SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The SSAE 16 certification confirms Terra Verde's processes and control effectiveness in protecting client data, as well as its dedication to clients as a service provider based on audits performed by Schenck, an independent service auditor and Certified Public Accounting firm.

Schenck reviewed Terra Verde's managed security services offering, the suitability of the design, and the operating effectiveness of its controls. Terra Verde will continue to be audited to renew its SSAE 16 standing annually to be seen as a secure and responsible security provider option for businesses of all sizes and types.

According to Suzanne Farr, Chief Operations Officer, Terra Verde, "Continued audits ensure that there are no security weaknesses or gaps and we want our clients to know that we are on top of our environment to provide the best possible services to them."

She also stated that it is imperative to "provide assurance to our clients that our control objectives are appropriately designed and operating effectively."
