2013-10-23 15:42:12 - PEER 1 Hosting, the global web infrastructure and cloud hosting provider, today announced it has successfully completed the renewal of the SSAE 16, CSAE 3416 and ISAE 3402 certifications for the 12 months ending June 30, 2013.
Vancouver, British Columbia – October 23, 2013 – The renewal of these internationally recognized audits ensures that PEER 1 Hosting’s controls, processes and procedures adhere to accreditation requirements and industry best practices.
PEER 1 Hosting understands the ever-increasing compliance burdens facing customers operating online. These accreditations reflect controls that are in place during the aforementioned period of time, and help to shift some of their financial reporting burden from customers to PEER 1 Hosting, allowing customers to use the certification report to satisfy their own auditors.
PEER 1 Hosting went through the process of independent, in-depth audits of all its control activities, including how it manages the hosting and network technologies and services that it provides to customers. By renewing this certification
annually, the company ensures internal controls over financial reporting are kept to the highest standards.
“At PEER 1 Hosting, we are committed to delivering superior information system infrastructure so customers can focus on their core business and eliminate the need for their companies to be subjected to the costs associated with multiple audits,” said Ted Smith, senior vice president, PEER 1 Hosting.
“Renewing these certifications furthers our commitment to providing customers with peace of mind, transparency and confidence in our control systems, and ensures the continual safeguarding of their information.”
PEER 1 Hosting previously completed the SSAE 16 and CSAE 3416 audits in 2012 when they replaced the SAS70 and CICA 5970, respectively, as the new standards in reporting. Prior to the change, PEER 1 Hosting completed the SAS70 Type II and CICA 5970 audits in 2010.
