SOBERLINK Selects Latisys for Managed Hosting Services

Innovative SaaS Solution Changing the Paradigm of Substance Abuse Recovery Management

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) - Latisys, Inc., a leading national provider of outsourced IT solutions delivered on a high density, high security platform -- from colocation to cloud -- today announced a managed IT infrastructure services agreement with SOBERLINK, a technology-based company that develops products to help automate the alcohol monitoring process.

SOBERLINK has created a revolutionary monitoring system to promote accountability. The SOBERLINK breathalyzer device, certified by the Department of Transportation, features a built-in camera and wireless virtual private network technology. This Software as a Service (SaaS) solution simultaneously determines the blood alcohol content (BAC), takes a photograph of the user and determines the GPS location. The sobriety report is wirelessly transmitted to a secure monitoring web portal featuring unlimited cloud storage and remote access, with real-time alerts sent to any email address or cell phone in the world.

Under terms of the multiyear agreement, Latisys is providing SOBERLINK with a complete, integrated and fully managed IT outsourcing solution via Latisys' national Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform. The SOBERLINK implementation features a primary production site hosted in Latisys' SOC 2 and SOC 3 audited data center in Irvine, Calif. It provides managed compute, storage, load balancing, security, and back up, with custom VPN termination from mobile network provider Verizon. In addition, the solution features full disaster recovery services from Latisys' state-of-the-art Denver data center.

"SOBERLINK was founded in 2010 with the sole purpose of designing an alcohol testing device and service that was revolutionary, yet familiar," said Brad Keays, CEO of SOBERLINK. "As a growing technology company, we understand the business value of outsourcing our infrastructure to trusted partners like Latisys. We can rely on Latisys to deliver a high quality, high touch, highly scalable platform, which enables SOBERLINK to focus on our primary mission -- to change the paradigm of substance abuse recovery management."

"Latisys is pleased that our Managed Hosting platform will play a key role supporting a business with such potential to positively impact society," said Pete Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer, Latisys. "SOBERLINK's innovative model personifies an expanding array of mobile applications and services limited only by the imagination and vision of the businesses themselves."

Latisys' data center platform is now operated under SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3 audited controls. This replaces the SAS 70 guidebook and reaffirms Latisys' commitment to meet the highest standards for availability and security, while making sure all of the appropriate controls and safeguards are firmly in place.

Earlier this year, Latisys announced that it is adding 72,000 square feet of highly secure, high density, carrier grade IT infrastructure space along with significant power upgrades. Latisys' total data center platform now exceeds 343,000 square feet across seven data centers in four major markets.
