SSAE16 Certified Data Center

Providing world-class facilities that meet your rigorous standards for compliance and precision.

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

  • SSAE16 Compliance – The SSAE16 audit minimizes 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.

    The completion of SSAE16 SOC-1 Type II audits for Equinix IBX® data centers varies by location and facility in the United States. Learn More
  • ISO Certification – ISO is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards. For Equinix, ISO certification means that we can offer products and services which meet and exceed the specifications of our customers by implementing the quality, safety, security, environmental and energy management standards with the widest possible acceptance in our sector.

  • LEED Certification – LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
