FORTRUST Announces Completion of SOC 2 Audit

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - FORTRUST, Colorado's leading premium data center services provider and colocation facility, announced the completion of its Service Organization Control ("SOC") 2 Type 2 audit over Security and Availability for their Denver, Colorado based Data Center and Colocation facility. FORTRUST, upon advice from their independent auditing firm EKS&H, made the decision earlier in the year to complete the conversion to SOC 2 reporting during their normal audit cycle for the former SAS 70 Type II reporting period that they have been completing annually since 2007.

The SOC 2 report provides FORTRUST's customers with an understanding of the internal controls of FORTRUST relevant to security and availability.

"One of our guiding principles is to act as an extension of our customers' businesses and strengthen the compliance that they may require. We've constructed FORTRUST with advanced infrastructure and risk mitigation along with stringent operational discipline and controls to support our offerings and exceed our clients' most demanding requirements," said Rob McClary, Vice President of FORTRUST LLC.

FORTRUST is attracting a number of out-of-state businesses to its Denver, Colorado data center and Colocation facility based on its desirable geographic location in an area that is not prone to natural disasters. Information intensive companies in high-risk geographies such as the earthquake prone and hurricane-centric areas are seeking data centers located in low risk areas to house their IT environments

"Our operational sustainability is validated everyday by our customers' satisfaction, to assist in enabling our customer's compliance requirements is just another small part of our customer service," said Steve Knudson, FORTRUST's chief executive officer.
