Local cloud computing firm Cloud Carib has received the highly sought Trusted Cloud Provider designation from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). It is the only firm in the region to have been awarded such a distinction.
The company’s Chief Executive Officer Scott MacKenzie said the designation is proof of the quality of services provided by the company.
“Our mandate, since the very beginning, has been to meet and exceed the expectations of our clients at every level,” said MacKenzie in a press statement.
“To meet that mandate, we continue to create and maintain relationships with our various technology and industry partners who have been instrumental in meeting the ever-evolving data security strategies needed to advance the region.
“The CSA’s dedication to ensuring secure cloud computing environments is in line with our company’s ongoing focus on promoting greater data sovereignty, so being accepted as its newest member is another feather in our cap, which aligns with our growth strategy.”
Cloud Carib revealed in its statement that it would soon introduce its Cloud Carib Centre of Excellence. According to the company’s Chief Technology Officer Stelios Xeroudakis, the Center of Excellence will be a place where technologists will come together to collaborate as a global team of experts and partners.
“We’ve designed it to be a cutting-edge ICT facility which will attract and accommodate the next generation of industry professionals from across the Caribbean region and further lay the foundation for The Bahamas as a tech hub,” said Xeroudakis.
“Cloud Carib has worked to build a reputation of excellence focusing on high trust cloud services and data sovereignty in the Caribbean and Latin America,” the statement noted.
“Now the company is highly regarded as the premier cloud services provider in multiple verticals across Latin America and The Caribbean.
“For Cloud Carib, joining the CSA represents the furtherance of the company’s commitment to bringing secure, resilient cloud services to the region.”
CSA co-founder Jim Reavis noted how far Cloud Carib has come and the expertise it has been able to bring to the region.
“We are excited about the growth that we’ve seen from Cloud Carib and are pleased to welcome them and their expertise to our group of stakeholders, as we remain committed to providing a forum through which diverse parties can work together to create and maintain a trusted cloud ecosystem,” said Reavis.
Cloud Carib has data centers in Jamaica, Barbados, Panama, Ecuador, Nassau and Freeport.
