Company caps year by winning seventh consecutive award for annual average growth of more than 20 percent

Ann Arbor, Michigan – December 30, 2014 –Online Tech accomplished a long list of goals and reached significant milestones in 2014, making it the most ambitious and successful 12 months in its 20-year history. The company’s 2014 achievements included:

  • Opening its first data center outside of Michigan, bringing Online Tech’s secure, compliant, enterprise cloud, colocation, offsite backup and disaster recovery services to the fast-growing economy of Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Opening its first data center in metro Detroit, an under-served market that was previously lacking the critical infrastructure to help drive the city’s economic renaissance
  • Completing a major expansion of its mid-Michigan data center to meet growing demand in central Michigan
  • Launching its Encrypted Cloud and Backup Service to encrypt sensitive patient and customer information sitting in the cloud for companies that must comply with regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and PCI
  • Delivering an end-to-end encryption solution to healthcare companies, helping them overcome a challenging aspect of HIPAA and achieve compliance
  • Celebrating its 20th anniversary and remarkable evolution from Michigan’s first ISP for businesses in 1994 to its position today as the most respected provider of secure and compliant hosting services
  • And receiving a number of industry honors, including its seventh consecutive FastTrack award from Ann Arbor SPARK, the mid-Michigan economic development organization that recognizes the region’s fastest growing corporations

“2014 was a transformational year in terms of geographical growth, new data centers, an expansion of an existing facility, customer growth, industry honors and product launches,” said Yan Ness, co-CEO of Online Tech. “Every strategic step we have taken has allowed us to immediately deliver more value to our clients, while positioning the company for continued rapid growth.

“Our team has worked hard to build a reputation as the first name in secure and compliant hosting services. This focus sets Online Tech apart from everyone else, as does our work to build win-win relationships with our clients. I want to thank all of our customers, employees, partners and vendors who have helped to make this possible,” said Ness.

“This was a great year for our company, but I believe 2015 will be even better,” said Mike Klein, co-CEO of Online Tech. “The need for highly secure, fully compliant hosting services is growing by leaps and bounds. This is particularly true in heavily regulated industries including healthcare, financial services, retail, e-commerce and Software as a Service (SaaS).

“Though everyone will say they comply with HIPAA, SOC-2, PCI and other regulations, we have a culture of compliance. Security and compliance are not check boxes for us. Our daily focus is protecting our clients. Organizations more than ever need a partner they can trust, one that will always be there for them and will pick up the phone. No other company is better positioned to meet the increasing demands of security and compliance than Online Tech,” said Klein.
