Fujitsu moves ahead with greater cloud security

September 18, 2015

The Jamaica Observer


FUJITSU is driving for more market share for its cloud services now that its Enterprise Operations Centre (EOC) in Trinidad has become the first cloud provider in the Caribbean region to have ISO 27001 certification and to meet the Type 2 SOC 2 criteria for security, availability and confidentiality.

Fujitsu believes the achievement helps to separate Fujitsu from the growing number of cloud providers on the market.

"Our customers can be assured that the highest level of internal controls and security are established and maintained," said Evan Hemans, EVP, Core Services for Fujitsu Caribbean, Central America and Mexico, in a recent news release.

"These accomplishments are a further testament of our security-driven approach to service excellence, and cements our position as the premier facility in the region capable of securely delivering highly available cloud services to our valued clients."

The result proves Fujitsu's focus on security and helps to increase consumer confidence in the cloud, said Andres Thomas, VP, Data Centre & Infrastructure Services, Fujitsu Caribbean, Central America and Mexico.

"For cloud customers this is vital, because they need assurance that their business and mission-critical applications are hosted in a reliable and secure facility. The Facility Certification by Uptime Institute also means that customers have proof of a comprehensive infrastructure review of our DC infrastructure, before using Fujitsu's Cloud services," Thomas said.

Fujitsu Caribbean is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Fujitsu Group and is a part of Fujitsu America Inc. Fujitsu has been operating in the Caribbean for more than 60 years and has offices in Jamaica, Barbados, Bahamas, Trinidad and Mexico, with business agents and partners in other islands.
