(The Hosting News) – Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), a leading global provider of compliant hosting, managed dedicated hosting and on-demand virtualization/cloud computing services, is expanding its PCI Compliant footprint by further hardening its already highly secure Dallas and Chicago data centers. Layered Tech expects to complete the enhancements and further segregation within the Dallas SAS 70 Type II audited data center this month and recently expanded to support PCI compliance in Chicago. These latest enhancements support growing customer demands for PCI compliance, disaster recovery, business continuity and production environments in these markets.
“Compliant hosting is a core competency of Layered Tech, and by creating standalone PCI compliant environments in our Dallas and Chicago facilities, we have even more flexible options for customers, who either prefer their primary compliant hosting to be in Dallas or Chicago, or have disaster recovery or other business reasons for geographic diversity between data centers,” said Layered Tech President Brad Hokamp. “Our commitment to providing a higher standard of compliance and security permeates everything we do at Layered Tech. Expanding our compliant hosting solutions to our Dallas and Chicago facilities is a key step, and we’re already planning similar enhancements at additional locations worldwide.”
Along with facilities in the UK, Canada and the Netherlands, Layered Tech’s wholly owned, 77,000-square-foot data center in Kansas City, Mo., has long supported the operational protocols necessary to meet the toughest industry standards, including PCI DSS, HIPAA and SAS 70. Layered Tech recently added redundant, 10G transit circuits to its Kansas City data center to expand its enterprise-class capabilities and stay ahead of growing customer demands. In addition, Layered Tech added redundant, 10G circuits between its Dallas, Chicago and Kansas City data centers to support customers’ increased need to securely share data between each location, as well as provide additional options for disaster recovery and business continuity services.
Layered Tech’s global footprint includes data centers in Kansas City, Dallas, Chicago, London, Berlin and Amsterdam.
