Singapore, 19 September 2018 – Data centre service provider 1-Net announced that it has completed the Outsourced Service Provider Audit Report (OSPAR) today, becoming one of the first few organisations in Singapore to be OSPAR-accredited two years in a row. 1-Net will also be added as an Outsource Service Provider (OSP) on the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS)’s OSP registry, once again proving its credit worthiness as a reliable data centre service provider.
