Internap NewsATLANTA – Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, today announced that it has successfully completed the transition from SAS 70 to a Service Organization Controls (SOC) Report, regarding the operations and control structure in its company-controlled data centers. Internap is one of the first known data center providers to receive a report under the new SOC2 Type II standard for controls at a service organization.

The change is in response to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) introduction of SOC Reports, replacing the previous SAS 70 standard and inclusive of new guidance specific to availability. By meeting the criteria set forth in the Trust Services Availability Principle, the SOC2, Type II Report confirms that Internap’s data center security and operational procedures have been reviewed and tested by an independent certified auditor and validates that controls and processes are suitably designed and operate effectively to protect and safeguard customers’ equipment and data.

“Internap has always provided its customers with superior security and reliability in world-class data center environments, which is especially critical for businesses dealing with industry compliance requirements,” said Mike Higgins, senior vice president of data center services at Internap. “In today’s global economy, service providers must demonstrate they have adequate controls and safeguards when they host information belonging to their customers. Completing the SOC2 audit demonstrates Internap’s commitment to meeting the service and performance level needs of our customers.”
