As a provider of hosting services for mainframes, PSR follows compliance regulations for storing data in the cloud. PSR is certified in SOC 2 compliance, guaranteeing control over the accessibility of customer data to maintain confidentiality. We meet SOC 2 compliance by putting processes in place for monitoring known and unknown threats, receiving anomaly alerts, and responding to and tracking incidents.

We are the only IBM Premier Business Partner whose singular focus is z Systems and z attached storage, and we at PSR take our commitment to our customers seriously.

That is why we are pleased to have completed a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II attestation for our global controls supporting our IBM mainframe hosting and disaster recovery services. The SOC 2 report focuses on a business’s nonfinancial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. The Trust Service Principles on which SOC 2 is based are modeled around five broad areas:

“Successfully completing a SOC 2 Type II audit is a significant accomplishment for any organization. The controls you have in place and continue to maintain are an excellent indication of the suitable control environment you’ve developed to properly serve your customers.”
