LightEdge was founded back in 1996 as the Midwest’s premier Internet Service Provider out of Des Moines, Iowa. After two decades of growth and pioneering in-network, LightEdge entered a new chapter. The company doubled down on the data centers and compliant cloud services they were known for to support the most complex IT requirements for highly regulated industries.

Throughout the years, their team of experts has doubled in size, and LightEdge has built & expanded eleven Tier III facilities across Des Moines, IA, Kansas City, MO, Omaha, NE , Raleigh, NC, Austin, TX, San Diego, CA, and Phoenix, AZ. They shed their persona as an IT Consulting firm and honed in on their core areas of expertise: cloud, colocation, and compliance. Over the past decade, LightEdge has achieved SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II & SOC 3 compliance, became ISO 20000-1, ISO 22301, & ISO 27001 certified, and successfully completed audits for HIPAA, PCI DSS, HITRUST, and (most recently) NIST. LightEdge’s impenetrable physical security and global compliance standards make them unmatched in the cloud and colocation space.
