SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Herakles, LLC, a leading provider of mission critical colocation services is proud to announce SAS70 Solutions, Inc. completed examination of a Type II audit for conformity with Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70, Service Organizations.

In the past 5 years Herakles has been successful in achieving a Type I certification.  "However, many of our clients requested that we perform the more in depth Type II review in order to conform to their auditing requirements," said Lou Kirchner, President and CEO of Herakles, LLC.  "Further, we were confident that the organization had in place the necessary controls in order to successfully achieve the Type II certification".

Completion of an SAS 70 examination proves selected Herakles, LLC processes, procedures, and controls have been formally reviewed and evaluated, including the company's security monitoring, change management, problem management, back-up and environmental controls, logical and physical access. As the definitive standard established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the SAS 70 examination analyzes a service organization's controls in relation to an audit of the financial statements of its customers.

The SAS 70 audit provides third-party assurance as to the controls placed in operation at a service organization and that the controls under review are those outsourced to a third party and impact their client's internal control environment. Stakeholders may place more reliance on the controls at a service organization who has undergone a SAS 70 audit than a company that has not. By utilizing a firm specializing in performing SAS 70 audits, Herakles' controls are measured against best practice standards to provide feedback for continuous improvement of its services and controls.
