SecureData 365 Makes the Weatherhead 100… Again  

SecureData 365 is honored to announce that for an astounding fourth year in a row we’ve been recognized by Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management for our growth.

Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead 100 award was established thirty years ago to recognize excellence and entrepreneurship and has been seen as a prestigious award ever since for businesses across all industries.


We’re Upping Our SSAE 16 Game

Once again both locations of SecureData 365 have passed an SSAE 16 audit of its systems, processes, and facilities. This third party audit endorses SecureData 365 as safe and secure data centers, providing a high level of service, and controls.

Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) is considered the “gold standard” for data centers. Instituted by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in January 2010, SSAE 16 was drafted with the intention and purpose of updating the US service organization reporting standard so that it mirrors and complies with the new international service organization reporting standard.

SecureData 365 management developed control objectives for the significant areas of internal control that support our services. The control objectives addressed each of the following areas:

  • Logical Access and Security
  • Physical Access
  • Environmental Controls
  • Infrastructure Change Management
  • Data Backup
  • Problem Management

This year the SecureData 365 data center audits went from SOC 1 to SOC 2 which is a more detailed and in-depth audit. A SOC 2 report includes a detailed description of the service auditor’s test of controls and results.

SecureData 365 and Cleveland Cavaliers Celebrate New Cleveland Center’s Opening

Last night more than 150 Cleveland executives and IT professionals gathered for the grand opening of SecureData 365’s second data center in Ohio, located at ByteGrid’s Cleveland Technology Center.

Tracey Nichols, Director of Cleveland’s Department of Economic Development, delivered a proclamation from Mayor Frank Jackson recognizing how technology has been a significant factor in the city’s revitalization. SecureData 365’s data center will be an epicenter for innovation as more than 2,000 IT professionals will call the data center “home” for their IT infrastructure and cloud services.

The evening featured a keynote address from Len Komoroski, CEO of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena.  Komoroski stressed that Cleveland is becoming a destination for innovation and businesses as Cleveland undergoes an exciting transformation from manufacturing to an innovation and technology community.  With the RNC convention slated to come to Cleveland in 2016, Komoroski called these “remarkable times.” “It’s a different city and we are ready,” said Komoroski.

David Griffin, General Manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers, also addressed the audience on the eve of the NBA playoffs.  The Cavaliers themselves use SecureData 365 facilities in Canton and Griffin cited just how rewarding it is to see a team come together like the Cavs have – both on the court and in the front offices.

Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) is considered the “gold standard” for data centers. Instituted by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in January 2010, SSAE 16 was drafted with the intention and purpose of updating the US service organization reporting standard so that it mirrors and complies with the new international service organization reporting standard.

SecureData 365’s service auditor performed thorough testing of the control activities that have been implemented to help ensure that our control objectives are met.  The service auditor finalized our testing with the following conclusion:

“In our opinion, in all material respects, based on the criteria described in the Company’s assertion:

  1. The description fairly presents the system that was designed and implemented.
  2. The controls related to the control objectives stated in the description were suitably designed to provide reasonable assurance that the control objectives would be achieved if the controls operated effectively and user entities applied the complementary user entity controls contemplated in the design of the Company’s controls.
  3. The controls tested, which together with the complementary user entity controls referred to in the report, if operating effectively, were those necessary to provide reasonable assurance that the control objectives stated in the description were achieved.”

The SSAE16 SOC1 Type II audit report is designed to provide clients with a certain level of assurance regarding the controls that are maintained by SecureData 365’s management.   SecureData 365’s management understands the increasing importance of corporate governance, as well as the impact of the organization’s services on our clients’ systems.  The successful completion of the audit is only part of SecureData 365’s continued commitment to providing our client’s a high level of service and internal controls.
