October 23, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Atlantic.Net
is pleased to announce the completion of Statement of Auditing Standard Number 70 (SAS 70) certification for Service Organizations. SAS 70 certification confirms the reliability, security, availability, and processing integrity of Managed Server Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, and Server Colocation provided by Atlantic.Net through its World Class Data Center operations.
The SAS 70 certification was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to audit and report on the effectiveness of operations and controls of a service provider. Atlantic.Net’s Data Center control objectives were closely examined in the areas of organizational structure, administration, physical and environmental controls, and physical and logical security. Atlantic.Net invested significant time and resources into the SAS 70 certification process to ensure the security, controls, and processes in its Data Center operations are closely followed and monitored. The audit also enhances Atlantic.Net’s ability to support companies facing Sarbanes Oxely requirements when they outsource their data center needs through Server Colocation, Dedicated Hosting, or Managed Server Hosting.
“SAS 70 certification allows our clients to rest easy knowing that Atlantic.Net’s operational processes, system controls, and infrastructure meet stringent requirements to ensure the reliability, security, and service customers have come to expect from Atlantic.Net,” said Josh Simon, Director of Data Center Services at Atlantic.Net. “This certification provides clients of Atlantic.Net the ability to utilize our SAS 70 report as an alternative to conducting their own testing for Data Center compliance requirements.”
SAS 70 certification further reinforces Atlantic.Net’s enterprise level offerings with its World Class Data Center operations and 100% uptime service level guarantee.
