Peak 10, a provider of data center, connectivity and cloud services for broad IT infrastructure requirements, has obtained its Privacy Shield certification, which replaces the now invalidated Safe Harbor regulation – in addition to receiving final reports for SOC1, SOC2, SOC3 and HIPAA. It also renewed certifications for PCI DSS and ISO 27001.
Also new this year, Peak 10 leveraged ZenGRC, a governance, risk and compliance SaaS platform by Reciprocity Labs to administer and manage its compliance and Internet security programs. ZenGRC would provide Peak 10 the transparency to centralize communications as well as track and map policies, controls, risks and vendors.
“One of Peak 10’s foundational pillars is to carefully adhere to industry-specific standards and provide our customers with the best protection of their critical data and applications,” said David Kidd, vice president of governance, risk and compliance for Peak 10. “Our continued efforts were demonstrated this year by the measures we took to safeguard and maintain the facilities, infrastructure and systems our customers depend on.”
In addition to compliance assessments and security certifications, Peak 10 successfully completed audits to renew both the Master Level CMSP and Cisco-Powered IaaS designations. These Cisco certifications would reflect a rigorous examination of a provider’s infrastructure, configuration, operations and documentation to conform to very high standards in providing cloud services to end customers.
Peak 10 serves its 2,600 national customers from 15 data centers, consisting of more than 800,000 square feet across 10 markets in the U.S. Peak 10 undergoes annual examinations by third party auditors and helps companies meet the compliance requirements of various regulatory and industry standards.
