SupraNet Communications, Inc. Receives SAS 70 Type II Certification

Madison, WI –– At the close of 2010, SupraNet Communications completed a SAS 70 Type II audit. As an internationally recognized auditing standard, it requires an in-depth audit on their controls, including on-site inspection and in-person employee interviews. This came after a SAS 70 Type I audit was executed in 2009, which met with their core value of constant improvement. Expanding upon this preliminary audit, the Type II assesses the operations of the business, including executive management, customer service, human resources, and information technology. Most importantly, it certifies that their data center has adequate controls and safeguards in place for their clients.

The SupraNet Enterprise Data Center provides a secure, reliable environment for their hosting customers. It delivers uninterruptible power sources, multiple backup power generators, fire suppression systems, and anti-static carbon fiber floor tiles. Security in the data center is provided through video surveillance, keycard access, break glass detectors, and biometric scanners, in addition to 24/7 monitoring. The SAS 70 Type II certification ensures that the SupraNet data center upholds the stringent standards that their compliance regulated customers require.

This report can presently be viewed by current and potential customers of SupraNet. Moving forward, SupraNet plans to have a SSAE 16 audit completed in 2011, in an effort to keep current with recent improvements in international auditing standards.
