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 for the second consecutive year. This extensive audit was conducted by SAS 70 Solutions, Inc., one of the largest and first-ever national firms to specialize in SAS 70 audit services.
