DES MOINES, IA – Thursday, December 8, 2021 – As a leader in the compliant cloud and data center space for over 25 years, LightEdge provides unmatched security and compliance, zero outages and downtime, and a flexibility to meet your business model.  Today, LightEdge announced it has successfully renewed all certifications for information security for 2021. The following certifications have been renewed successfully: ISO 27001 and ISO 20000-1, SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, SOC 3, HIPAA, HITRUST, PCI-DSS, and NIST 800-53.

LightEdge has maintained its ISO 27001 certification since 2016 for its information security management system supporting their colocation, managed, and hosted services. Having an ISO 27001 certification empowers clients to make informed decisions about their cloud security services and ensures vendor accountability. Additionally, LightEdge is 1 of 5 data centers to have and maintain ISO 20000-1 certification based on the globally recognized ITIL framework. Partnering with an ISO 20000-1 certified provider, like LightEdge, ensures all cloud hosting or IT infrastructure is managed consistently with an internationally recognized standard of excellence.

LightEdge also successfully completed SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, and SOC 3 examinations. These assessments are carried out by a licensed CPA firm to assess the controls and processes supporting colocation, managed, and hosted services. The SOC examinations demonstrate LightEdge’s information security practices, policies, procedures, and operations meet the standards for security, availability, and confidentiality throughout the reporting review periods.

Additionally, LightEdge successfully completed an attestation report relevant to its information security program for the colocation, managed, and hosted services related to HIPAA and HITECH. These verify the organization’s development, security and compliance protocols meet key regulatory requirements and industry defined requirements for appropriate risk management. They have also once again achieved compliance with version 3.2 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) relevant to its colocation services. LightEdge continues to be a validated PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider and demonstrates its data center facilities and services meet the strict security requirements set by PCI.

“The completion of these annual examinations uniquely positions LightEdge to continue providing our customers a consistent and comprehensive solution to compliance standards across all of our facilities,” says LightEdge Chief Security Officer, Michael Hannan. “These compliance certifications demonstrate LightEdge’s ongoing commitment to operational excellence and customer experience, enabling our clients to meet industry standard requirements for their own organizations.”

LightEdge will continue its commitment to compliance and security excellence in 2022 by undergoing audits to earn certifications in CMMC, CJIS and ITAR. For more information on LightEdge’s commitment to compliance, check out our compliance & security services.
