Charlotte Facility’s Security Infrastructure Passes Highest Level SAS-70 Audit
Today, Inflow Inc., the quality leader in IT outsourcing services, announced its new managed services division at Inflow-Charlotte (formerly i-bridge) has successfully achieved SAS 70 Type II certification. The SAS 70 audit was conducted by a nationally recognized CPA firm.
The Statement of Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) certification is an internationally recognized standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. This certification means that Inflow-Charlotte has implemented controls and processes to minimize the potential for loss of internal or non-customer related systems and customer related systems (monitoring applications, devices and tools) due to intentional or unintentional events.
Inflow-Charlotte pursued SAS 70 Type II certification, the highest level SAS 70 validation, in response to customer demand. Having SAS 70 certification is a key requirement for customers to meet certain mandatory regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley. These regulations require credible proof that a managed security services provider has processes and controls in place to provide a stable and secure environment to safely monitor and manage customer data.
Inflow-Charlotte completed the SAS 70 audit and received its certification in just over nine weeks.
"This is a distinction that we are very proud of, as we’ve worked diligently to prepare for and undergo the auditing process," said Greg Hoogerland, Inflow’s director of managed services delivery. "We are proud to say that we are now fully capable of helping our customers meet their regulatory pressures and they can have the confidence that the services they receive are highly secure and disciplined solutions."
"Inflow is extremely process-oriented as a company as validated already by our ISO 9001:2000 certification, which only 1% of U.S. businesses possess," said Art Zeile, CEO for Inflow Inc. "Inflow-Charlotte’s SAS 70 certification represents our continuing dedication to providing the highest quality service to our customers."
Inflow’s managed services division at Inflow-Charlotte targets mid- to large-market companies that need critical business application management as well as high availability infrastructure and process specialization. Inflow provides hosting, management and monitoring solutions through this division at a predictable cost.
