Net Access

Net Access, a leading provider of hybrid colocation, cloud, connectivity and business continuity solutions, announced today that they have successfully completed comprehensive third-party assessments validating that their data centers meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 3.0 and Service Organization Controls 1 (SOC 1) Type 2 standards of control.

PCI DSS is a set of requirements designed to eliminate credit card fraud by ensuring that all companies that process, store or transmit customer payment card information adhere to strict information security controls and processes. Version 3.0 of this standard became effective earlier this year. SOC 1 is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants developed to measure the internal infrastructure and controls that a services organization has in place to ensure data protection, security, and confidentiality. Type 2 standards focus on both the design and operating effectiveness of the controls.

These audits, which were performed by BrightLine CPAs and Associates, Inc., a leading provider of attestation and compliance services, examined the controls, policies and processes that Net Access has in place for storing, handling, and transmitting data securely. It included a rigorous assessment of Net Access’ data center security management, written policies and procedures, physical security, network architecture, user access management, network and systems monitoring, and software development.

“With these validations Net Access continues to demonstrate our commitment to security and controls in both our data center and our solutions, and underscores the investment we’ve made to ensure that our customers’ information and infrastructure are safe,” said Raul Martynek, CEO of Net Access.

“Our customers place a great deal of trust in our ability to protect their valuable data and technology assets,” added Jason VanderPloog, Senior Vice President of Operations at Net Access. “We are pleased to also be able to assist them with some of their compliance obligations.”

In addition to PCI DSS 3.0 and SOC 1 Type 2, Net Access also meets the compliance and reporting standards of HIPAA/HITECH, SSAE 16 and the US–EU Safe Harbor Framework.

Copies of all of Net Access’ Attestation and Certification documents are available upon request.
