Send Word Now, the leading worldwide provider of emergency notification and incident management services, announced today the opening of its Canadian data centers in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Toronto, Ontario. Send Word Now's industry leading 100% uptime service level guarantee will apply equally to customers whose data is hosted in Canada.
The redundant data centers are robust, state-of-the-art facilities that will provide Send Word Now's growing base of Canadian customers an additional option for compliance with Canadian privacy laws. The ability to store data entirely within Canadian jurisdictions resolves concerns that Canadian companies may have about maintaining their data in the United States and applicability of U.S. regulations, including the Patriot Act. The two new facilities in Vancouver and Toronto also highlight Send Word Now's commitment to maintaining geographically dispersed data centers for its customers.
"We are very excited to count these two new facilities as part of our robust infrastructure," said Tony Schmitz, president and CEO of Send Word Now. "The data centers will allow us to better serve our Canadian clientele, and will give us new opportunities to work with customers who must comply with certain regulatory requirements regarding their data. At Send Word Now, our commitment to security is unwavering, and we are continually taking new steps to ensure customer satisfaction." Send Word Now's robust infrastructure is based on a strong foundation, which is maintained through systematic updates, monitoring, auditing, and reporting.
