IBX Standards and Compliance

Equinix is committed to operating facilities that meet the rigorous standards and compliance needs of global businesses. Equinix works with several regulatory and standards organisations to ensure compliance – from operation of the data centre to sustainability and environmental regulations.


SSAE16 Compliance

The SSAE16 audit minimises the need for multiple sets of auditors to separately examine the same set of controls that govern a third party's services. "SAS" is an acronym for Statement on Auditing Standards, which are standards issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
