Stream Data Centers VP Discusses Security and Compliance  with Data Center Frontier

Times are exciting for the US data center market. The growth of the enterprise cloud computing market is encouraging data center operators across the country to expand their existing capacity and invest in hyperscale facilities that can meet growing demand for space, power and cooling solutions.

Our Vice President of Network & Cloud, Eric Ballard, recently joined four other industry influencers as part of Data Center Frontier’s 11th Data Center Executive Roundtable, hosted by Rich Miller, Founder and Editor of the publication. Together, the panelists discussed the issue of security and whether cloud and colocation service provider facilities are more secure now than on-premises data centers.

“As a premier colocation provider, security is one of our core competencies,” Eric says in the roundtable article. “With a focus on physical security and a rigid enforcement and testing of security policy and procedure, we can absolutely make the case that we are more secure.”

What is driving enterprises to move away from proprietary data centers? How do leading data center providers ensure physical security? How can providers use real-time analytics (AI) to capture anomalies that point to potential cyberattacks on critical systems?  

Together, the panelists address these questions as well as the critical role of third-party certifications like SOC2-Type2, PCI-DSS and HIPAA in assuring enterprises that a service provider’s data centers are secure.
