FinScan, a leading global provider of sanctions/Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) screening solutions, document verification, and sanctions lists today announced the opening of a data center in the Cayman Islands.
The new location was added to meet FinScan's rapidly growing international client base and complements other data centers in the United States, Canada, and Germany.
Growing client interest in software as a service (SaaS), or "hosted", options has driven FinScan's global expansion. The new Cayman location was added to serve clients in Latin America and offshore locations such as in the Caribbean who prefer their choice of jurisdiction and location to meet data privacy concerns and operational processing windows.
"FinScan has data centers positioned in key areas of the world to improve service to our international client base," said Bob Colonna, FinScan's CEO. We anticipate that the Cayman facility will provide a resource not only for our clients in the Americas, but those in EMEA and APAC as well.
FinScan has established a second Cayman facility as an extra measure of security to help ensure FinScan's customers do not experience any breaks in service should there be a catastrophic failure. To date, FinScan has not had a server go out of service at any of its facilities. Clients and third parties regularly review FinScan's security measures and perform penetration tests. All locations have passed these stringent requirements.
"Our primary focus is on providing our customers with the most efficient and secure service possible," said Michael Ott, FinScan's senior vice president. "Our fast implementation and record of 100% data center uptime make FinScan a safe choice for organizations requiring reliable, fast turnaround."
