(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Atlantic.Net, a privately held leading hosting solutions provider, announced today that it has achieved SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Type II certification for its data center. This certification, an internationally recognized standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the recognized mark of IT service quality, effectively replaces SAS 70 Type II, Atlantic.Net’s previous certification.
“The renewal of this independent third-party certification reflects our continued commitment to operate at the highest standards and demonstrate to our clients that the security of their information and equipment is paramount to us,” said Brett Haines, Director of Operations for Atlantic.Net. “The controls used during the SSAE 16 re-certification process allow us to provide peace of mind to our clients so they can concentrate on growing their business.”
Independent accounting firm, Reckenen, Inc., performed an attestation of Atlantic.Net’s colocation data center facilities that included controlled environment, physical security, logical security, and computer operations. Atlantic.Net was awarded Type II certification, which is more comprehensive than Type I, to reflect the auditor’s judgment on how efficiently controls functioned during the defined one-year examination period.
