PCI DSS certification at Level 1 Service Provider status builds on Datum's ISO27001 and ISO 9001 accreditation and continues to demonstrate Datum's ability to deliver a secure environment for its clients' critical IT infrastructures.
Datum provides secure co-location to enterprise and service providers within its highly resilient data centre. The Datum PCI is underpinned by its secure facilities, specific and documented processes, advanced technology and by its people.
