Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 10, 2007
ProtectPoint Security, Inc., a leading managed security services provider (MSSP), today announced it has obtained a Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) Type II Service Auditors' Report from SAS 70 Solutions, Inc., one of the largest and first-ever national firms to specialize in SAS 70 audit services. The Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This internationally recognized auditing standard validates that a service organization has completed an in-depth audit of their control activities, which include controls over information technology processes. A Type II report not only includes a description of the controls, but also includes detailed testing of the controls over a minimum six month period.
"The completion of the SAS 70 Type II Audit reconfirms ProtectPoints' dedication to provide our partners and clients the highest level of service," states ProtectPoint CEO, Steve Harris. "This attestation validates that ProtectPoints' control objectives, control processes and procedures have passed rigorous, third-party testing to effectively provide comprehensive, 24/7/365 security monitoring, management and response for our valued clients."
In today's global economy, service providers must demonstrate that they meet the required controls and safeguards when processing and managing data relating to their customers. Many companies, especially financial services organizations that are highly regulated, require credible proof that a managed security services provider has processes and controls in place to provide a consistent, stable and secure environment to safely monitor and manage customer data.
"With completion of the SAS 70 Type II audit, ProtectPoint customers can be assured that our managed security services are consistent, safe and reliable," said ProtectPoint COO, Bert Buffington. "We are extremely proud to pass this stringent requirement and ensure our processes and procedures are sound and function in the best interests of our clients."
