Atlantic.Net Achieves SSAE-18 SOC 1 and SOC 2 Certification

Atlantic.Net has recently been externally validated per Service Organization Control SSAE 18 SOC 1 and SOC 2 auditing standards and has attained SSAE-18 certification in compliance with AICPA standard principles. Atlantic.Net is one of the first service companies to achieve the certification.

To attain certification, Atlantic.Net was audited by the national security and compliance solutions provider, A-Lign. The audit covered organization-wide system controls and how well Atlantic.Net’s controls were designed to achieve the control objectives. The audit also involved tests to determine the operational effectiveness of the controls.

The auditor’s report confirmed that is in full compliance with AICPA Standard Principles and achieved the standard required for certification.

“This certification demonstrates the auditor’s confidence in our world class infrastructure, system controls, and our continued mission to deliver excellence to our clients,” said Marty Puranik, CEO of Atlantic.Net. “Authenticating these processes to ensure our clients are provided with consistent, high quality deliverables is of the utmost importance to us, as we continue to effectively service their cloud environments.”

Atlantic.Net is also committed to HIPAA-compliance and offers a fully HIPAA compliant hosting solution for healthcare providers and a range of associated services. There is no official compliance certification for HIPAA or HITECH. To demonstrate HIPAA standards have been met and surpassed, Atlantic.Net has undergone assessments with leading compliance firms and has demonstrated the firm is fully compliant with HIPAA and HITECH Act requirements.

The company continues to adhere to the strictest standards for privacy and security and regularly re-evaluates its privacy and security controls to ensure they continue to provide an exceptional level of protection for its systems and clients’ data.
