OneNeck IT Solutions secures PCI DSS validation for colocation services

Thursday, December 05, 2019 — 12:56:08 (EST)


OneNeck® IT Solutions has completed the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) version 3.2.1 Attestation of Compliance for colocation services at their top-tier data centers.

All merchants who outsource the transmission, processing or storage of payment card data to a third-party are required, by the PCI Security Standards Council, to verify the provider adheres to the standard. To validate their adherence to the standard, OneNeck once again requested Schellman & Company, LLC perform the PCI DSS assessment. Schellman, an independent PCI Qualified Security Assessor, reviewed the colocation services OneNeck provides customers at their data centers in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon and Wisconsin.

“Third-party validation offers customers additional assurances that we have the security controls in place to protect their data,” said Katie McCullough, Chief Information Security Officer at OneNeck. “It substantiates we are fully-prepared to host customer environments in our top-tier colocation facilities. In addition, this year we are proud to be including the new controls around logical security, which recently went into effect. This expanded validation also confirms we have the ability to meet specific colocation deliverables, in compliance with other PCI DSS controls.”

In addition to PCI DSS validation, OneNeck also regularly submits itself to other third-party reviews, including ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, HIPAA and HITECH and SSAE 18 examination.

OneNeck provides a full suite of hybrid IT solutions including cloud and hosting solutions, managed services, enterprise application management, professional services and IT hardware—in addition to colocation services at its top-tier data centers. For more information, visit oneneck.com.
