InterCloud Completes SOC 2 Type II Report of Secure Online Backup Service Operations

SHREWSBURY, N.J., March 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems (Nasdaq:ICLD), a Hybrid Cloud provider focused on delivering a solution customized to each business customer's specific data backup needs, today announced that it has successfully completed a SSAE 16 Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II Audit covering its cloud data backup services. The report signifies that the Company's online backup services operational controls and security procedures have been thoroughly reviewed by an independent certified public accounting firm, and ensures the controls implemented there have been sufficiently designed and tested, specifically regarding InterCloud's implementation of security and availability.

The SOC 2 Type II audit was performed by the independent certified public accounting firm Whittlesey & Hadley, P.C., covering both InterCloud's VaultLogix Internet Vault Advantage and Internet Vault Classic online backup services, including the primary data centers for those services. Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SSAE 16 SOC 2 replaced the SAS 70 in 2011 as the officially recognized auditing standard for service organizations to demonstrate they have adequate controls and processes in place. A SOC 2 Type II examination demonstrates that an independent accounting and auditing firm has reviewed and examined an organization's control objectives and activities, and tested those controls to ensure that they are operating effectively. At the conclusion of the examination, a formal report including the auditor's opinion is issued to the examined organization.

"VaultLogix focuses extensively on optimal operational effectiveness, availability, and security implementation for our business online backup customers," said Tim Hannibal, President and Chief Executive Officer for VaultLogix. "Completing a full SOC 2 Type II audit further demonstrates our commitment to delivering the most secure and robust online backup services in the market."

VaultLogix maintains a strong focus on delivering offsite backup solutions that help companies adhere to strict compliance regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, PCI, and Graham-Leach-Bliley. Completing the SOC 2 Type II audit further exemplifies that dedication.

Customers in need of assurance that their data is sufficiently secure and available may request a copy of the SOC 2 report by contacting VaultLogix directly.
