Achieving physical security, exceptional reliability, and high-quality service are key for provider of online storage of financial data
DALLAS (April 17, 2015) – Global data center services provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) announces the availability of a complimentary case study featuring its data center solution for SmartVault, a leading provider of secure, cloud-based online document storage and file-sharing services for tax preparation and accounting firms.
“The SmartVault case study details the unique solution CyrusOne provided to meet SmartVault’s production needs that are centered on physical security, reliability, and room for future growth,” said Scott Brueggeman, chief marketing officer at CyrusOne. “In addition to providing top-tier colocation services, CyrusOne’s focus on delivering excellent service levels parallels SmartVault’s emphasis on quality customer care for their own clients.”
After a lengthy selection process, SmartVault selected CyrusOne in 2008 to host its IT footprint. The company needed a facility in close proximity to its Houston location to provide the essential elements of power, Internet connectivity, and security. Since then, SmartVault and CyrusOne have partnered successfully together to ensure SmartVault’s servers are always available and their data is secure.
“CyrusOne is focused on reliably delivering to us the key colocation elements—power, cooling, connectivity, and physical security. We like this approach because CyrusOne is paying attention to what we really need and constantly looking for ways to fulfill those needs,” said Mike Webb, chief technology officer at SmartVault.
“The most important factor is physical security. Since our clients entrust us with confidential financial data, SmartVault needed a data center provider that was SSAE16 SOC II compliant. We can’t do that by ourselves. We needed a data center that offered specific onsite physical security features and controls,” added Webb.
