Charles Denyer Charles Denyer Profile: Charles Denyer

SAS70 audits have quickly become a mainstay in the world of data centers, managed services and co-location entities, and this will no doubt continue to grow. This is happening for a large number of reasons, but primarily data centers (and any variant thereof, such as managed services, co-location entities with “ping, power and pipe”) are hosting and residing an ever growing and enormous amount of information for many service providers. These service providers are commonly being asked to be SAS70 Type II compliant. As such, the data centers used by these very service organizations are commonly included within the scope of the SAS70 audit.

And what should data centers take from this? A good idea would be to become SAS70 compliant, and here’s why.

1. SAS70 compliance help mitigate and possibly eliminate many of these specialized requests your clients are asking for in helping them facilitate their own SAS70 compliance.

2. It greatly helps with business development and marketing for data centers.

3. It helps unearth any weaknesses or deficiencies you may have within your control environment.
