DataBank Attains FedRAMP Certification for Third Year in a Row

Certification Reinforces Company’s Standards for Security for its Clients and Highlights DataBank’s Multiple Compliance Milestones.

Dallas, Texas – January 21, 2021 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class data center colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announces its FedRamp Certification for the third year in a row. In addition, DataBank also achieved CSA Star Level 2 certification, along with an error-free SSAE18 SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, and PCI-DSS compliance.

FedRAMP is General Services Administration’s (GSA) Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, providing a standardized approach to security and risk assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring, essential for organizations in this digital age.

With the complexity and frequency of security incidents and data breaches on the rise, organizations protect their critical data by maintaining continuous monitoring of security and compliance practices.

“DataBank understands that the importance of ensuring compliance not only for our own core infrastructure and services, but also to make sure our customers have the tools, resources, and solutions they need in order to keep their data private and secure,” comments Calli Schlientz, DataBank’s Compliance Team Lead.

DataBank is recertified each year for its major compliance frameworks including, SSAE18, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and Privacy Shield – GDPR. In addition, the company attained an error-free SSAE18 SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, and PCI-DSS Report on Compliance (ROC) for both Managed Services and Colocation Services, as well as a PCI Report on Compliance (ROC) for its Managed Services platforms in its Baltimore data center, BWI1Dallas data center, DFW1, and Kansas City cloud nodes. Achieving an error-free ROC is rare, and this marked the third year in a row that DataBank has received such an accolade for PCI.

Industry officials point to data center companies like DataBank that leverage in-house expertise and infrastructure platforms to adhere to industry regulations and requirements — and further reduce the burden on IT staff.

The certification comes on the heels of the company’s acquisition of zColo’s U.S. and U.K. data center assets from Zayo Group holdings and its strategic investment in EdgePresence, which adds modular facilities to augment its traditional data center portfolio.
