More MSPs Pursue SAS 70 Type II Audits

I'm not suggesting that managed service providers are marching in masses toward SAS 70 Type II certification. But anecdotal evidence suggests top MSPs continue to embrace the certification. True believers include Nirvanix, a cloud storage provider in San Diego.

Nirvanix this week said it had "successfully completed the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) Type II audit." The audit was evaluated and tested by an independent accounting and auditing firm, the company added.

As MSPmentor has reported, SAS 70 is an auditing standard for service organizations developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It is a widely recognized assessment of a company’s strengths of internal controls based upon identified objectives, notes Nirvanix.

The MSPAlliance, an association of managed service providers, in April 2009 announced plans to offer SAS 70 Type I and Type II audits through a partner called SAS70 Service.
