LATHAM, N.Y. – Leading Data Center and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today that their flagship Data Center in New York’s Tech Valley has received SSAE 18 SOC 1 & SOC 2 with HITRUST CSF certification. After a thorough audit, TurnKey Internet was deemed compliant with the regulations required to attain certification. The examination was conducted by SOC audit specialists The Moore Group CPA, LLC.

SSAE 18, previously known as SSAE 16 or SAS 70, contains the rules for a CPA firm conducting an attestation of a service organization’s internal controls and issuing a System and Organization Controls (SOC) report. The SOC certification audit investigates several core areas: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. It verifies that TurnKey Internet’s Data Center is of the utmost security, integrity, and reliability. It confirms that TurnKey Internet has procedures and safety precautions of the highest certification standard in place to ensure the security of the facility and its clients’ data within.


In addition to the SSAE 18 SOC 1 & SOC 2 certifications, TurnKey also earned HITRUST CSF certification. This certification demonstrates TurnKey’s compliance with U.S. federal and state government HIPAA regulations, standards and frameworks, regarding the security and protection of electronic personal healthcare information. This achievement places TurnKey Internet in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned HITRUST CSF certification and maintain a HIPAA compliant data center.

“Attaining the SSAE 18 SOC 1 & SOC 2 with HITRUST CSF certification was a significant goal and milestone for us,” remarked Adam Wills, President and CEO of TurnKey Internet. “We pride ourselves on our unparalleled reliability, security, quality of service, and—most importantly—customer satisfaction. This certification not only proves that we are excelling in those areas, but also assures our new and existing clients that they are receiving the best possible service and data protection available.”

Lastly, an increasing amount of QuadraNet’s growth has been driven by their focused efforts expanding from the SMB space into offering high-quality Enterprise Solutions; deployments that are completely architected for meeting the higher-availability requirements and compliance requirements of a wide-range of enterprises and industries.
