Andover, MA – January 30, 2012 – NaviSite, Inc., a premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed application, managed messaging and managed cloud services, today announced it has completed its annual Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 Service Organization Control (SOC) 1 compliance for its cloud-enabled data centers in Andover, MA and San Jose, CA. SSAE 16 compliance also extends to managed services and managed cloud services in these two flagship data centers, as well as managed services in NaviSite’s Syracuse, NY and London, UK data centers. As an SSAE 16 SOC 1-compliant company, NaviSite has demonstrated its commitment to providing customers with the highest standards in processes, controls and procedures.
SSAE 16 SOC 1 is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). A SSAE 16 SOC 1 audit is widely recognized because it represents that a service organization has been through an in-depth audit of its control activities. NaviSite’s controls were created using Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices in information technology and security. The systems and processes evaluated in this audit include security monitoring, change management, problem management, backup controls, physical and environmental safeguards, and logical access.
SSAE 16 supersedes the SAS 70 audit standard, and is designated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an acceptable method for management to obtain assertions about service organization internal controls without conducting separate assessments. SSAE 16 is based on the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board's (IAASB) International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3402, Assurance Reports on Controls at a Service Organization.
"The SSAE 16 program is of great benefit to customers of our managed services, including our industry-leading cloud services. Customers can be sure we are committed to the highest standards for processes, controls and procedures ensuring safety in their cloud environment, and can rely on the SOC report as part of their own internal controls and compliance," said Allen Allison, Chief Security Officer at NaviSite.
