Data Security

GlobalVision is committed to the protection and integrity of information to ensure that data remains confidential for our employees, third parties, and users. Appropriate systems are used to protect against theft, abuse and other forms of harm and loss and to maintain the 24/7/365 access of services. We strive to ensure the availability and reliability of our network infrastructure and the services supplied and operated by us.

SoftLayer (GlobalVision‘s hosting provider) is SSAE 16 certified

GlobalVision runs on servers provided by SoftLayer technologies to deliver our service. SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements) has replaced the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) as the primary standard for reporting on controls at service organizations. It is an attestation standard issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Specifically, SSAE 16 addresses engagements conducted by service auditors on service organizations for purposes of reporting on the design of controls and their operating effectiveness. See Softlayer certifications.
