RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc. Northern California's premier data center and managed services provider today announced it has completed their annual SAS 70 Type II audit with no exceptions. This most recent audit marks the fifth consecutive year RagingWire has distinguished itself through the successful completion of the data center's SAS 70 Type II audit. The audit was performed by a nationally recognized independent auditing firm.

"Successfully completing the audit provides our clients with a high level of confidence in the reliability and quality of the IT colocation solutions we deliver," said Robert Quinn, RagingWire's Vice President of Information Technology. "The Type II audit provides third-party assurance on the overall effectiveness of the data center's processes and controls that are in place supporting our Enterprise Data CenterSM operation."

"The standard review period for a SAS 70 Type II audit is six months," said Chris Schellman, President of Auditing and Accounting, SAS 70 Solutions. "RagingWire's decision to expand the review period to a full 12 full months, versus the minimum 6 months, further demonstrates their desire to exceed customer needs and expectations."

There are two types of SAS 70 audits. A Type II audit is more exhaustive and includes in-depth descriptions and detailed testing of its controls and practices over a given period of time. Widely accepted as the industry standard for colocation and IT service providers, the SAS 70 Type II audit independently assesses and reports on how well a service provider effectively manages internal controls to meet the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. These data center controls include; environmental controls, physical security, environmental protection, computer operations, information security, and data communications. RagingWire undergoes the annual SAS 70 Type II audit to confirm for its clients and prospects that quality controls, operational practices, and hosting services meet the very latest regulatory requirements for secure data center operations.
