Data center and cloud hosting solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc.
(TurnKey Internet) has announced that it has achieved key industry certifications. With headquarters in Latham, New York, United States TurnKey Internet offers a broad range of hosting and hosting-related services. Established in 1999, the company’s dedicated, cloud, and Virtual Private Server (VPS), reseller hosting, backup services, Exchange email, and e-commerce options are underpinned by the company’s next-generation fibre-optic network and a genuine 100% network uptime guarantee. The company has achieved SSAE 18 SOC 1 and SOC 2 certification.
TurnKey Internet’s latest certification applies to its data center in New York, United States. SSAE 18 was previously called as SSAE 16 (or SAS 70). The SOC 1 standard applies to a company’s financial reporting and addresses internal financial controls. The SOC 2 standard addresses a company’s operations and compliance controls. Achieving both requires a company submit to a stringent auditing procedure, which in this case was offered by SOC audit specialists The Moore Group CPA, LLC.
The auditing considered several key areas including “security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy”. By achieving SOC 1 and 2 TurnKey Internet's data center is recognized as offering integrity, and reliability. It is also recognized as offering robust levels of security. Alongside these certifications, TurnKey Internet also achieved HIPAA compliance, meaning it complies with federal and state government HIPAA regulations in the United States.
“Attaining the SSAE 18 SOC 1 and SOC 2 certification was a significant goal and milestone for us,” explained TurnKey Internet’s President and CEO Adam Wills. “We pride ourselves on our unparalleled reliability, security, quality of service, and—most importantly—customer satisfaction. This certification not only proves that we are excelling in those areas but also assures our new and existing clients that they are receiving the best possible service and data protection available.”Do you know of any other companies gaining industry certification?
