Security management system certification for Interxion

Interxion : 19 June, 2008  (Company News)
UK and Netherlands data centres achieve ISO 27001 security management systems certification
Interxion has received the internationally recognised ISO 27001 certification for information security management systems for both its Netherlands data centres and its HQ Operations, which are located both in the Netherlands and at the company's European Service (ESC) Centre in London. The rigorous ISO 27001 audit and certification process is scheduled to continue across the remainder of Interxion locations during 2008.

The certification underlines Interxion's commitment to preserving the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all the physical and electronic information assets managed by the business. The Interxion Security Management System and processes covered by the ISO 27001 certification are based on a detailed Risk Management analysis of the company's entire data centre network.

ISO27001 is one of the most rigorous international standards for system and physical security processes and effectively replaces BS7799-2, the original British Standards Institute standard. The audit and certification process focuses on every aspect of the business, including physical infrastructure, site security and access management, personnel capabilities, communications and operations, legal compliance criteria, and back-up and disaster recovery systems.

Interxion's European Service Centre (ESC) is also covered by this certification. The ESC is both a service and operational management desk, and supports network monitoring, hands and eyes, rapid response, backup & restore and managed services. It provides five-language support on a 24/7 basis, putting customers in touch with native speakers of English, French, Spanish, German and Dutch.

"This ISO certification shows that physical and application security is at the heart of our business," said Phil Collerton, Interxion EVP Operations. "We focused on achieving certification for our pan-European support capabilities, because we believe that this will result in greater overall integrity and simplicity for our customers. It effectively means that customers who want a multi-country relationship with us have access to consistently high standards of security and availability, no matter where their data or equipment is located."
