Riyadh, 26 Jan 2022 - NourNet has achieved the ANSI/TIA-942-B:2017 – Rated-3 constructed facility certification, validating NourNet as a data center provider with world-class facilities. The ANSI/TIA-942 (also known as TIA-942) certification is delivered by the largest TIA-942 audit and certification company in the world, EPI.
The TIA-942 Rated-3 certification is an independent validation that NourNet’s data center facility is concurrently maintainable, which means that it can undergo any scheduled maintenance with no downtime.

NourNet is also certified against ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 20000-1, ISO 9001, CSA gold, Payment Card Industry and Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and Threat and Vulnerability Risk Assessment (TVRA) compliant.

TIA-942 also stands out as the only data center facility standard in the world to have an official accreditation scheme.
