The embedded SIM card is believed to be industry transforming and essential for the development of the Internet of things ecosystem.

Invigo turned to Cirrus, an ITG company, for their datacenter colocation services in order to host their remote SIM provisioning solution while maintaining the highest data security standards, a key requirement in this area.


Invigo, the leading SIM and Device Management solution provider, is one of few global companies to offer eSIM Provisioning services for consumer and M2M devices.


Their state-of-the-art eSIM Manager solution is GSMA SAS-SM certified. The GSMA SAS-SM security Accreditation imposes strict security measures and requires hosting in a highly secure datacenter with the utmost level of security.


To meet the strict physical security requirements for the hosting site, Invigo turned to Cirrus, a managed colocation service provider for their Tier-4 datacenter, certified from Uptime Institute.


‘For the SAS-SM accreditation of its eSIM manager solution, we needed a high secured tier-4 hosting datacenter that offers a complete set of operational systems, processes, and controls, allowing it to comply with GSMA SAS-SM security requirements. Cirrus was the best partner for this; the great collaboration between Invigo and Cirrus professional teams made this certification a successful reality, and the first in the Middle-East and Africa!’ stated Mr. Fouad Goraieb, Invigo’s CEO.


By hosting their platform in a dedicated secure area in Cirrus’ colocation facility, Invigo now enjoys a highly secure space without worrying about managing physical security and setting ground measures, rules and restrictions.


The GSMA accreditation scheme provides a high security review of operations and a strict approach to physical security. The certification process was challenging and required extreme physical security measures for the hosting site. Invigo and Cirrus have successfully collaborated throughout the project, and Invigo’s eSIM Manager and the hosting site at Cirrus datacenter were the first solution and site to receive the GSMA SAS-SM accreditation scheme in the Middle East and Africa region!
