IJsselstein, 15 January 2014 - Motiv has joined the Dutch Hosting Provider Association (DHPA) as a business partner. With this, the ICT Security specialist supports the DHPA's objective to keep the very strong hosting market transparent for its end users. In addition, the DHPA is committed to quality and professionalism where information security deserves increasing attention. Motiv is pre-eminently the party to contribute to that attention to information security within the hosting and cloud provider sector.

The DHPA foundation is a collaboration between market-leading hosting and cloud providers and market-leading suppliers. The DHPA represents a sector that has grown in the past decades into a factor that is important for the entire economy. The Dutch online sector facilitates more than twenty percent of the total e-commerce turnover in Europe and is one of the largest in the world. By using core values ​​such as professionalism, quality and transparency, DHPA participants contribute to the confidence in the online industry.

Every day, billions of transactions are carried out via the internet, organizations outsource their ICT affairs and new and innovative internet services go online. Online services are provided by companies and individuals who place their sites and applications with a hosting company. Service providers promise high availability and excellent information security without exception, but their brochure and site can not be measured to what extent these promises are guaranteed by effective management controls. This lack of transparency with regard to service levels and quality can easily lead to a wrong choice, while service failures and data leakage increasingly turn out to have a large, even social impact.

This dependence on hosting and cloud providers and the increase in the number of threats on the internet results in attention to information security, continuity, combating cybercrime and unlawful content and the legal implications of hosting and as-a-service.

In addition to services in the field of information provision and security, Motiv also offers cloud and data center services. "We are fully committed to secure hosting, e-mail and web security from the cloud and a cloud service developed in-house for extremely secure file exchange for the business market, called mSafe", says Ton Mooren, managing director of Motiv. "As a business partner of the DHPA, we commit ourselves to their quality requirements. We want to show how much value we attach to continuous improvement of our services and offer our customers an extra assurance that the availability, security and confidentiality of their IT systems at Motiv are guaranteed. "

Michiel Steltman, director at DHPA: "We are pleased with Motiv's decision to join as a business partner. Motiv has an excellent reputation as a supplier of IT security solutions. The online sector has a growing need for technologies such as IDP / IPS. As DHPA, we encourage all developments and investments that contribute to the continuous improvement of the quality, safety and professionalism of our participants and the sector as a whole. "
