Canadian Web Hosting, a provider of web hosting, cloud hosting, and data center infrastructure, has once again successfully completed its annual independent audit for Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II, in accordance to AT 101, making this its eighth consecutive year of completion.
The SOC 2 Type II audit was conducted for the period between February 1, 2017, and January 31, 2018 and examined all of Canadian Web Hosting’s services, including dedicated server hosting, cloud hosting, Canadian colocation, and web hosting services.
The audit process scanned Canadian Web Hosting’s compliance to industry best practices, covering controls, processes, and procedures. Upon completion, it was determined that its control activities were compliant and the company displayed the ability to effectively operate throughout the reporting period.
Canadian Web Hosting, again, is AT 101 SOC 2 Type II compliant to meet data and security requirements for its customers. The SOC 2 Type II report is available upon request and can be obtained by customers, or other interested individuals.
AT 101 Compiance
Canadian Web Hosting states that it is one of its core missions to help businesses meet their certification requirements in accordance with AT 101 (formerly SAS70 and CSAE 3416 Type II) – which meets the new international service organization standards for Type I and Type II reporting. This would ensure web hosting customers with services including dedicated servers, VPS, cloud servers, cloud computing, cloud storage, and/or shared web hosting that they are in a secured environment equipped with the proper controls for Internet operations and highly available IT services.
“Canadian Web Hosting has always understood the need to provide customers with a reliable, safe and secure hosting environment,” said Kings Wong, VP of Operations at Canadian Web Hosting and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM). “By going through our annual AT101 SOC 2 Type II audit, we assure our customers that we are committed to this. Our clients can feel assured that they are receiving the technology, support and verifiable processes that exceed industry standards for compliance.”
