(The Hosting News) – Carpathia, a leading provider of hybrid cloud services and managed hosting, today announced that Metrolink Networks, the cloud migration, IT consulting and information security specialists, has selected Carpathia to secure its IT infrastructure in the IBX Vault, one of the industry’s most advanced, secure and federally compliant data centers.
“Carpathia’s understanding of our environment and ability to ensure that mission-critical IT operations run effectively and efficiently has helped us both control costs and deliver better service to our customers,” said Husein Sharaf, CTO at Metrolink.
Metrolink Networks is an emerging provider of compliant cloud services, as well as managed services and IT consulting with a focus on information assurance and data security. Led by a highly experienced team with experience providing engineering and management services to both federal and commercial customers, Metrolink needed to find a highly secure data center facility to support state and federal customers.
Metrolink selected Carpathia and its IBX Vault to colocate their infrastructure and address the demands of their growing business. Carpathia’s physical security capabilities — such as two-factor authentication, biometric hand scans, man traps, employee background checks and specific personnel access requirements to customer equipment — enables Metrolink to meet the facility security requirements of compliance standards, such as FISMA, PCI, HIPAA, and FedRAMP.
Additionally, because Carpathia’s IBX Vault facility connects into the Equinix Ashburn campus via a secure private fiber connection, Metrolink also has access to multiple Tier 1 Telecommunication carriers.
“Metrolink maintains sensitive data on their infrastructure and requires a service provider that can adhere to the industry’s most stringent physical security and compliance standards,” said Philip Hedlund, vice president of business operations at Carpathia. “Our secure, connected and compliant facilities enable us to uniquely serve customers, like Metrolink, who require physical and cyber security.”
