Miami Florida Dec 03, 2009 12:09 ET ColoHouse, a Premier Miami Colocation Data Center, Completes SAS 70 Certification MIAMI, FL–(Marketwire – December 3, 2009) – ColoHouse, a premier Florida Data Center and Miami Florida Colocation facility, and a leading provider of carrier neutral data center services, is pleased to announce completion of Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS70). SAS 70 is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) designed to assess the internal controls of a service organization in order to verify compliance with defined business processes.
Through the certification process, ColoHouse’s Miami Data Center control objectives were closely audited in the areas of organization structure, administration, environmental controls, operational controls, as well as physical and logical security controls.
“Obtaining our SAS 70 certification allows ColoHouse customers to rest easy knowing that we are following through on our commitment to provide the very best in Miami Data Center and Miami Colocation services, with a 3rd party validation to ensure our customers ultra secure access with a 100% uptime guarantee,” said Alan P. Sabourin, Chief Operating Officer of ColoHouse.
ColoHouse’s SAS 70 audit, which was conducted by an independent service auditor, focused on five key areas including control environment, risk assessment, monitoring, control activities and information and communication systems. The resulting Independent Service Auditor’s Report concluded that ColoHouse had instituted the effective operational controls within these areas. “The SAS 70 audit provides third-party assurance as to the controls placed in operation at a service organization,” added Alan P. Sabourin, COO of ColoHouse. “The controls under review are those outsourced to a third party and impact their client’s internal control environment. Companies may place more reliance on the controls at a service organization who has undergone a SAS 70 audit than a company that has not. By utilizing a firm specializing in performing SAS 70 audits, the ColoHouse Miami Data Center controls are measured against best practice standards to provide feedback for continuous improvement of its services and controls.”
