on a culture on compliance, and we believe this audit will make a huge difference to our customers. They trust us to keep their data secure and compliant, and this is just one more example that by hosting their data with us, clients can prove to their own end users that their data is well protected."
ISO 27001 is a rigorous standard that sets requirements for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive organization information so that it remains secure. Maintaining this security includes implementing in-depth risk management processes to the system's people, processes and IT systems. By passing the audit with no exceptions, Online Tech has demonstrated that it goes above and beyond the required controls to mitigate risk and keep sensitive data secure and protected.
Online Tech's ISO 27001 audit was performed by NSF International, a leading inspection and certification organization. For more information, visit http://www.onlinetech.com/compliance-security/iso-27001-compliant-hosting.
