Data center colocation provider RagingWire has announced that its Sacramento, California and Ashburn, Virginia data center campuses has successfully completed the latest Statement on Standards and Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) Type 2 examination with zero exceptions.
Brightline CPAs and Associates, a nationally recognized independent accounting and auditing firm, conducted the examination.
SSAE 16 audits comprising Type 1 audit and Type 2 audit involves in-depth testing of controls and practices over a minimum six-month period. RagingWire selected an independent CPA to examine and report on its security and operational controls, and this process is helping the RagingWire officials to answer to the needs of its customers by providing an objective evaluation.
"Maintaining our strong operational controls and security policies across the organization is critical to our success," said Jason Weckworth, RagingWire’s vice president of data center operations. "Completing the SSAE 16 Type 2 examination with zero exceptions for all of our data center facilities on both coasts gives our customers confidence in their data center infrastructure, operations and controls."
Officials at RagingWire said they completed the final report, known as the Type 2 Service Organization Controls, or SOC 1, for the period from September 1, 2011 to August 31, 2012 for the Sacramento campus, and from July 1, 2012 to August 31, 2012 for the Ashburn campus.
"An SSAE 16 examination is a critical assurance report for customers who host financial applications and other systems which impact that customer's internal controls over financial reporting," said Douglas Barbin, principal at Brightline CPAs and Associates, Inc. "RagingWire's continued commitment to conducting this annual assessment, along with its other initiatives, reflects a dedication to assisting its customers in meeting their compliance requirements."
RagingWire designs, builds and operates mission-critical data centers that reportedly deliver high-density power and 100 percent availability.
