Cervalis Renews Annual Cybertrust Service Provider Certification
Cervalis' Security Operations Validated by Top Independent Risk Management Firm
Shelton, CT - June 18th, 2012
Cervalis has once again successfully achieved Cybertrust’s Certification for all of their data center facilities. The certification reflects Cervalis’ continued adherence to extensive and diligent security processes, and validates the continuous use of risk reduction measures.
Cervalis updated their highly demanding Cybertrust Perimeter security management program certification. Cybertrust is a leading provider of intelligent risk management products and services, and continues to be a standard for secure IT and Internet operations. To become a certified customer, all security controls, policies, and procedures are examined and validated by Cybertrust. All aspects of information security, ranging from network and system vulnerability analysis to physical and policy evaluation are audited. The certification tests are performed regularly, and companies must meet all of the standards in the program in order to maintain the certification. The Cybertrust Perimeter security program addresses six categories of risk, including privacy, electronic threats and vulnerabilities, malicious code, physical security, human factors, and downtime issues.
“Cervalis will continue with their commitment to offer the highest levels of security and reliability for our clients," said Michael Boccardi, President and CEO of Cervalis. “We will continue to offer our customers state-of-the-art secure environments that address their IT business needs and strict compliance guidelines."
The goal of the Cybertrust Perimeter security program is to verify and audit security controls at every point within Cervalis’ network infrastructure, and continuously check them to ensure that they are met. Evaluation procedures under the Cybertrust program include repeated external and internal network scanning of the critical devices in Cervalis’ network; network configuration reviews; onsite inspections of Cervalis’ physical environment, including susceptibility to theft, and Cervalis’ perimeter physical defenses, such as gates, locks, surveillance devices and alarms; and reviews of information security policies and procedures.
“Cervalis has made security a priority, and has employed best practices security processes and technologies in order to maintain a proactive and comprehensive information security program,” said Robert Vescio, Director of Security Management Programs at Cybertrust. Throughout the testing and analysis, Cybertrust concluded that Cervalis has taken appropriate action to prevent exploitable vulnerabilities. Receiving this certification further establishes Cervalis as an IT Infrastructure Solutions industry leader, fully committed to maintaining the highest levels of security and reliability for clients.
