Anschutz-owned Cloud Computing company has successfully passed a SSAE-16 SOC 1 Type II examination for its Data Centers
DES MOINES, IA – January 14, 2014 – LightEdge Solutions is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its annual data center process examination for the review period spanning December 1, 2012 to November 30, 2013. The SSAE-16 SOC 1 Type II independent examination and the subsequent reporting document was completed by BrightLine CPAs & Associates, Inc. and verifies that LightEdge Solutions’ data centers are being managed in accordance with the service provider controls and processes.
SSAE No. 16, also known as the Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization, regards internal controls on the services provided by an organization offering valuable information customers need in order to assess and address any risks associated with the outsourced services they’re receiving. The SAS-70 audit standard was surpassed by the SSAE No. 16 in mid-2011. These improvements ensure that US companies are able to compete on an international level by matching reporting regulations worldwide. Completing the SSAE No. 16 helps to ensure that customers can trust the honesty and integrity of their service provider.
“I am pleased that year after year we have been able to perform an audit against our controls and systems that showed no exceptions,” said Travis Thompson, chief security officer for LightEdge Solutions. “As we expand our data center presence, the SSAE-16 examination is an excellent way to demonstrate to our current and future customers that they can feel secure that our processes have been validated by a trusted third party.”
These exams are conducted by an independent, licensed CPA firm to ensure the highest levels of quality and accuracy for our clients. LightEdge has completed control and process examinations since 2008, and we will continue to make it a priority due to the amount of high-sensitivity data many of our customers in the banking, healthcare and legal services industries handle on a daily basis, just to name a few.
