An external auditor has just recertified Datotel as being SAS70 Type 2 compliant. The Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70: Service Organizations (SAS70) is a standard recognized by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants attesting to the internal controls placed in operation. The SAS 70 report ensures that service providers, design and place into operation an effective internal control environment to host and protect clients’ sensitive data.
This is our third year of holding this level of certification and not only is it required by publicly traded firms to ensure their Sarbanes-Oxley compliance when working with us, but gives our non-publicly traded customers a good (independently audited) insight as to the policies, procedures and practices we use when dealing with their mission critical systems and information. The audit covers everything from employment practices through to maintenance practices and activities.
