Achieving the SAS 70 Type II Certification is a testament to the care and attention we place in this area.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 12, 2008
Fortiva, a leading provider of on-demand email archiving, today announced that the company has achieved a Statement of Auditing Standards No. 70, Services Organizations ("SAS 70") Type II Certification. SAS 70 is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The widely-recognized SAS 70 validates that a service organization has been through an in-depth audit of its control activities, allowing them to demonstrate that they have adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data belonging to their customers.
"At Fortiva, maintaining the integrity, privacy and security of our client's data is our most important goal. To achieve this, we are constantly reviewing our processes and improving them to ensure we can provide the highest level of confidence to our customers," said Jeremy Hope, VP Operations, Fortiva. "Achieving the SAS 70 Type II Certification is a testament to the care and attention we place in this area."
Deloitte & Touche performed the independent audit of Fortiva's operational controls and processes leading to a SAS 70 Type II certification. Companies that are concerned with effectively meeting the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act typically expect this certification of their service providers. By successfully completing the audit, Fortiva has demonstrated that it has implemented stringent controls for its Software-as-a-Service email archiving solution.
