DSS, a provider of innovative IT solutions that drive business value, announced today that the DSS Data Center has completed a stringent SSAE16 audit resulting in a SOC 2 report. This evaluation includes a strong set of controls and requirements specifically designed around data center service organizations.

Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE ) No. 16, known as SSAE 16, has been put forth by the Auditing Standards Board (ASB) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Its purpose was to replace an aging SAS 70 standard that needed to be refreshed, but more importantly, one that would keep pace with the growing push towards more globally accepted international accounting standards.

“SSAE16 is a much more comprehensive and rigorous standard,” said Scott Kantner, DSS Chief Technology Officer. “And by meeting it, we’re able to provide our customers an even greater measure of confidence that their critical IT infrastructure and business information is being adequately protected in our facilities.”

Successful completion of the SSAE 16 Audit indicates that DSS Data Center processes, procedures and controls have been formally evaluated and tested by the independent accounting and auditing firm Parente Beard LLC. The examination included the company’s controls related to security monitoring, change management, service delivery, support services, backup and environmental controls, logical and physical access.
