Information technology and data storage needs are a challenge for any business, particularly for compliance-driven corporations and financial institutions. Rather than IT departments storing, maintaining and housing servers in their own facilities, many have chosen to use a colocation provider to house, secure and monitor their corporate infrastructure and equipment. By resolving the operational and facility concerns, businesses frequently reduce capital costs and increase the skillset of the support teams required to keep critical systems operating efficiently.
Involta data centers set the standards for redundant power and climate control, giving financial institutions the confidence that they will have the power necessary to run mission-critical services. Involta data center facilities are built in secure structures, located in geographic safe-zones with multiple layers of security, including video surveillance and biometric access control, ensuring that access is granted only to designated individuals. Client information is treated as confidential and Involta staff are industry-trained and follow stringent security procedures. With all this redundancy and security, financial institutions continue to choose Involta for their colocation needs.
Benefits of Colocation
Critical Infrastructure Protection
For financial institutions, performance demands and threat levels have never been higher. These company’s networks need to be equipped for intrusion detection and prevention, malware defense as well as securing remote users and their data. Without these types of protection in place, companies are at risk for failure to comply with SOX, PCI, EFTA, FISMA or other industry standards and controls. Some firms have waited too long to implement these security measures and may not understand the associated risks. Involta provides an unbiased third party assessment of a company’s current environment to identify vulnerabilities as well as the potential threats that corporate infrastructures are at risk for.
Involta’s security assessment provides a comprehensive review of your security environment and culture, utilizing a series of automated tools and analysis from experienced personnel. Involta clients use the security assessment as an input to overall strategic planning, for external audit preparation, and to establish benchmarks for tracking organizational change or effectiveness. Involta has tailored security assessments to meet the specific needs and requirements of clients both big and small. The components available in a security assessment includes both those required by compliance standards as well as best practices to ensure the most secure corporate environment.
