Equinix Earns ISO 27001 Certification For Data Centers In Switzerland

Zurich and Geneva data centers meet international standard for information security

ZURICH / GENEVA, SWITZERLAND — August 18, 2011 — Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced that it has successfully passed the external audit for ISO 27001 certification for its six International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers in Switzerland.

The ISO 27001 audit specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Information Security Management System, taking into account the organization’s overall business risks. A neutral, independent agency conducts the audit and assesses the operation of a data center, as well as all available applications, IT systems, processes and services provided by the organization’s employees and contractors.

This accreditation verifies that the ISO information security standard is now an integral component of all business processes within Equinix’s data centers in Zurich and Geneva.

“Equinix designs and builds all of its IBXs to the highest operational standard, particularly where security is concerned,” says Marco Dottarelli, managing director of Equinix Switzerland. “We are delighted to earn this certification for all our data centers in Switzerland. It demonstrates our commitment to providing robust information security measures that preserve the integrity of our customers’ sensitive information.”
