OVH guarantees that your Private Cloud complies with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, SOC 1 Type II (SSAE 16 and ISAE 3401) and SOC 2 Type II international certifications and PCI DSS level 1 certification.

ISO 27001, SOC 1 and SOC 2

OVH has gained ISO 27001 certification because it complies with ISO 27002 good information security management practices and ISO 27005 standards for risk assessment and risk handling.

SOC 1 Type II certifies that OVH has clearly defined and implemented controls to protect the data of its customers. SOC 2 Type II evaluates these controls against the international standard, established by the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) in its principles on confidential services (Trust Services Principles).
