  • Administrative safeguards 
  • Physical safeguards

Specifically, the examinations scrutinized the controls OneNeck has in place at their top-tier data centers in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon and Wisconsin. OneNeck’s ReliaCloud® Infrastructure as a Service and colocation services were both examined as part of the review.
