Neterra's newest data center - SDC Stolnik, has successfully passed the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) certification process. Thus, the independent Bulgarian telecom adds another data center under the SDC brand, which meets the international standard for information security.
PCI DSS guarantees security and safe handling of data and assets of both Neterra and customers co-located in the company's data centers.
The certification process is thorough and demanding. After successfully passing it, the company will be subject to comprehensive audits and inspections every year.
Neterra customers can use the fact that they are co-located in a PCI DSS certified data center as their competitive advantage in international markets. This will make them a preferred business partner and contribute to their good reputation.
At the same time, they will be sure that their equipment is stored and maintained in line with the highest standards - with 24-hour security, cameras at key locations, continuity of services (reserved generators and air conditioners, firefighting), strict procedures for admission to the collocation halls.
Customers are admitted to visiting Neterra's data centers only accompanied at all times by an authorized engineer from the technical team.
