CyberTrails, a Leading Provider of Managed and Hosting Services, Completes SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type 2 Audit
PHOENIX, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CyberTrails (www.cybertrails.com), a provider of managed information technology services, has successfully completed the move to SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type 2 according to the standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
"By leveraging the controls we have in place, we continue to add additional value to our client base by assisting them in meeting their own regulatory and compliance requirements"
Why is SSAE 16 so important?
The report underscores CyberTrails' adherence to rigorous, industry-accepted auditing standards for service companies. CyberTrails has completed audits according to the SAS70 standards for 4 years. We now have moved further by completing our audit according to AT Section 101, Attest Engagements, of the attestation standards using the Trust Services Criteria (SOC 2 reports).
"In today's business world with increasing compliancy requirements, it is critical that our customers trust we have the necessary controls in place and are working to the highest standards to ensure their information is safe and secure in our environment," explains John Allen, General Manager of CyberTrails.
Changes in the regulatory environment in recent years, including those brought about by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and HIPPA; require companies to implement controls that ensure the reliability of their data. SOC examinations can help confirm that access to information is internally regulated and limited by physical controls and safeguards.
"By leveraging the controls we have in place, we continue to add additional value to our client base by assisting them in meeting their own regulatory and compliance requirements," says Allen.
The certification process includes design assessments and operating effectiveness tests of CyberTrails' policies and procedures, system availability, environmental controls, physical security, logical security, problem/incident management and infrastructure change management.
