Seattle, WA, United States, 2011/09/07 - FiberCloud, Inc. has received SAS 70 Type II audit results verifying the quality and security of their network design and operating effectiveness - FiberCloud.com.
The SAS 70 Type II audit began in 2010 and was conducted by Frost, PLCC Certified Public Accountants, an impartial accounting firm that specializes in Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and regulations. All five FiberCloud data centers located in Seattle, Everett and Bellingham successfully passed the audit.
FiberCloud received the Type II authorization, which involved over 6 months of compliance tests on FiberCloud’s security standards and operating effectiveness. FiberCloud has supported government security regulation compliance including SAS 70 since it’s inception since 2001, but this is the first time FiberCloud has applied for and received the SAS 70 Certification.
FiberCloud staff performs regular maintenance and maintains strict operating and security standards for all of their data centers to ensure compliance. FiberCloud did not make any major modifications to their data centers in order to pass the audit, but drew on already secure infrastructure and standard procedures to meet the audit requirements.
“This certificate will make it easy for our customers to ensure regulatory compliance and really validates the rock solid infrastructure and operating procedures that we have worked so hard to maintain.” Said Gerald Sherrill, Director of Operations and Infrastructure for FiberCloud, Inc.
