They can be confident that Cavern Technologies is operating in a transparent and professional manner consistent with the highest control guidelines and standards in the data center industry. “ Cavern’s President John Clune said in a statement. “Cavern’s data center clients may use our SSAE 16 Type II report as a substitute for performing first hand testing in conjunction with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, or other compliance obligations.”
