(PRWEB) July 21, 2011
Distributed Applications Technologies (DAT), a wholly owned subsidiary of CornerStone, an advanced communications solutions provider, today announced the completion of Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) certification.
Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 70, Service Organizations, is a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It represents that a service organization has been through an in-depth audit of their control objectives and control activities, which often include controls over information technology and related processes.
“Receiving SAS 70 certification emphasizes our commitment to providing our customers with the highest level of data security”, said David Wilming, President of Software Services. “Our customers rely on our expertise and guidance to protect their information, and this certification demonstrates our ability to deliver world-class solutions to our customers.”
The SAS 70 certification looks at many aspects of the hosting services that DAT provides, including the timely backups of critical files, off-site backup storage, regular off-site rotation of backup files, and assuring that client backup data is protected from unauthorized or unintentional use, modification, addition or deletion.

About SAS 70 Certification
SAS No. 70 is the authoritative guidance that allows service organizations to disclose their control activities and processes to their customers and their customers' auditors in a uniform reporting format. The issuance of a service auditor's report prepared in accordance with SAS No. 70 signifies that a service organization has had its control objectives and control activities examined by an independent accounting and auditing firm. The service auditor's report, which includes the service auditor's opinion, is issued to the service organization at the conclusion of a SAS 70 examination.
