Datapipe North American Facilities Successfully Complete SSAE 16 Audits
JERSEY CITY, N.J., Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — As part of an ongoing commitment to compliance and security, Datapipe, a leading provider of managed services and data center infrastructure, announced today that its San Jose, Calif. and Somerset One and Somerset Two, N.J. facilities have completed SSAE 16 audits. The Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 was finalized by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in January 2010 and became effective on June 15, 2011.
SSAE 16 effectively replaces SAS 70 as the authoritative guidance for reporting on service organizations. SSAE 16 was drafted with the intention and purpose of upgrading the U.S. service organization reporting standard so that it mirrors and complies with the new international service organization reporting standard – ISAE 3402.
“Our clients trust us to manage their mission-critical information and ensure a compliance record that consistently reaffirms the continual security and integrity of their organization,” said Joel Friedman, Chief Security Officer for Datapipe. “Successfully completing the SSAE16 audit in all of our U.S. facilities enables our clients to meet new standards of control governing financial reporting.”
