SILVER SPRING, MD - August 22, 2012 - Atlantech
a provider of telecommunications and data center services, today announced that its data centers
have achieved Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 Type II standards
compliance. Assessed by auditors from Linford & Co. of Denver, Colorado, the successful report
demonstrates Atlantech Online’s commitment to the highest standards of operational excellence
for its customers.
The audits, which were conducted at Atlantech’s Headquarters and Silver Spring and Rockville data
centers, determined that all of its sites meet or surpass SSAE16 standards for physical security
and environmental controls. The certification is of particular importance to Atlantech's financial
services customers, for which SSAE 16 compliance is often a requirement.
"To achieve a clean SSAE 16 Type II report is a tremendous accomplishment for Atlantech Online.
We understand that for our customers, knowing our facilities have the highest levels of security
and controls is critical, and this confirms it for them," said Ed Fineran, President of
SSAE No. 16 is a new reporting standard for services organizations put forth by the Auditing
Standards Board (ASB) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SSAE
16, which replaces Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS70), addresses engagements
undertaken by a service auditor for reporting on controls at service organizations (e.g., data
center providers) that provide services to user entities, for which a service organization's
controls are likely to be relevant to a user entity’s internal control over financial reporting.
