We are pleased to announce that we have attained accreditation to the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF).

Here at Sherr Technologies we pride ourselves on our commitment to provide a quality service based on best practice and to continually strive to improve the behind the scenes processes to give confidence in our Virtuoso platform, the other cloud services we provide and confidence in the security of clients' data. To demonstrate this we have tested our processes and ways of working to ensure they are compliant with those defined by the CIF and we are delighted by their announcement.
The purpose of the Code of Practice for Cloud Service Providers is to bring greater transparency and trust to doing business in the cloud. Code of Practice-certified Cloud Service Providers have declared and committed to providing good quality services that adhere to the guidelines and best practices as defined by the Cloud Industry Forum.
Commenting on the company’s reasons for certifying against the CIF Code of Practice, Stephen Killick, Sherr Technologies' Finance Director, said: “In spite of growing rates of adoption within UK organisations, there remains a good amount of confusion and misinformation about cloud, the security of the delivery model and the regulatory framework governing where and how data can be stored. Among others, these are areas on which end users still need greater reassurance and clarity on, which is why we feel that the Code of Practice is so important. Certifying against the Code of Practice means that customers and prospects can immediately see that we are trustworthy, can offer them good, safe advice, and are transparent in the way that we operate and handle data.
Russell Sherr, Technical Director added “The CIF Code of Practice is, in our view, just what the industry needs to improve standards in the delivery of cloud services, and ultimately to ensure that the cloud industry is sustainable and accountable to end users. We would therefore encourage other CSPs to follow our example and get certified.”
