We are pleased to announce that our recent submission to the CSA Star registry, for our Security self-assessment document, was successful. The Security Trust Assurance and Risk (STAR) Program encompasses key principles of transparency, rigorous auditing, and harmonization of standards. Companies who use STAR indicate best practices and validate the security posture of their cloud offerings.

The STAR registry documents security and privacy controls provided by popular cloud computing offerings. This publicly accessible registry allows cloud customers to assess their security providers in order to make the best procurement decisions.

As a member of this registry we:

  • Provide our customers with a high level of transparency and confidence that we use best cloud security practices
  • Help customers make the best procurement decision for them
  • Define gaps and improve our security posture
  • Continuously improve and reach higher, third-party audited, security level and certification

With the successful submission of our self-assessment document to the CSA registry, we have completed our first step on the road to the full STAR Level 3 Goal.
