Web Host News – The Bunker delivers ultra secure Managed Hosting, Cloud Computing, Colocation, and Outsourced IT from within Europe’s most secure data centres, and is pleased to announce a partnership to offer CNS’s COMPLIANCEngine and payment card industry (PCI QSA) compliance services alongside The Bunker’s ultra-secure data centres.

The partnership will enable both companies to offer a range of complimentary services ranging from consultancy and network-auditing processes, accreditation to QSA, CESG, CHECK and CLAS standards, through to colocation, managed hosting and cloud computing in ultra secure, ex-military nuclear bunker data centres.

Simon Neal, Director of Data Centre Services at The Bunker commented, “The Bunker needed independent and certified personnel to assist us with delivering PCI DSS and GSx CoCo (IL3) certified solutions. We were particularly impressed with CNS’s COMPLIANCEngine, a comprehensive suite of software and services, which has already significantly reduced the time to certification for several of our clients. The company’s levels of innovation and in-depth understanding of security standards, as well as its approach to delivering certified solutions, has been exceptional”.

Kevin Dowd, Director of Security Assessment & Founder of CNS, commented, “We’re delighted to be able to offer our PCI accreditation services to The Bunker clients, as well as our COMPLIANCEngine”. He continued, “We developed the concept for this service after years of auditing to a full range of regulation and governance requirements. We realised that we needed a tool which could audit a network once and provide the information for many controls. So we built one”.

CNS’s COMPLIANCEngine managed service (, was built in response to the increasing levels of IT compliance regulation across all industries. It works for any industry or in-house standard by automating compliance-specific functions such as build validation, log management (SIEM), vulnerability assessment, configuration and patch management. It can also be customised according to a client’s applications, systems, IT estate and risk management methodology.
