DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 9, 2015-- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center solutions across the U.S., today announced that it has successfully attained the prestigious International Organization for Standardization certification (ISO 27001) covering both its corporate policies and procedures as well as those of all of its operating data centers.

The scope of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification is applicable to the information security management system (ISMS) supporting CoreSite’s provision and operation of 24x7 colocation hosting services for its customers.

The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, one of the most stringent certifications for information security controls, confirms that ample information security controls and other forms of risk treatment are in place to detect and defend against potential data system vulnerabilities. The certification also ensures that the information security controls continue to meet security needs on an ongoing basis. More specifically, the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 award certifies that CoreSite:

  • evaluates and identifies business and operational risks, and has measures in place to manage or reduce them;
  • operates with a comprehensive set of information security controls and other risk management measures to address information security risks within its data centers as well as its corporate environment; and
  • implements an enterprise-wide program designed to ensure that the information security controls meet the information security needs of CoreSite’s constituents on an ongoing basis

“We are pleased that the hard work and professionalism of our employees has resulted in the achievement of the internationally recognized ISO certification. We believe that this certification reflects our commitment to provide CoreSite customers with secure, reliable, and high-performance data center colocation hosting solutions,” said Tom Ray, CoreSite’s Chief Executive Officer. “Ensuring a high level of information security is vital to the protection of the company, our customers and partners, and is a further example of our commitment to operational excellence across our organization.”

The certification was performed by BrightLine, an independent, licensed CPA firm, QSA, and accredited ISO 27001 certification body by ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and the United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS).
