Compliance & Certifications.

ISO27001

The highest global standard for data security. Demonstrating you are employing the world-best practice solutions can secure you new opportunities, especially in sensitive, regulated and public sectors. One of the many reasons why we’re among the most certified data centres in Australia.

PCI DSS Version 3.2.1

It's not the law. But it is the highest global standard for payment card data. It's mandatory for dealing with VISA, MasterCard and AMEX. And if you don't have it, you risk critical liability for serious data breaches. Choosing Australia's most-recommended Data centres operators makes your certification that much easier.

Federal Government Certified

From digital transformation to secure government Infrastructure Management, we're leaders in the field. Our own sovereign Data Centres have ASD 'protected' CCSL certifications, ISM compliance and deliver an unrivalled experience with our local NV1 certified engineers and ICON interconnectivity.
