This new AICPA standard, which became effective June 15, 2011, is the successor to the SAS 70 Type II standard, which Virtacore was previously audited against. The SSAE 16 defines all of the requirements applicable to data centers and other hosting providers. By holding both the SAS 70 Type II and SSAE 16 Type II, Virtacore reinforces its main corporate philosophies:
- Cloud computing should always be secure and reliable
- Customers should be able to have faith in their cloud services, allowing them to direct effort into revenue generating activities
Virtacore maintains its newest cloud operations within Equinix LEED certified data centers, which gives Virtacore customers additional confidence in the practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
