SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - EdgeWave, a leader in Secure Content Management (SCM) solutions to enterprise and service provider markets, announced today that it has completed its SSAE 16 certification. The SSAE (Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements) 16, which replaces SAS 70, is an internationally recognized third-party assurance audit designed for service organizations and establishes data protection, privacy, confidentiality and reporting standards.
"The successful completion of this external audit is evidence that the integrity of our operating procedures and the quality of our technology is world class," said Ian Thompson VP, Technical Operations at EdgeWave. "It also supports our continued expansion into the enterprise marketplace and it reflects our commitment to the most demanding of customer environments from our SMB accounts up to our largest fortune 500 clients, where SSAE 16 is typically a prerequisite."
The audit determined that the technology, business processes, physical security, and infrastructure controls meet or surpass SSAE 16 standards. This certification is of particular importance to EdgeWave's financial services and healthcare customers, who demand secure and repeatable processes in order to meet their specific industry requirements.
