TORRANCE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Agile-1 is pleased to announce the successful completion of its SSAE 16 audit for 2012. The company combined their SSAE 16 examination with ISAE 3402 which is an internationally recognized standard for reporting controls at service organizations. Annual completion of the SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 audits demonstrates Agile-1's ongoing commitment to the integrity of its workforce procurement and vendor management solution AccelerationVMS.
Agile-1 received an unqualified report as a result of the audit. An "unqualified report" means the control measures are effective and resulted in no findings. "Receiving an unqualified report from a respected third-party auditor is an important part of our self-governance," said Peter Carvalho, president, Agile-1. "Our goal is to make sure every client receives the strict regulation adherence, streamlined processes, and time-honored best practices they have come to expect from us. Auditing is just one of the ways we make sure we are delivering on our promises to clients."
SSAE 16 is a recognized third-party assurance audit for service providers. In 2011, it effectively replaced its predecessor, the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70 Type II), as the leading compliance initiative for service organizations. ISAE 3402 is an internationally recognized standard for reporting controls at service organizations. To ensure a comprehensive audit Agile-1 identified 14 areas of control, including enterprise-wide management systems, policies and procedures, network operations, data, change management, design and development, implementation, security, computer controls, and accounting and billing processes. Since initiating audits of this kind Agile-1 has consistently received unqualified reports.
