Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) April 09, 2012
Edgewebhosting Inc., a leading provider of mission-critical managed hosting services today announced that it has successfully completed a SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II audit of its managed hosting services with zero exceptions. The audit tested the accuracy of the security, availability, integrity, confidentiality and privacy controls for Edgewebhosting’s service offerings.
The SOC 2 Type II audit was performed by the independent certified public accounting firm Clifton, Lawson, Allen LLP, covering Edge’s Cloud hosting, dedicated hosting and collocated hosting solutions. Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SSAE 16 SOC 2 replaced the SAS 70 in 2011 as the officially recognized auditing standard for service organizations to demonstrate they have adequate controls and processes in place. A SOC 2 Type II examination demonstrates that an independent accounting and auditing firm has reviewed and examined an organization's control objectives and activities, and tested those controls to ensure that they are operating effectively. At the conclusion of the examination, a formal report including the auditor's opinion is issued to the examined organization.
“Achieving the SSAE 16 standard symbolizes our commitment to operational excellence”, said Michael Altman, Edgewebhosting’s chief operating officer. “The stringent SOC 2 Type II audit provides our customers independent validation of the effectiveness of our operations”
