SAS 70 is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, which allows service organizations to disclose their control activities and processes to their customers and their auditors in a uniform reporting format. A SAS 70 Type II Audit establishes that an organization has gone through in-depth examination of its internal procedures, and helps the organization to demonstrate to its customers that they have adequate controls and safeguards to host and process their data. The SAS 70 Audit is conducted by an independent accounting and auditing firm, and, at the completion of the audit, a report is issued to the organization.

“We have always focused on improving our operations and service delivery to offer our customers a secure, reliable, and high-performance environment for hosting and managing their business-critical applications and infrastructure,” says Denis Martin, CTO and EVP at NaviSite. “With the completion of SAS 70 Type II Audit for another year, we continue to be a trusted technology partner, providing secure IT outsourcing solutions as well as helping our customers comply with Sarbanes Oxley regulations.”
