TierPoint LLC has announced that it has successfully completed its most recent round of HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA, and SOC 2 Type II annual compliance audits for all data centers it operates. TierPoint also holds EU-US Privacy Shield certification and ITAR registration on a company-wide basis.

“In our industry, there is an increased focus on security, privacy protection and reliability standards,” said Paul Mazzucco, chief security officer, TierPoint. “Our commitment is to not only meet but exceed industry standards, with a year-round program of rigorous testing and analysis of our infrastructure.”

TierPoint is among a select few national infrastructure providers that have achieved compliance certifications for such a large national footprint of facilities, which (in TierPoint’s case) includes 40 data centers in 20 markets with 8 multi-tenant cloud pods. Compliance certifications are considered important by many organizations seeking a colocation, cloud or hybrid IT solution with uniform processes and practices that meet industry standards for physical and operational efficiency, privacy protection, and security.
