REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 22, 2014) - Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), today announced the launch of the company's new Trust site for Host Analytics customers. The new site, which can be viewed at http://trust.hostanalytics.com, provides Host Analytics customers with visibility into system status, uptime, and scheduled maintenance windows.
Host Analytics takes a multi-faceted approach to Trust in cloud computing. The company's Trust program includes four key components:
- Data Security. Host Analytics performs regular audits in conjunction with independent third parties and has consistently met the financial information control standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for Service Organization Controls (SOC) 1 Type II, SOC 2, and Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE-16). The company also uses advanced encryption for both the storage and transmission of data, regularly performs third-party penetration testing, and uses the most advanced T4 datacenters that incorporate methods like two-factor, biometric security.
- Application availability. The Host Analytics Service Level Agreement (SLA) requires 99.5% application availability. In practice, Host Analytics has delivered better than 99.9% SLA availability for eight straight quarters.
- Transparency. The new Host Analytics Trust site is designed to provide transparency for users so that they don't even have to call or log in to understand the status of the system, recent availability, or upcoming scheduled maintenance. Users can subscribe via RSS feed for regular, proactive updates as well.
- Culture. Trust is the first Core Value in the Host Analytics Company Core Values. From top to bottom and across every function, Host Analytics employees commit to the fact that customers are entrusting the company with sensitive information, and that every employee should constantly be considering what they can do to maintain the highest levels of Trust for Host Analytics customers.
"At Host Analytics, we know that asking a customer to entrust us to manage their sensitive financial information puts a huge responsibility on our systems, processes, and team," said Dave Kellogg, CEO at Host Analytics. "We view Trust as a race with no finish-line, and it's why we're constantly investing on many fronts to deliver the security, availability, transparency, and culture that our customers require. The new Host Analytics Trust site is the next step in our ongoing evolution and gives our customers a transparent self-service way to see how we're delivering for them."
