Tata Communications’ IZO achieves Singapore certification

Tata Communications has announced that its IZO Private Cloud service has been awarded the Multi-Tier Cloud Security (MTCS) Level 3 certification, which is the highest level of Singapore’s Cloud Service Provider (CSP) certification.

MTCS Level 3 certification is designed to serve regulated client organisations with specific requirements and stringent security requirements for their data hosting. The Singapore instance of the IZO private cloud is now able to service these organisations, host high impact data and offer the strictest security norms.

The Multi-Tier Cloud Security (MTCS) Singapore Standard (SS) 584 is the world’s first cloud security standard that covers multiple tiers of cloud security and was developed under the Information Technology Standards Committee (ITSC) for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) in Singapore. It can be adopted by Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to meet different cloud user needs for data sensitivity and business criticality. Certification of the CSP is carried out by accredited third-party Certification Bodies.

The IZO Private Cloud service is underpinned by Tata Communications’ global network, IZO ecosystem, and is backed by world class managed services and 24×7 support to provide our customers with seamless access to network, cloud and security services globally. Tata Communications’ IZO Private Cloud customers in Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific include Constantin Medien, a Germany-based international media company specialising in sports, entertainment and event marketing, and its media production subsidiary PLAZAMEDIA; Khimji Ramdas, an Oman-based conglomerate with operations across consumer products, infrastructure, lifestyle and logistics; and SkyLab, a Singapore-based IoT technology solutions provider.
