Nirvanix Sets Standard For Security, Reliability In The Cloud With SAS 70 Type II Certification

SAN DIEGO, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Nirvanix, the premier enterprise cloud storage service provider, today announced that it has successfully completed the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) Type II audit that verifies that its control processes have been formally evaluated and tested by an independent accounting and auditing firm. In addition, Nirvanix security and control processes have been audited and approved by multiple Fortune 50 organizations, reinforcing Nirvanix's position as the premier enterprise cloud storage service.

SAS 70 is an auditing standard for service organizations developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and is a widely recognized assessment of a company's strengths of internal controls based upon identified objectives. Type II certification includes both a description of these objectives as well as tests validating the effectiveness of the organization's controls. Nirvanix was found to continually maintain its information security policy as well as monitor and test its network.

"Enterprises looking to make a move to the cloud have a great resource in SAS 70 Type II certification that confirms a solution provider's ability to fulfill its business requirements as promised, consistently and reliably," said Jim Zierick, President and CEO of Nirvanix. "Third-party validation of security and control processes of cloud storage providers helps ensure that information remains safe and secure. SAS 70 Type II certification is a standard that all enterprises should look for in any cloud storage provider."
