Cloud hosting provider TurnKey Internet, Inc.
(TurnKey Internet) has had its ‘Privacy Shield Certification’ renewed until April 2020. Latham, New York-based TurnKey Internet was established in 1999 and offers a broad range of cloud-based IT solutions and managed web hosting. The company operates a ‘green’ data center in Albany, New York, United States which is powered by renewable energy and offers services like cloud hosting, dedicated servers and Virtual Private Server (VPS) options to a global customer base. It also operates a next generation fiber optic network with 100% guaranteed uptime. Achieving the Privacy Shield Framework shows the company’s ability to “comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union”.
Known as the ‘EU-U.S Privacy Shield Framework’, it was designed by the Department of Commerce in the United States, the European Commission, and the Swiss Administration. It applies to European companies and companies in the US, allowing them to meet European Union (EU) law when transferring data across the Atlantic. It also enables them to meet the data requirements of Switzerland. It supersedes the ‘Safe Harbor Agreement’ which was the European Court of Justice deemed unsuitable to meet European data protection standards.
TurnKey Internet initially received certification in March 2017.
“Our Privacy Shield certification reflects our fundamental commitment to protecting our customers and their data,” said Adam Wills, CEO of TurnKey Internet, Inc. He continued, “At TurnKey Internet, we strive to meet the highest levels of data privacy protection. We believe it is critical that we do everything we can to build trust and ensure privacy compliance for all of our global clients. Our clients from over 150 countries entrust us to securely receive and host their personal data. This certification highlights our vision of providing the most secure and reliable Cloud Hosting solutions available today.”Do you know of any other companies achieving international data standards?
