UKFast's accreditations show our commitment to continuous business improvement through our people, practices and technology in the hosting, data centres and colocation services sphere.
We are PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant in our operational business processes relating to the payment card industry.
PCI DSS is a worldwide security standard assembled by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
Our operational business infrastructure is compliant to the PCI DSS, which is a worldwide security standard assembled by the PCI SSC.
The PCI security standards are technical and operational requirements that were created to help organisations that process card payments to prevent credit card fraud, hacking and various other security vulnerabilities and threats.
The standards apply to all organisations that store, process or transmit cardholder data - with guidance for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions. A company processing, storing, or transmitting cardholder data should be PCI DSS compliant.
The Standard requires merchants and member service providers (MSPs) who store, process or transmit cardholder data to:
Reducing our environmental impact is a key priority. Therefore we are very proud to have achieved PAS 2060 certification - making us the 1st certified carbon neutral hosting company in the UK.
The Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 2060 for the demonstration of carbon neutrality was published in June 2010 by The British Standards Institution (BSI.) PAS 2060 exists to help businesses reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, meet their environmental objectives and validate their carbon neutrality statements.
Being certified to this standard demonstrates how we have offset all CO2 emissions from head office, data centre operations, and the energy used by commuters. As the first certified 100% carbon neutral hosting company, all existing and new client services are also entirely carbon neutral.
The accreditation defines carbon neutrality as a "condition in which there is no net increase in the global emission of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere as a result of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the subject." Read more about carbon neutral hosting
We provide secure web hosting to clients worldwide, offering hosting services certified to the ISO 27001:2008 standard - ensuring the security of your own, and your customer's, data.
Ensuring information security can be a complicated issue, but one that all businesses involved in storing, processing or transmitting data must address. We've had to prove that our daily procedures allow us to store data, accessibly but safely. We've shown that our actions as a business display a level of security that reduces the risk of breaches in the confidentiality, integrity or availability of data to a minimum.
We've proved that we take information security incredibly seriously by achieving ISO27001:2008 certification across all of our business operations.
We have implemented an internal Quality Management System (QMS) which is certified to ISO9001:2008. The QMS is continually maintained and improved to ensure that we meet, if not exceed, the expectations of our clients.
Certification through the scheme identifies us as one of the brightest and best independent consultants to compete on a level playing field for public sector and corporate projects.
As part of our commitment to managing our carbon footprint, we are certified to the environmental standards of ISO14001.
ISO 14001 is an internationally-recognised certificate for evaluating how well an organisation manages its environmental responsibilities. We also monitor and measure greenhouse gas emissions as directed by the ISO 14064-1:2006(E) standard, along with guidance issued by DECC and Defra.
We are the only data centre owner and operator in the UK to be an approved NICEIC electrical contractor.
Employing fully qualified, in-house design and engineering staff, the accreditation enables us to undertake electrical installation and maintenance within our data centres and property portfolio, without the need for third party contractors.
The IIP standard is the UK's leading people management business improvement standard because it delivers improved performance to thousands of organisations.
We pride ourselves on our passionate, supportive team and our Investor in People accreditation demonstrates our commitment to continuous business improvement. It is also an excellent tool that can be used to identify ways of raising our organisation's performance to an even higher level and as a framework for continuous development.
