Let's Get It Done Right
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) April 13, 2009
GreenSoft Solutions, Inc. ("GSI") has successfully completed its annual SAS 70 Type II audit on the operations of its data centers and managed hosting services. This extensive examination was conducted by SAS 70 Solutions, Inc. of Tampa, FL, one of the largest and first national firms to specialize in SAS 70 audit services, and covered the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2009.
Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) for service organizations is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. GSI's SAS 70 Type II audit provides independent third party validation by a licensed CPA firm as to whether GSI's control activities were suitably designed to meet specified control objectives and were in place and operating effectively over the twelve month period. Specifically, the auditor examined control objectives in the areas of physical security, environmental security, client provisioning, network services and monitoring, and system backups. Following this rigorous review and testing, the auditor was able to issue an unqualified opinion regarding each of the areas described above.
"Our annual SAS 70 Audit reassures our clients that our operational processes and controls meet high standards for the security and reliability of the systems that we manage for them," said Ed Welsh, GSI's Director of Compliance and Security, "Clients of GSI may use our SAS 70 Type II report as a substitute for performing first hand testing in conjunction with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, or other compliance obligations. Our SAS 70 review creates a strong sense of trust and offers peace of mind to our clients, validating that 'we say what we do and do what we say' and it reflects our ongoing commitment to excellence in service delivery."
GSI has a long history of having its operations and services audited. In addition to this annual SAS 70 Type II Examination, GSI has completed various regulatory audits for specific clients, including compliance with HIPAA requirements for healthcare and employee benefits data privacy and protection, compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines for firms regulated by the FDA and compliance with all five components of internal control outlined in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. GSI was the first hosting provider validated for managed hosting services by VISA's CISP program (an annual validation process associated with that program), and is a leader in PCI-DSS compliant managed hosting services including participation on the PCI-DSS Security Council.
