STT Connect achieves highest certification for multi-tier cloud security standard

CLOUD enablement company in the ST Telemedia portfolio, STT Connect, has achieved Multi-Tier Cloud Security Singapore Standard (MTCS SS 584) at Level 3, the highest certification level.

Announcing it on Wednesday, the Singapore-based STT Connect said it has met the Standard's most stringent cloud security requirements demanded by enterprises with high impact information, such as medical and financial records.

The firm has also received the ISO27001 certification, the international standard for information security management systems.

Carried out by accredited third-party certification bodies, the MTCS Standard is the world's first cloud security standard that covers multiple tiers of cloud security and SS 584 is a requirement in cloud services bulk tenders for government procurement of cloud services.

STT Connect's chairman Bruno Lopez added that since its launch in 2016, the team at STT Connect has "rapidly built a secure, enterprise-grade private cloud, backed by industry-leading service level agreements and expert support".

"The recognitions by esteemed industry standards bodies are strong validations of the STT Connect team's good progress in distinguishing themselves in the highly competitive cloud market. As our customers' needs evolve, we will continue to invest in and develop world-class security solutions to meet their most mission-critical needs," he said.
