(The Hosting News) – ScaleMatrix, a San Diego based front-runner in the evolving Cloud and Colocation market, announced today that it has recently been issued Service Organization Controls reports after successfully demonstrating adherence to both the SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2 and AT 101 SOC 2 reporting schemes, as published by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).
Now commonplace, the SSAE16 controls report is the replacement for the retired SAS 70 predecessor. The newly-updated SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2 extends the provisions of the SAS 70 report and adds a number of new IT focused attestation features. The AT 101 SOC 2 is a completely new concept, evaluating service organization controls in security, availability, confidentiality, processing integrity, and/or privacy. The report is definable by the subject to include as many of these trust areas as desired, from a single subject to all five areas.
ScaleMatrix’s recent AT101 reporting includes evaluations of controls for all five areas. ScaleMatrix can now share the successful results of these audited controls, including all five trust areas, with clients requiring support for Title 21 Part 11, 45 CFR parts 160-164, HIPAA, SOX, or like solutions.
In support of our international clients, the ScaleMatrix audit staff is fully able to engage international standards such as 95/46/EC and have significant experience with audits and reporting to the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) standards.
“Our ability to help our clients address, respond to, and manage controls structures has proven to be very valuable, helping them meet their reporting and audit response obligations as they pertain to specific verticals, such as financial services, legal services, and managed services to name a few”, said Daniel Zeiler, VP of Technology at ScaleMatrix.
