Xfernet Achieves SOC 2, PCI and HIPAA Security Compliance, Demonstrating Dedication to Safe, Secure Client Data

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xfernet, a respected, mature IT consulting, hosting and managed services provider offering trusted enterprise-class solutions for businesses worldwide, has achieved compliance with the data security standards of the Service Organization Controls 2 (Type 2), Payment Card Industry (PCI), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

The rigorous third-party examination that led to compliance with the stringent SOC 2, PCI and HIPAA security standards was administered by the professional audit staff at 360 Advanced, a national Qualified Security Assessor and Certified Public Accountant firm based in Tampa, FL.

“It was a very serious audit of every aspect of our data security environment,” said Aaron Faby, Chief Technology Officer at Xfernet. “The third-party examinations really let our clients know we are serious about data security and privacy, and that we are committed to doing what it takes to maintain the processes and systems necessary to ensure compliance at all levels of our operations.”

Faby said the requirement for firms in the cloud services/hosting/IT industry to have successful data security audits is becoming more and more of a standard. He said he believes there will be future legislation mandating the audits as a condition of doing business.

“The PCI and HIPAA especially provide us with a competitive advantage, and our marketing teams leverage these achievements to attract and capture new business,” said Faby.
