Direct connectivity to Amazon, Google, and Microsoft Azure is available from this location, and NetActuate's Johannesburg data centre is certified compliant for PCI DSS, ISO 2700, ISO 9001.

The company said its customers can leverage its cross-border expertise in shipping and customs for redundant, secure colocation of equipment.

NetActuate's experienced 24×7 NOC and local technicians are available to provide remote hands and expert support.
