Syringa Networks Completes AICPA's SOC 2 Audit

BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syringa Networks, LLC announced today that it has completed the AICPA's SOC 2SM, Type 1 evaluation for security and process integrity for its colocation facilities. The audit was performed by Olsen Thielen & Co., LTD, a Certified Public Accountant and Consulting firm that specializes in integrated compliance solutions, including conducting SOC 2 examinations. The Service Organization Control (SOC) Reports, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is the most widely recognized set of criteria, providing organizations with a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls related to their services. Companies who complete an annual SOC 2 examination are able to demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operational visibility than those companies who do not.

Completion of the examination is further evidence of Syringa Networks ongoing commitment to operational and process excellence. Specifically, this is verification of the company's security as well as integrity of its management and operational processes at their colocation facilities. The Service Auditors' Report issued by Olsen Thielen, as an independent third party, demonstrates that Syringa Networks control activities are being effectively designed and executed.

"We are pleased to have completed this important milestone at our colocation facilities," said Greg Lowe, President of Syringa Networks. "Successful completion of the SOC 2 audit gives our customers and partners further confidence that their data is being managed in a secure, reliable, and cost effective manner."

The Service Auditors' Report includes a detailed description of Syringa Networks controls and an independent assessment of whether the controls are placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively. Customers and/or those seeking to do business with the company can request a copy of the Report.
