Markham, ON: Mid-Range is pleased to announce the successful completion of an independent auditor’s review of its policies, controls, procedures and monitoring related to its managed services, hosting, data centre environments and disaster recovery offerings. As a result of the audit, Mid-Range has earned both the SSAE 16 (formerly SAS70) designation and the CICA 5970 designation.
For businesses in today’s environment, there is a significant amount of company, personal and financial information that is created, stored and communicated electronically. This means that every business process at any size company requires more efficient and secure operating internal controls than ever, because the costs associated with the loss or misuse of data is so much higher today.
To save money and reduce IT headaches, many companies have outsourced some or all of their IT services to managed services companies such as Mid-Range. An integral part of the transition to an outsourced or hosted model is the verification that adequate controls and procedures are in place to safeguard companies’ data.
In an effort to provide this validation to their clients, service providers can undertake an independent auditor review in order to achieve the SSAE -16 (SAS 70)and CICA 5970 designations. SSAE 16 (SAS 70) and CICA 5970 are industry standards which recognize that Service Providers have adequate safeguards in place to host and protect customer data effectively.
“We have had strict procedures and controls in place for nearly two decades but this review gives us independently audited validation and testing of our control methods and procedures.” commented Dan Duffy, President of Mid-Range. “These designations are a testament to our ongoing commitment to the security of our customers’ business systems and data and we look forward to maintaining our industry standard designations for all of our data centre offerings as head into the future.”
Mid-Range will continue to provide the Canadian, U.S. & Caribbean markets with a wide range of superior products and services which will now include the SSAE 16 & CICA 5970 Certified data centre offering.
