Global Leader of Third-Party Maintenance Services Also Awarded SOC 2 Certification for Entire ParkView Managed Services Portfolio.

CLEVELAND, OH, March 22, 2022 – Park Place Technologies, the leading global data center and networking optimization firm, announced today that it has been certified ISO 27001:2013 and SOC 2 (Type 1) compliant.

This important milestone demonstrates that Park Place Technologies, and its subsidiaries utilize industry best practices for securing and operating their global services and the processes that deliver them. This was validated by one of the industry’s most well-known standards boards. The ISO 27001:2013 certification applies to Park Place globally, to Curvature Hardware sales, and Entuity Software.

ISO 27001:2013 is a global standard for information security, published by International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The robust requirements of this security management framework ensure best practices for securing assets including corporate information, intellectual property, employee information, and information entrusted by third parties.

“We know that it is valuable to have trusted third-party reports when considering a technology investment, said John Parlee, Chief Information Security Officer. “We spent the time and engaged our teams to demonstrate how we provide trusted services to our customers.”

Park Place Technologies has also successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type I audit and received its compliance certification. SOC 2 is an audit program developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to evaluate the security controls of the systems used to process data. These reports demonstrate corporate governance and oversight of the security program.

Park Place is committed to compliance and maintenance of the ISO 27001 standard and SOC 2 (Type 1) and is planning to pursue a SOC 2 (Type 2) certification.

“Data privacy and security are a top priority for businesses,” said Chris Adams, Park Place President and CEO.” “There is a significant investment in time and finance in obtaining these certifications,” Adams continued.  Our ongoing certifications provide our customers with assurance of our commitment to the highest standards of security.”

“Receiving the ISO27001 and SOC 2 certification, is a great example of why Park Place Technologies is the trusted leader in global data center and networking optimization,” Parlee said. “These certifications prove our commitment to security, and intentional focus on protecting information that has been entrusted to us.”

Michael Cantor, Chief Information Officer, had this to say, “When it comes to our customers, we do what is right. Not only do we rely upon certified third-party partners in the delivery of our services, but we have fully certified our operations across the organization to ensure consistent security. If you look at the vendor landscape today, you don’t always see the investment in certifying all operations versus certifying a small portion.”
