Early in 2009 Prominic.NET completed the auditing process necessary to achieve SAS 70 Type II certification. The Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70, known commonly as SAS 70, defines the standards an independent auditor must use in order to assess the internal control objectives and processes of a service organization, such as a managed hosting provider.
About SAS 70 Certification
The internationally recognized Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No.70, Service Organizations, was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SAS 70 provides a uniform reporting format that allows service organizations to disclose their control activities and processes to their customers and their customers' auditors. In a SAS 70 examination, an independent accounting and auditing firm conducts an in-depth audit to ensure that a service provider offers adequate controls and safeguards for the critical task of hosting and/or processing data belonging to its customers. SAS 70 Certification addresses all five components of internal control outlined in Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002, and demonstrates that the service provider has established effectively designed control objectives and control activities.
The service auditor's report, which includes the service auditor's opinion, is issued to the service organization at the conclusion of a SAS 70 examination. For more information regarding SAS 70 auditing, please visit the SAS 70 website.
