SAS 70 Compliance
Equinix is SAS 70 Type II compliant for Colocation and Data Center Services
The SAS 70 audit minimizes the need for multiple sets of auditors to separately examine the same set of controls that govern a third party's services. "SAS" is an acronym for Statement on Auditing Standards, which are standards issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. These standards provide guidance to external auditors on Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS) in regards to auditing an entity and issuing a report. There are more than one hundred such standards in existence.
SAS No. 70 is titled "Reports on the Processing of Transactions by Service Organizations". "SAS 70", as it is commonly known, defines the professional standards used by a service auditor to assess the internal controls of a service organization and issue a service auditor's report, which is referred to as a SAS 70 audit report.
SAS 70 Type II - Report on Controls Placed in Operation and Tests of Operating Effectiveness.
Officially known as a "Report on Controls Placed in Operation and Tests of Operating Effectiveness" or a "Type 2 Service Auditor's Report", Type 2 SAS 70 audits provide independent third party verification by a licensed CPA firm as to whether control activities described by a service organization were suitably designed to meet specified control objectives and were in place and operating effectively over a period of time that is typically at least a six month period.
The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) recently issued the new International Standard on Assurance Engagements ISAE 3402, Assurance Reports on Controls at a Third Party Service Organization. As a result, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) redrafted the Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) 70 guidance around the execution of third-party Service Organization reports: Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16, Reporting on Controls in a Service Organization. These new standards will be effective for service auditors’ assurance reports covering periods ending on or after June 15, 2011. These revisions of SAS 70 represent the first significant modifications to the standard since it was issued nearly two decades ago. SSAE 16 is intended to help bring US companies up to date with new international service organization reporting standards, ISAE 3402. This will simplify the process for auditing and reporting on international organizations.
IBX SAS 70 Type II certifications vary by IBX. In order to receive our most recent SAS 70 report please contact your Account Manager.
