OneNeck® IT Services, a Leading Hosted Application Management Company, Successfully Completes SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2 Audit in Its Arizona Data Centers

OneNeck Continues to Demonstrate Commitment to Providing Customers With the Highest Standards in Processes, Controls, and Procedures

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - OneNeck® IT Services, a leading hosted application management company, announced today they have successfully completed  their compliance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16, SOC 1 Type 2.

Conducted by a leading accounting firm, OneNeck's SSAE 16 focuses on procedures, including physical and environmental security, problem management, technical support, customer ordering/service delivery, network equipment monitoring, and organization and administration. The Service Organization Control (SOC 1) reports on controls at a service organization relevant to user entities' internal controls over financial reporting. The Type 2 report focuses on management's description of the service organization's system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of the controls to achieve the related control objectives included in the description throughout a specified period.

OneNeck's controls for the audit were created using the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practices in information assurance and security. The systems and processes evaluated in this audit included: organizational and management control environment, computer operations, physical security, information security, incident management, change management, internal systems management, and application development.

OneNeck customers will find the SSAE 16 beneficial as evidence in achieving their own compliance needs without duplicating the same auditing steps.

"The successful completion of our SSAE 16 should give customers comfort that the processes and procedures behind the services they receive have been audited and tested by an independent third party," commented Chuck Vermillion, chief executive officer for OneNeck. "OneNeck is committed to providing the best security and service available in the industry."
