In 2013, Data Center Arnhem was the first in the Netherlands to obtain SOC 2-2 certification; the international industry standard concerning outsourced services and cloud computing. Consequently, Data Center Arnhem shows that it properly manages both the security and the availability of its service provision. In January 2015, the audit was successfully performed again.

SOC 2 uses ISO 27001 as norm framework and additionally assumes the KPIs that are included in the service provision contracts. On the basis of that, all processes of DCA are evaluated. This method provides the customers with full insight into the organization’s quality. SOC stands for standard operational control and is a certification that is an American norm concerning information security. Within Europe, this certification is increasingly applied due to the strict auditing and the transparency it provides.
