iCIMS, a leading provider of Web-based Hiring Management Solutions, announced that it has recently signed a deal with AT&T to upgrade and outsource its data center operations. Under the agreement, all of iCIMSÂ solutions, including the #1-ranked iRecruiterÂ Hiring Management Solution, will be hosted at AT&TÂs SAS-70 Type II Certified New Jersey Internet Data Center (IDC). By providing round-the-clock management and monitoring of the operations, AT&T will help to ensure that iCIMS maintains its already stellar system availability of 99.9965%, while allowing iCIMS to concentrate on its core capabilities of developing software, and supporting customers. AT&T operates 26 IDCs around the world.
ÂAlthough iCIMS meets all security and redundancy needs of our customers today, this move is being made in anticipation of strong continued customer growth, a furthered commitment to protect Customer Data under the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act, and the need for unparalleled data center capabilities in an ever-competitive marketplace,Â notes Colin Day, president & CEO of iCIMS. ÂWe see this move as an incredible added benefit to our customersÂ existing iCIMS services and a way to provide additional peace-of-mind for the security, integrity, and hosting of their business-critical data.Â
The AT&T Internet Data Center further improves iCIMS redundancy and disaster recovery plans through such benefits as:
-Multiple OC48 Internet Connections, with redundancy through multiple distinct cities
-State-of-the-art Cooling Units, with N+1 redundancy
-State-of-the-art Electrical Distribution Systems, with 2N redundancy
-State-of-the-art Fire Prevention Systems, with VESDA smoke detection
-State-of-the-art Security Systems, including unmarked data center, armed guard, camera, and biometric scanning and card key access at multiple security check points.
ÂiCIMS has twice been ranked the fastest growing provider in our industry, with over 250 total customers and 175 new customer signings in the last two years alone,Â continues Day. ÂWe wanted to ensure that iCIMS took proactive steps so that we could not only support this type of growth today, but could also expand our product lines and offerings within a scalable environment for the future. Although many hosting companies were evaluated, AT&T presented the strongest solution in terms of security, redundancy and scalability. AT&TÂs SAS-70 Type II certification also played a key role in the decision-making process as more and more companies become aware of, and concerned with, data security issues. We look forward to working with AT&T well into the future.Â
