"Our goal has been to demonstrate a continued commitment to proper controls and security."

Canadian Web Hosting, a Canadian IT Web hosting provider, today announced that it has successfully completed two independent audits to further demonstrate their commitment to their customers and ensuring that they are able to meet demanding corporate governance and data security requirements. The SSAE 16 Type II SOC 1 (Standards for Attestation Engagements 16 Type II) and CSAE 3416 Type II (Canadian Standard on Assurance Engagements 3416) audits were completed for the period of June 1, 2011 through May 31, 2012 and apply to Canadian Web Hosting’s service offerings including their CA Cloud services that include cloud servers, private clouds, self-managed clouds, dedicated servers, and shared cloud hosting. These audits examined Canadian Web Hosting’s adherence to industry best practices including their controls, processes and procedures.

Canadian Web Hosting had previously completed the SAS70 Type II and CICA 5970 audits in 2011 and updated their standing by engaging in these more rigorous and in-depth audits over the past several months. Companies who complete these annual audits are able to demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operationally visibility than those companies who do not. The completion of these rigorous audits typifies Canadian Web Hosting’s continued commitment to create and maintain the most stringent controls needed to ensure the highest quality and security of services provided to their customers. The Service Auditors' Report, with an unqualified opinion, demonstrates that Canadian Web Hosting’s control activities were effectively designed and in operation throughout the reporting period.

"We are very pleased with the results. By successfully passing a SSAE 16 Type II SOC 1 and CSAE 3416 Type II audits, as well as our SAS 70 audits in previous years, our goal has been to demonstrate a continued commitment to proper controls and security. All of our web hosting customers including those who are utilizing dedicated hosting and cloud hosting environments, including publicly traded companies and those in the financial and healthcare industries, will benefit from Canadian Web Hosting’s rigorous focus on processes and procedures and are able to use our audit report for their required corporate governance," states Matt McKinney, Director at Canadian Web Hosting.

The Service Auditors’ Report includes a detailed description of Canadian Web Hosting’s controls and an independent assessment of whether the controls are placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively.
