RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (RES), a provider of premier colocation and managed hosting services, announced that it has successfully completed the SAS 70 Type II audit with no exceptions. RagingWire has successfully passed the audit for five consecutive years.
"Our clients entrust us to deliver proven processes, practices, and controls to meet highest quality and compliance standards," said Yatish Mishra, President and CTO of RagingWire. "Successfully completing the Type II audit reflects our commitment to excellence and reaffirms our clients' confidence in us and the reliability, efficiency, and quality we deliver."
Widely accepted as the industry standard for IT service providers, the SAS 70 Type II audit independently assesses and reports how well a service provider effectively manages internal controls to meet the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. This includes Control Environment, Physical Security, Environmental Protection, Computer Operations, Information Security, and Data Communications. RES initiated the SAS 70 Type II audit to confirm for its clients that quality control and operational practices and hosting services meet the very latest federal requirements.
"The SAS 70 audit provides third-party assurance as to the controls placed in operation at a service organization," said Scott Price, president of auditing and accounting firm, SAS 70 Solutions. "Stakeholders may place more reliance on the controls at a service organization who has undergone a SAS 70 audit than a company that has not."
There are two types of SAS 70 audits. A Type II audit is more exhaustive and includes the organization's description of controls, as well as detailed testing of its controls over a minimum time period of six months. RES received this second, more complex certification again with no exceptions throughout.
