The MSPAlliance Cyber Verify rating gives customers of cloud & managed services the assurance their provider is using the most current cyber security practices.
Locknet Managed IT announced that it has received the MSPAlliance® Cyber Verify™ Risk Assurance Rating for Managed Services and Cloud Providers. Cyber Verify is designed to provide consumers greater transparency and assurance when it comes to the cyber security practices of those providers.
Cyber Verify is based on the Unified Certification StandardTM (UCS) for Cloud and Managed Service Providers and governed by the International Association of Cloud and Managed Service Providers.
"Today, more than ever, the consumer needs assurance when it comes to matters of cyber security and IT risk. We are honored to award Locknet Managed IT with the “AAA” rated Cyber Verify seal and congratulate them on their exemplary display of dedication towards providing one of the highest levels of assurance possible to the consumer.” said Celia Weaver, President of MSPAlliance. “Today, less than 1% of the global MSP community has achieved a AAA Cyber Verify rating, placing Locknet Managed IT in a very elite group of managed service and cloud providers world-wide.”
Cyber Verify Rating System
The Cyber Verify evaluates many different aspects of a company’s service delivery, paying particular attention to security. Cyber Verify evaluates internal service delivery security practices, business continuity of the provider, cyber insurance usage, and many other characteristics which are important in the evaluation process of customers seeking out professional and secure providers.
Cyber Verify applies the following rating system:
- AAA - evaluates the provider’s cyber security practices on a 3-12 month period of review
- AA - evaluates the provider’s cyber security practices on a particular day
- A - evaluates the provider’s cyber security practices based on a thorough and in-depth self-attestation examination.
Cyber Verify must be renewed annually. The Cyber Verify is a first in the industry and specifically designed for outsourced service providers and the customers they service.
“We are extremely proud to have been recognized as a certified provider by MSPAlliance. The Cyber Verify rating demonstrates the high standards we adhere to in order to provide secure IT services to our customers,” said Peter Kujawa, President of Locknet.
