(Ping! Zine) – iWeb Group Inc. proudly announces that its iWeb-CO co-location hosting services data center located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, has successfully been granted Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) Type II Certification.

The SAS 70 standard is a widely recognized auditing standard that confirms, after an audit from a independent, external firm, that the company has control procedures and that they are adequately implemented.

iWeb’s review was conducted by Deloitte & Touche LLP and included extensive testing performed over a six-month period. The review and report notably included a full assessment of:

◦Infrastructure and physical security measures
◦Human resources policies and procedures
◦Insurance coverage

In obtaining this certification, iWeb had two main objectives, confirming the existence of the numerous procedures that were put into action over the last couple of years and demonstrating to its actual and potential customers the rigor of its operations. These two goals were successfully achieved » said Martin Leclair, iWeb’s President of Products and Technology.

The review highlighted the measures implemented to control physical access to our facilities, with surveillance cameras, access cards and biometric checkpoints.  The audit also confirmed the quality of the maintenance procedures of our electromechanical and fire control equipment.  We were confident that we were doing it right and now it is official » declared Cyrille Mertes, iWeb’s Chief Technology Officer.

Michel Thivierge, iWeb’s Human Resources Director, who also played a critical role in obtaining this certification, added: «the SAS70 Type II certification confirms to our customers that the policies and procedures set forth by iWeb to ensure the competence of its employees are effectively implemented, and that our employees will use their talents in the interest of customers. We always knew that this was so, but it is now confirmed by our auditors and we are really proud of it!
