The Paratus Group announced that all five of its data centres (DCs) have been awarded several stamps of approval for quality management, information security, and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards certifications.
Paratus has built and runs two data centres in Luanda, Angola; one in Lusaka, Zambia; two in Namibia, one in Windhoek and one in Swakopmund, as well as the Paratus Equiano Cable Landing Station.
Its DCs in Angola and Namibia were the first carrier-neutral, Tier-III by-design DCs in those countries.
Generally, ISO certifications are seals of approval from the International Standardisation Organisation, verifying that a company adheres to extremely high international standards in all its practices.
This assures African and global customers that the Paratus Group offers unrivalled service levels, security, and overall DC management.
According to Paratus Group chief executive Schalk Erasmus, the company has reached the optimum certification required for all five of its DCs.
“This fits with our vision and aim of transforming Africa through exceptional digital infrastructure and customer service. We’ve passed the international inspections, and in turn, we will help enable our customers to implement their local and international digital business strategies. This, together with providing Africa’s quality network, means we’re helping to ‘unlimit’ the future of Africa.”
