ONIX Data Center has announced that it has received its ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 9001:2015 certification from MSECB. This is the product of four months of hard work and dedication by the Onix team, as well as consultants from Infoprive Security Limited. This achievement signifies a remarkable milestone for ONIX Data Centres Ltd. It also solidifies their commitment to continually provide their customers and partners the highest quality services possible.
Mike Nahon, Onix CEO stated that “I am very thankful to the team and Infoprive for all the hard work put in to secure these very important certifications. With them we solidify our position as the number one data centre in the region, conforming to all international standards.”
The ISO 27001 certification ensures that organisations understand their security needs and then implement measures that reduce the risk of data breaches and personal or sensitive data loss. Michael Thompson, Onix’ Facility Manager, stated that “our security needs have been identified, and controls have been implemented. Our customers and partners will be assured that their data housed in our facility, is entirely secure, and the risk of data breaches is minute.”
The ISO 9001 certification ensures organisations meet their customer’s needs within statutory regulations relating to the product or services they offer. This international standard has helped us emphasise the use of procedures and documentation to regulate and control how processes should be performed.
This internationally recognised certification as well as their Tier IV status, demonstrates that Onix offers world class services, unmatchable by any other Data Centre in the region. Data assets of clients remain secure to the highest specifications, and Onix are eligible to house the most sensitive data. Onix is continuously seeking to improve industry standards to ensure clients and partners are assured of the best possible service.

Onix Data Centres Limited
Onix Data Centres Ltd owns and operates Data Centres in the Africa region. Its flagship facility is the top-rated Tier IV certified, co-location, carrier neutral Data Centre based in Accra, Ghana, the only one of its kind in the region.
As a Tier IV, enterprise class facility, Onix Data Center offers stable, reliable, and uninterrupted service with an annual expected uptime of 99.995%. As a colocation facility, clients benefit from world class cooling systems, fire suppression systems and back up energy redundancy with minimal costs compared to building and maintaining an in-house data facility.

The official accreditation (Uptime tier IV rated, PCI-DSS) satisfies the increasingly stringent requirements laid down by regulated entities such as telecommunications companies, banks, social media companies, health care facilities, the education sector and various arms of the government which house sensitive information, all of which collocate their servers at the facilities.
