SSAE 16 Replaces FiberMedia’s SAS 70 Certification as the Authoritative Guidance for Reporting on Service Organizations
Secaucus, NJ – August 22, 2012 – FiberMedia Group, LLC, a leading data center services provider with facilities throughout the New York metropolitan area and Cleveland, OH, announces today that it has received the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16 certification. The SSAE 16 certification demonstrates FiberMedia’s ability to exceed security, compliance and safety-related requirements for controls and safeguards when hosting customer data.
Critical components to obtaining this certification include the ability to assess and reduce risk, propel business continuity and provide customers with controlled security measures. The assessment process involves the completion of SOC 1, SOC 2 and SOC 3 reports, compiled by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). These standardized reports review multiple aspects of the organization, including FiberMedia‘s internal control over financial reporting (ICFR), security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy in accordance with AICPA’s Trust Service Principles and AT Section 101. SSAE 16 supersedes FiberMedia’s previous SAS 70 certification, effectively replacing it as the authoritative guidance for reporting on service organizations.
“Exceeding SSAE 16 requirements across all of our datacenters as well as SOC requirements across our cloud and managed services platform, further demonstrates our commitment to consistently deliver best-of-breed, intelligent datacenter solutions to all our customers,” comments Michael Bucheit, CEO of FiberMedia Group.
