SOC 2, Type II / SOC 3 Compliant

SOC 2 compliant data centers ensure your data is protected by a facility that has been audited by an independent, accredited firm that benchmarks for privacy, security, availability and more. A SOC 2 report confirms that a data center features all the following controls in place:

  • Security: Physical and logical protection against unsanctioned access.
  • Confidentiality: All information is classified and protected as agreed upon.
  • Processing Integrity: System processing is accurate, timely, and complete.
  • Privacy: Personal Information is collected, used, and retained as agreed upon.

These standards are critical for companies that need to meet strict federal compliance requirements.


123Net’s HIPAA compliant data centers provide the necessary physical, environmental, and network security required to protect patient information and meet HIPAA compliance standards.


PCI compliance is a requirement for all institutions that store valuable credit card data. 123Net’s data centers can provide the physical, environmental, network and infrastructure security needed to protect sensitive cardholder data and meet PCI-DSS compliance standards.


SSAE-18 compliance is a measure of relevant controls for financial reporting.
