SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
OneNeck® IT Solutions, an end-to-end IT solutions and cloud hosting provider, announced today they have successfully completed the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16, SOC 1 Type 2 audits.
Conducted by a leading accounting firm, SSAE 16 focuses on procedures, including physical and environmental security, problem management, technical support, customer ordering/service delivery, network equipment monitoring and organization and administration. The Service Organization Control (SOC 1) focuses on internal controls at an organization relevant to financial reporting. The Type 2 report focuses on the fairness of the presentation of management’s description of the service organization’s system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of the controls to achieve the related control objectives included in the description throughout a specified period.
OneNeck's controls for the audit were created using Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices in information assurance and security. The systems and processes evaluated in this audit included: organizational and management control environment, computer operations, physical security, information security, incident management, change management, internal systems management, and application development.
“Our customers find the SSAE 16 beneficial to meeting their own compliance needs,” said Clint Harder, CTO and senior vice president of Product Strategy at OneNeck. “Instead of duplicating the same auditing steps, our customers can focus on growing their business knowing that the processes and procedures behind the services they receive from OneNeck have been audited and tested by an independent third party. It’s just part of our commitment to providing the best security and service available in the industry.”
Successful completion of the SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2 applies to the entire OneNeck IT Solutions enterprise. For more information, visit oneneck.com.
