Interoute Achieves ISAE 3402 and SSAE 16 type II Compliance for Its Paris Data Center Operations

Interoute, owner operator of one of Europe’s largest cloud hosting services platforms, has expanded the scope of its combined ISAE 3402 and SSAE 16 type II 2014 assurance report to include its Paris Data Center Operations. The annual third party audited report provided by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) now covers Interoute’s Amsterdam, Berlin, Geneva, London and Paris data center operations.

The type II report was completed by PwC following a six month sampling audit across seven fundamental security and risk control areas. The PwC assurance report highlights the effectiveness of Interoute’s operations regarding managed outsourced security and risks, and applies to Interoute’s virtual hosting infrastructure, including Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC).

The external assurance report produced by PwC measures the effectiveness of our ISO 20000 and ISO 27001 controls, and provides reporting transparency to our customers to support their governance demands.”

The following controls have been tested and certified: security and risk governance, physical environmental and logical security and management of availability, as well as change configuration and continuity. Interoute‘s combined ISAE 3402 and SSAE assurance report would prove that the company has the right processes and controls in place to secure the high demands for governance and certification across the company’s data centers.
