Accreditations and Awards

From internationally recognised certifications to industry awards, here are some of the things we are proud of achieving!


We strongly believe in operating as a transparent, ethical and security-focused company. We also feel it is important to have these values externally validated through a number independent assessments and certifications.

ISO 27001

ISO 27001 is an international standard that is recognised globally for managing risks to the security of information. ISO 27001:2013 is the latest version.

This standard specifies the requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). The organisation must take a systematic approach to establish an ISMS appropriate for their industry, then implement, maintain and continually improve it. When information security risks are identified, the organisation must assess those risks and take appropriate action. The organisation must have regular internal and external audits to ensure their continued compliance to the standard, and to demonstrate continual improvement.

Our wholly owned York data centre and both of our offices (York & Manchester) are certified against the ISO 27001:2013 standard. Our Manchester data centre is covered by certification from the organisation we rent the space from.

Fair Tax Mark

We’re the only hosting company in the UK to have been awarded the Fair Tax Mark in recognition of our corporate transparency and commitment to a fair tax policy.


We’re really pleased that the hard work of everyone at Bytemark has been recognised through some of the following awards:

DatacenterDynamics Awards EMEA 2013

Our new data centre in York was recognised for its innovative and power-efficient cooling at the DatacenterDynamics Awards, where we were shortlisted for Innovation in Medium Datacenter.

Northern Tech Awards 2014

We were named one of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies in the North at Northern Tech Awards 2014.


We are proud to support the open internet through helping a number of open Source and Free software projects with their hosting needs.
