Osiris Innovations Group – A PCI Compliant, SAS 70 Certified Data Center Case Study
The challenge OIG (Osiris Innovations Group) faced was to find a reliable partner that could host their Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. OIG provides e-business solutions to help companies reduce costs, errors and cycle times throughout their supply chain. Because their solutions are only offered as SaaS-based platform, they required 24X7 support availability with no unplanned outages. “It is extremely critical for us to have a provider that stands behind us and stands behind the reliability of our SaaS offering,” says David Saroli, Chief Executive Officer.
Another requirement OIG had was to find a PCI DSS Compliant data center. PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and is required for any company that accepts large volumes of credit card payments. The intent of this standard is to protect cardholder data (CHD) through an approach that covers every aspect of a technology-based solution, including documented policies, stringent physical security measures, encryption, firewall settings, and other access controls.
“It was very important to us to have a data center that is SAS 70 certified and be PCI compliant. We also wanted a data center that had a great track record with reliability and service. We found this all at Online Tech,” says Saroli.
As OIG’s exclusive SaaS hosting provider, Online Tech delivers their entire SaaS hosting platform including fully managed dedicated servers, 24X7 monitoring, operating system upgrades and complete management of any server issues that might arise. Each of Osiris’s servers are housed in one of Online Tech’s SAS 70, PCI compliant data centers.
As a SAS 70 data center operator, Online Tech has demonstrated their data centers have the proper controls and procedures around physical and network security, environmental controls, system availability, and performance. The SAS 70 audit confirms that those controls and procedures have been followed consistently over time.
“As a Michigan-based company, we feel very strongly that it is important to do business with a Michigan company when we can. We found a great reliable service provider with Online Tech, a Michigan data center company,” says Saroli.
