Completion of the SAS 70 Type I audit indicates the successful examination of our processes, controls and procedures, pertaining to managed hosting services and the general computer controls at our Miami and Atlanta data centers, by the independent accounting and auditing firm Deloitte & Touche LLP.

SAS 70 is designated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an acceptable method for a user organization's management to obtain assurance about the service organization's internal controls without conducting customer-specific assessments.

Jad Jebara, PEER 1’s VP, Finance and IT commented, “All service providers, no matter what industry, have a responsibility to manage internal processes efficiently, effectively and with a high level of transparency. This is especially important when a company hosts or processes customers’ data – as we do at PEER 1. Completing SAS 70 audit means that all PEER 1 customers can be sure that they will get a safe, reliable service that is managed in controlled manner.”
