OneNeck IT Solutions, an end-to-end IT solutions and cloud hosting provider, has successfully completed the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16, SOC 1 Type 2 audits.
Conducted by a leading accounting firm, SSAE 16 focuses on procedures, including physical and environmental security, problem management, technical support, customer ordering/service delivery, network equipment monitoring and organization and administration. The Service Organization Control (SOC 1) focuses on internal controls at an organization relevant to financial reporting.
Successful completion of the SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2 applies to the entire organization of the IT solutions and cloud hosting provider.
Meeting compliance needs
OneNeck’s controls for the audit were created using Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices in information assurance and security. The systems and processes evaluated in this audit included: organizational and management control environment, computer operations, physical security, information security, incident management, change management, internal systems management, and application development.
“Our customers find the SSAE 16 beneficial to meeting their own compliance needs,” said Clint Harder, CTO and senior vice president of Product Strategy at OneNeck. “Instead of duplicating the same auditing steps, our customers can focus on growing their business knowing that the processes and procedures behind the services they receive from OneNeck have been audited and tested by an independent third party.”
The IT solutions and cloud hosting provider owns and operates four Tier 3 data centers in Iowa, Minnesota, andWisconsin and manages two Tier 2 data centers in Arizona.
