DataBank Joins Cloud Security Alliance

Dallas, TX – March 28, 2019 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, connectivity, managed services and cloud solutions, announces that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.

Security is top of mind for companies of all sizes, and to be effective for mission-critical workloads it requires a multi-layered defense-in-depth approach.

As a CSA partner, DataBank brings its already best-of-breed controls and aligns them with the CSA’s Common Controls Matrix (CCM), which are specifically designed to provide fundamental security principles to guide cloud vendors and to assist prospective cloud customers in assessing the overall security risk of a cloud provider.

In addition, DataBank offers customers access to a full staff of security experts and engineers, along with a wide spectrum of compliance and security controls, including FedRAMP/FISMA, SSAE-18, HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI-DSS.

“The Cloud Security Alliance has positioned itself as the premier cloud security advocate,” comments Mark Houpt, Chief Information Security Officer. “DataBank’s new relationship with the CSA further demonstrates our commitment to ensuring our customers’ IT infrastructures are secure and doing so to a level that is recognized industry-wide.”

“We welcome DataBank as a CSA member as the company brings a wealth of experience and a strong commitment to security at every level,” states J.R. Santos, Executive Vice President of Research for Cloud Security Alliance. “DataBank’s dedication to providing world-class cloud services is a benefit to our members and we look forward to working closely with its team.”

DataBank offers customers a wide variety of security solutions and cloud services to suit their requirements and applications including a FedRAMP-certified CloudPlus® 5 (CP5) platform as well as hybrid cloud, managed cloud, private cloud, and IaaS.
