VANCOUVER, BC – Canadian Web Hosting, a leading provider of cloud hosting and data center infrastructure in Canada, has announced that it has once again successfully completed its annual independent audit for Service Organization Control (SOC) 2, in accordance to AT 101, making this its seventh consecutive year of completion.

The SOC 2 audit was conducted between February 2016 and January 2017, 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.

In addition to the annual SOC 2 audit, Canadian Web Hosting also completed the SOC 3 audit, which adheres to the Trust Service Principles and focuses on the design of e-commerce systems. The SOC 3 report is available for download, while the SOC 2 report can be obtained by customers, members of the media, or other interested individuals upon request.

One of Canadian Web Hosting’s core missions is 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 organizations standards for Type I and Type II reporting. As a result, its web hosting customers with services including dedicated servers, VPS, cloud servers, cloud computing, cloud storage and/or shared hosting can feel confident that they are in a secure, reliable and effective environment equipped with the proper controls for internet operations and highly available IT services.
