365 Main Successfully Completes SSAE Examination of its 16 Data Centers.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 21, 2013 – 365 Main Inc., a leading data center developer and operator, today announced that it has successfully completed its company-wide SSAE 16 examination. SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16) examinations recently become the new benchmark for reporting on controls at service organizations, replacing SAS (Statement on Auditing Standards) 70 audits in 2011.
“365 Main’s management understands the ever increasing importance of corporate governance, as well as the impact of the organization’s services on their clients’ system of internal controls,” said Greg Miller, principal, BrightLine CPAs. “The successful completion of the 2013 SSAE 16 examination is only part of 365 Main’s continued commitment to its customers to maintain a high level of internal control.”
BrightLine CPAs and Associates, a nationally recognized independent auditing firm, performed the examination. Its scope included examinations of 365 Main’s customer service, physical and environmental security, technical support, equipment, and administration as related to each of 365 Main’s 16 data centers and its San Francisco headquarters. The report may be used by 365 Main’s customers and their auditors to support their own compliance and certification efforts.
"365 Main has responded to the needs of our customers' growing operations and attracted new customers by expanding to support their businesses," said James McGrath, 365 Main COO. "The completion of the SSAE 16 examination shows that we have kept tight controls as we have increased our offerings, which gives our customers every assurance that they can rely on us and frees them to focus on their own core missions."
