(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Webcom, Inc., a leader in simplified quote-to-order enablement for the selling of complex products and services, is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) Type II audit, which assesses the operational effectiveness of internal controls within service organizations. The certification signifies that Webcom, Inc. employs uniform and reliable operational controls to safeguard the data of its more than 100 customers and 50,000 users worldwide.
SAS 70 is a widely-recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, which sets standards for auditors to use in order to fairly and objectively assess the internal controls of service organizations. Webcom recently completed its SAS 70 Type II audit, which assessed the suitability of design and operational effectiveness of the company’s controls that had been placed in operation for the stated period. Webcom successfully demonstrated that its control objectives were well-designed and that the company has the right processes in place to meet those control objectives.
“Webcom takes great pride in leading the industry with our focus on operational effectiveness and security implementation for our customers,” said Chris Lesar, executive vice president at Webcom. “As a global SaaS (software as a service) provider, it’s essential for Webcom to have effective internal controls and standards in place to protect customer data. A recognized and comprehensive SAS audit gives our customers reassurance about the global processes and controls we have in place,” added Lesar.
“Being a public company with an expanding customer base, it’s very important that the companies we work with have safeguards in place to protect the security, privacy and sensitivity of our customer data,” said Andy Urda, General Manager at Fuji Electric. “We implemented WebSource CPQ to streamline our sales processes, and when considering our options, we found Webcom’s careful and strict operational controls to be one of their differentiators in the market. We congratulate them on achieving SAS 70 Type II Certification.”
