TELEHOUSE America, a provider of data center and collocation facilities, international internet exchanges, and business continuity and disaster recovery solutions, recently announced its recent completion of a service auditor's review, also known as an SAS 70 audit, of its data center and collocation services.
The audit, performed by a nationally recognized independent auditing firm, was completed in January 2006. The audit's scope included TELEHOUSE's general controls and 24x7 customer assistance center. In order to complete the audit, TELEHOUSE management developed control objectives for the significant areas of internal control that support the data center and collocation services. The control objectives in the 2006 report addressed the areas pertaining to Control Environment, Physical Security, Environmental Protection, Computer Operations, Data Communications and Customer Assistance Center.
TELEHOUSE's service auditor performed extensive testing of the control activities that have been implemented by TELEHOUSE to help ensure that our control objectives are met. The service auditor's testing allowed the service auditor to express its opinions relating to several areas.
"The SAS 70 qualification has become a required evaluation benchmark sought by clients in their business continuity provider," said Atsushi Iizuka, Vice President - Director of Sales and Marketing at TELEHOUSE. "Our ability to offer this prerequisite is another example of our dedication to providing clients with high level facilities and support."
