London, UK – Orbital today announced that it has joined a select group of just over 100 companies worldwide that has earned the Trusted Cloud Provider trustmark from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. Built upon existing CSA programs, the Trusted Cloud Provider trustmark (Orbital) assists consumers in identifying cloud providers that demonstrate their commitment to holistic security and are aligned with their individual security requirements.
“At Orbital, we understand and appreciate the evolving cybersecurity risk to our Company and ensure we invest in the security of our environment to protect our clients and our business. One of our key values at Orbital is Trust, and this important milestone demonstrates that whilst also providing assurance of our cloud security and personnel,” said Chris Mason, Orbital CEO. “We look forward to developing our relationship with the CSA, and helping to raise awareness against new and existing threats to security that could affect our clients and others globally.”
Cyber criminals are seizing new opportunities to attack, and against this ever-evolving threat landscape, companies like Orbital need to be more vigilant than ever to avoid cyber-attacks. Orbital continues to significantly enhance the way in which they secure data and ensure cloud systems and users remain protected. Aligning to the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) has helped Orbital provide assurance and demonstrate compliance to industry standards, frameworks and regulations.
“As an innovative and fast-growing global payments provider, we are thrilled to have Orbital join other cloud providers like Amazon, Google and Microsoft in earning CSA’s Trusted Cloud Provider trustmark,” said Jim Reavis, CEO and co-founder, Cloud Security Alliance. “The mark demonstrates the ongoing commitment Orbital has made to following best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.”

- have a current entry in the CSA Security, Trust, Assurance & Risk (STAR) registry
- have at least one current member of staff who has achieved the CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK)
- be a corporate member and volunteer at least 20 hours annually to CSA for activities such as research working groups, chapter events, blog post, and other work for the common good.
