QTS Richmond and Atlanta-Metro Data Centers Earn Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) High Baseline Authorization and Accreditation
QTS’ custom data center and colocation services at its Richmond and Atlanta-Metro mega data centers were tested under the latest version of FISMA. Veris Group, a leading third party assessment organization (3PAO), worked with QTS’ internal compliance team to audit both facilities’ operations.
Achieving FISMA High indicates that the data center and colocation services QTS provides are of critical importance to its government agency customers, since a breach of their integrity and availability would severely impact an agency’s ability to perform its primary mission.
"QTS is committed to the highest standards of transparency and compliance," said Oliver Schmidt, Chief Audit Executive - QTS. “In this time of increased cybersecurity threats aimed at our government, we understand the stringent information security requirements that federal agencies must adhere to, and we invest heavily in order to not only meet, but also exceed them.”
