Continued commitment to the highest of standards for data centre operational excellence, FlexITy completes its annual SSAE 16 Type II examination after a stringent audit process by Ernst &Young (EY).

 

RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO, February 5, 2019: FlexITy Solutions Inc., an award winning provider of Unified Communications, Data Centre Technologies, Cloud and Managed Services, announced today that they have successfully completed the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 Type II examination. Assessed by auditors from EY, this certification demonstrates FlexITy’s commitment to the highest standards of operational excellence for its customers across Canada.

SSAE No. 16 is a reporting standard for service organizations put forth by the Auditing Standards Board (ASB) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SSAE16 addresses engagements undertaken by a service auditor for reporting on controls at service organizations that provide services to user entities, for which a service organization’s controls are likely to be relevant to a user entity’s internal control over financial reporting (ICFR).

The audit, which was conducted at FlexITy’s Canadian data centres, determined that every site now meets or exceeds SSAE16 standards for logical and physical security, change management, operations management and backup and recovery. The results of the audit were “unqualified”, meaning that the control measures in place are effective and operating as designed. This audit is of particular importance to FlexITy’s financial services and public sector clients, for which SSAE16 reporting on a service organization’s controls is often a requirement.

“To have completed the SSAE16 examination across all of our facilities is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Philip Fahim, Director of Managed Services, FlexITy. “For our customers, the assurance that we are delivering to the standards set by SSAE16 Type II for security and controls is critical and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement.”
