Audit Validates SecureData 365 as a Premier Data Center in Ohio
Today SecureData 365 announced it had passed an audit of its systems, processes, and facilities of its Canton data center facilities to achieve SSAE 16 status. In essence, this third party audit endorses SecureData 365 as a safe and secure data center, 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:
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:
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.
“It’s a tremendous proof point to achieve this status for an audit period that began on July 1, 2012, when we declared our compliancy with the new SSAE 16 standards” said Michael Campanelli, Vice President at SecureData 365. “We’re able to show an independent audit that validates our service levels as the most reliable, highest service data center in Ohio.”
