ST. LOUIS (December 2, 2020) – TierPoint, a leading provider of secure, connected data center and cloud solutions at the edge of the internet, today announced it has successfully completed its most recent round of NIST, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA, SOC 1, and SOC 2 annual compliance audits for all data centers the company operates. TierPoint is also ITAR and EU-US Privacy Shield registered.
TierPoint met SSAE 18 standards for SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II, and SOC 2 + HITRUST audits for all its data centers. The SOC audits objectively evaluate the effectiveness of controls in place to address operations, compliance, and financial reporting. Replacing the SSAE 16 standard, SSAE 18 is the latest auditing standard initiated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in 2017.
“Security, privacy protection, and reliability are key to the success of our customers and a priority for our company,” said TierPoint Chief Security Officer Paul Mazzucco. “Throughout the year, we deploy rigorous testing and infrastructure analyses to help make sure we meet and exceed industry standards in all our data centers.”
