OneNet has become the first local company to get the Cloud Security Alliance STAR registration, a prerequisite for compliance with the NZ Cloud Computing Code of Practice.

The Cloud Security Alliance is a worldwide member-driver organisation chartered with promoting the use of best practices for security assurance within cloud computing and STAR is a free, publicly accessible registry that documents the security controls provided by different cloud computing offerings.

The local cloud provider has now completed the registration process and became the ninth cloud provider in the world, alongside the likes of Microsoft and Terremark (a Verizon subsidiary), to meet the criteria.

“This means one more indication that our solutions are transparent and provide lower risk,” says OneNet’s owner, Michael Snowden. “It gives resellers more confidence to recommend us to customers.”

OneNet’s cloud services currently include hosted Microsoft server applications, desktop-as-a-service, storage-as-a-service, infrastructure-as-a-service and delivering applications for software-as-a-service partners.

OneNet continues its mission to increase the percentage of its revenue that comes through the channel. In a recent interview with Reseller News, Snowden said the goal is “to have 90 percent of our revenue coming through resellers”.
