This certification signifies that Colo Atl meets, and in most cases, exceeds the requirements for controls and safeguards when hosting its clients’ data. Obtaining the SSAE 16 certification also signifies that Colo Atl is up to date with new international service organization reporting standards, the ISAE 3402. This transition from the SAS 70 Type 2 to SSAE 16 will help Colo Atl and its collocated customers compete on an international level as it provides 3rd party accreditation on critical controls and reporting, which are mandatory when working with international companies.
“As we expand to provide colocation and interconnection to more global tenant and carrier providers, we’re thrilled to be able to confidently say that our facility is comparable to the best in the world,” states Tim Kiser, Owner and Founder of Colo Atl. “The latest enhancement to the SSAE 16 certification is Colo Atl’s promise to our current and future tenants, and customers, which is to provide the best possible colocation and interconnection services possible, complete with having met the strictest of safety and security standards.”
