PEER 1 Hosting Completes Successful SSAE 16 Type II and CSAE 3416 Audit

SOUTHAMPTON, UK, Aug. 17 — PEER 1 Hosting, the global web hosting provider, today announced it has successfully completed two independent audits. The Standards for Attestation Engagements 16 (SSAE 16) Type II and Canadian Standard on Assurance Engagements 3416 (CSAE 3416) were completed for the period between July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. Undertaking these internationally-recognised audits assures that PEER 1 Hosting's controls, processes and procedures adhere to accreditation requirements and industry best practices.

The audit scope was expanded to include managed hosting, dedicated hosting and colocation services across six data centres. Certification to these globally recognised standards validates PEER 1 Hosting's control environment and provides customers with greater independent assurance and objectivity that their hosting facilities are compliant with industry mandates. In turn, customers in the UK and abroad can put reliance on PEER 1 Hosting's internal controls for their security and audit requirements. This is of particular importance for government and global enterprises, as well as organisations that are faced with rigorous financial, operational and compliance requirements.

"At PEER 1 Hosting we are committed to delivering superior information security infrastructure so customers can focus on their core business and eliminate the need for their companies to be subjected to the costs associated with multiple audits," said Ted Smith, senior vice president, Operations, PEER 1 Hosting. "Completing SSAE 16 Type II and CSAE 3416 audits furthers our commitment, providing customers with peace of mind, transparency, and confidence in our control systems and ensuring the continual security of their information."

PEER 1 Hosting previously completed the SSAE 16 and CSAE 3416 audits in 2011 when they replaced the SAS70 and CICA 5970 respectively as the new standards in reporting. Prior to the change, PEER 1 Hosting completed the SAS70 Type II and CICA 5970 audits in 2010.
