As it continues to demonstrate its commitment to enable customers to meet their own compliance obligations, ViaWest today announced expansions to its library of compliance and attestation reports.
ViaWest has a long history of providing Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16)(formerly SAS 70), reports. The company has expanded its reporting portfolio to include a Service Organization Controls (SOC) SOC 2, Type II report on the Security and Availability Trust Services Principles in addition to its SOC 1, Type II report in accordance with SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402, and its SOC 3 report on the Security and Availability Trust Services Principles.
Additionally, in response to customer requirements, it has doubled the number of facilities covered by the Payment Card Industry Report on Compliance for Sections 9 and 12 (PCI ROC). Furthermore, ViaWest has now added a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) report for physical controls covering four of its datacenters.
Attestation and compliance reports are issued by independent third-party auditors, which assess ViaWest’s controls and procedures. Assessments were performed by CoalFire Systems, a qualified security assessor, and a “Big 4” accounting firm.
“We understand the mission-critical nature of data to our customers’ businesses and the need to meet standards within the ever-changing compliance landscape. We put customer trust first,” stated Mary Sparks, Director of Compliance for ViaWest.
