Security

Know you're covered, with Revera's security assurances.

Security in depth

Securely delivering service to our clients is top priority for Revera. We power solutions for our customers that are critical to their business, and in many cases their obligations to the citizens of New Zealand.

Our customers benefit from the fact our data centers and platforms are architected and built to meet the requirements of the most security sensitive organisations including New Zealand government.

Security design is inherent in every aspect of our service design process, and we operate regular security validation processes including internal and third party audits and vulnerability testing to ensure security and compliance.

Revera utilises a very standardised building block approach to deliver our services, which significantly reduces the number of different components and vectors that need to be protected making it easier to maintain secure systems and staff knowledge.

Revera operates a business wide information security management system, and standardises all our platforms to the highest customer demands.

Our staff are highly skilled and experienced, and subject to satisfactory Ministry of Justice Criminal Record checks and are continuously educated via our security awareness programmes.

 

Security Standards Compliance

Revera operates a security risk management policy and framework based on ISO31000.

Revera’s approach to our Virtual Data Centre (VDC) platform security is aligned with AS/NZS ISO/IEC 27001:2013.

All Revera services, including our VDCs, are subject to the Revera ITIL v3 IT Service Management framework.  All changes to the physical infrastructure and logical environment, including security changes, are managed through Revera’s change management process. This includes notifying clients where required.

Our data centres meet essential physical security requirements specified in ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and ISO/IEC 27002:2013. These are designed and located, to provide resilience and maintain operations in the event of reduced power, equipment failure, maintenance outages and natural disasters.

The data centres at Trentham, Takanini and Perimeter Road (Christchurch) are rated Tier 3, and the facility at Albany is rated Tier 2 (based on the Uptime Institute and TIA942 tier ratings) to ensure high levels of physical security, availability, and continuity.
