IO Receives SSAE 16 Type 2 Certification for Modular Data Centers

IO, the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services, announced today the company has completed a SSAE 16 Type 2 audit covering three operational data centers – IO New JerseyIO Phoenix and IO Scottsdale.

Certification of IO New Jersey and IO Phoenix further validates the resiliency and operational excellence of IO’s next-generation modular data centers and further proves that the era of DC2.0, hardware and software enabled data centers, has truly arrived.

“Designed, engineered and manufactured in the US using standards-based components and processes, IO.Anywhere offers unmatched reliability, in a repeatable manner. This SSAE 16 accreditation will only further accelerate the increased customer adoption of our highly secure and scalable modular Data Center solution,” said David Shaw, Chief Operating Officer of IO.

SSAE 16 is designed to provide IO customers with a level of assurance of corporate controls and has replaced existing SAS 70 Type 1 and Type 2 audit reports. Deloitte & Touche LLP, a leader in audit, tax, consulting, risk, and financial advisory services, conducted the IO SSAE 16 audit.

The report, produced after a rigorous independent examination of IO’s internal controls and processes, demonstrates the reliability, security and operational excellence of IO’s modular data center technology for its customers. IO’s SSAE 16 report scope focuses on procedures performed by IO, which are likely to be relevant to its customers’ internal controls over financial reporting. The report is intended for use by IO’s customers and their auditors.
