BIOS Middle East (BIOS), the GCC’s local cloud and managed services provider, has earned the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Security Trust Assurance and Risk (STAR) Level 2 certification, a rigorous third-party assessment of a cloud service provider’s security.

BIOS owns, operates, and manages CloudHPT, its own cloud, with datacenters in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Jeddah, and Muscat. For over 500 customers in the GCC and beyond, it provides fully managed IaaS and Gartner-recognized DRaaS.

Dominic Docherty, Managing Director, BIOS said, “Achieving CSA certification is a testament to BIOS’s continuous investment and improvement in security practices, services and products. We are always ensuring the highest levels of security for our customers.”

This certification verifies that a cloud service provider meets the applicable requirements of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 management system standard and has addressed critical cloud security requirements outlined in the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix criteria. BIOS is also ISO-IEC 27001 certified (Information Security Management Systems), ISO-IEC 27017 certified (Information Security Controls for Cloud Services), ISO-IEC 27018 certified (Protection of Personally Identifiable Information in Public Clouds), and ISO 9001 certified (Quality Management Systems).

Adam Wolf, Technical Director, BIOS said, “We use industry-leading products and services to offer layered security on our cloud. Protecting customer data is of utmost importance and we monitor all traffic in and out of our cloud through a state-of-art Security Operations Centre (SOC).”

BIOS certification can be obtained from the CSA STAR Registry. The registry also includes BIOS’s CSA STAR Level 1 Self-Assessment and the completed Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ).
