CyrusOne Gets ISO Certification

Dallas-based datacenter operator CyrusOne reported this week that 18 of its facilities, spread across six states, have received ISO 27001 certification. The certification covers information security and internal controls and information security processes, including everything from physical controls to legal compliance. CyrusOne said the certification helps underscore "both philosophy and action" in being accountable to its customers. Certifications are typically used by companies to help bolster their customers--and potential customers--confidence in a company's ability--in this case, to handle the issues around information technology security. CyrusOne said it tapped testing company A-lign Security and Compliance Services, LLC in the certification effort.
