eHosting DataFort Becomes First Company In The Middle East To Achieve the CSA STAR Certification

eHDF awarded the highest Gold rating after a rigorous audit process by British Standards Institution

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, September 27, 2015: eHosting DataFort (eHDF), the region’s leading managed hosting and cloud infrastructure services provider, today announced that it has become the first company in the Middle East to achieve Cloud Security Alliance’s Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (CSA STAR) certification. After undergoing a rigorous audit process conducted by British Standards Institution (BSI) to measure the company’s security capability levels, eHDF was awarded the Gold rating, which is the highest rating that can be awarded to any cloud services provider (CSP).

Speaking on this achievement, Yasser Zeineldin, CEO, eHosting DataFort said, “As part of our ongoing commitment to provide the highest levels of cloud security and compliance to our customers, we are very proud to announce that eHDF has become the first company in the Middle East to achieve the CSA STAR certification with a Gold rating. CSA STAR Certification is a rigorous assessment by a CSA-recognized independent body and provides customers with a benchmark to make informed decisions on cloud services.
Achieving the coveted certification shows eHDF’s leadership and commitment to delivering professional and secure cloud services through world-class best practices.”

The STAR Certification is based upon achieving ISO/IEC 27001 and the specified set of criteria outlined in the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM). An independent assessment conducted by an external assessment body assigns ‘Management Capability’ scores to each of the CCM security domains and each domain is scored on a specific maturity. Depending on the overall score, the CSP is then awarded a Gold, Silver or Bronze rating and in some cases, no rating.

"I applaud eHDF for leading by example as the first company in the Middle East to become CSA STAR certified; this is a fantastic achievement. CSA STAR Certification is a unique new scheme developed to address specific issues relating to cloud security as an enhancement to ISO/IEC 27001. The Cloud Control Matrix (CCM) was created in response to growing business concerns by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not for profit organization with a mission to promote best practice in cloud computing. CCM provides organizations with the needed structure, detail and clarity relating to information security tailored to cloud computing,’ said Ahmad Al Khatib, General Manager, Assurance for BSI Middle East and Africa.

eHosting DataFort has established itself as a market leader in the field of managed hosting and cloud infrastructure services. The company has been recognised year-on-year as the ‘Best Managed Service Provider of the Year’ across the Middle East.
