New York, NY

Leading colocation services provider Birns.net explained the importance of SSAE 16 for global businesses, in particular Colocation Data Centers. The attest standard certifies that a company complies with requirements that provide a high quality of service on an international scale.

SSAE 16 substituted SAS 70 in 2010, becoming the new auditing standard approved by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The process consists of a written statement of assertion where organizations explain their services and operations. The statement is then audited to corroborate the information.

A Colocation Data Center often handles data from different locations, which is one of the main advantages of the cloud. For that reason, a globally accepted certification works in favor of providers and clients. It is a reason to trust the organization as a responsible data manager.

The SSAE 16 standard shows customers that colocation centers are able to handle their valuable data properly with high security measures. But at a business point of view, it proves that the organization has undergone a reputable external audit. And since it is a completely objective examination, it is not affected by any internal aspects.

The full ‘Colocation Data Center: What Is SSAE 16 and Why Is It Important?’ blog post is available on the company website. It provides further details about basic colocation data services and announces that Birns Telecommunications will obtain the SSAE 16 this month.

Birns.net provides specialized colocation services scalable for different business needs. A full online catalog is available on the company website, where customers can make their direct enquiries and orders. Additionally, qualified staff members can handle customer requirements via 1-800-BIRNS-NET.
