Carrier-1 Data Centers Receives SSAE 16 Certification

Wholesale Colocation Tenants Receive Direct Access to Leading Cloud Providers

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - May 04, 2016) - The Dallas, Texas-based wholesale colocation provider, Carrier-1 Data Centers, has completed its SOC 1 Type II report prepared in accordance with the AICPA's Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16. The audit provided an examination of Carrier-1's system of internal procedures to ensure the suitability of design and operating effectiveness of applicable controls.

"As a data center, we host systems relevant to our tenant's financial reporting and therefore are responsible for controls over those systems, such as physical and environmental security," said Ron Bowen, Director of Facilities for Carrier-1. "Therefore, the SSAE 16 is a valuable assurance standard for clients hosted in our facility."

Completing the SOC report as well as meeting critical compliance requirements such as PCI, HIPPA, FedRAMP, FISMA and Sarbanes-Oxley further demonstrates Carrier-1's ability to mitigate security and availability risks.
