Data center services provider TierPoint 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.
