Southfield, MI (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
Nexcess, a provider of optimized WordPress, Magento, and ExpressionEngine hosting, has successfully completed its third Type 2 SSAE 16 examination for the review period of February 1, 2013, to January 31, 2014 within the scope of Data Center and Web Hosting services. As with the company’s previous Type 2 SSAE 16 examinations, the most recent examination was carried out by Brightline CPAs & Associates, Inc., who confirmed that the hosting provider’s controls, processes, and procedures conform to industry best practices. As a provider of eCommerce hosting and enterprise hosting, external verification of the company’s SSAE 16 compliant hosting is of particular importance for Nexcess clients.
The Type 2 SOC 1 (Service Organization Controls Report) examination is an essential indication of the quality of control that Nexcess implements over aspects of its business operations that may impact the financial well-being of partners and clients, including the handling of financial and other private data. Scrutiny and verification of controls by a qualified third party demonstrates Nexcess’s ongoing commitment to excellence in providing the highest standards of operational control and reliability.
“We’re completely confident of the controls and procedures we have in place to protect the interests of our hosting clients and are more than happy to open those controls to scrutiny and examination,” commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess, “The trust of our hosting client is of paramount importance to us. The Type 2 SSAE 16 examination allows clients to have complete confidence that Nexcess’s infrastructure and the data it carries are tightly controlled in accordance with the highest industry standards.”
The Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 replaces the older SAS 70 standard, and is intended to bring the United States into alignment with the international ISAE 3402 standard. SSAE 16 can also be referred to as “SOC 1”. For more information on this and related standards, visit http://ssae16.com/.
