Asure Software Achieves SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Type II Certification
Auditing System Verifies That Asure's Controls and Processes for Storing,
Handling and Transmitting Data Meet Stringent Industry Standards
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asure Software, Inc.
(Nasdaq:ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software solutions,
today announced that it has successfully completed a Statement on Standards
for Attestation Engagement No. 16 (SSAE 16 or SOC 1) Type II audit for its
AsureForce® Time & Labor Management solution. An SSAE 16 audit is an
internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American
Institute of Certified Public Accountants to examine the controls and
processes involved in storing, handling, and transmitting data securely.
Asure's Type II audit, performed by an independent licensed Certified Public
Accounting firm that specializes in conducting SSAE 16 audits, included a
detailed review of the design and operating effectiveness of Asure's controls
related to network connectivity, firewall configuration, computer operations,
database access, data transmissions, backup, software development, and other
supporting areas. Asure received a Service Auditors' Report with a clean
opinion and no exceptions, demonstrating that its policies, procedures, and
operations for the areas reviewed met or exceeded the stringent SSAE 16
"The successful completion of this voluntary audit illustrates Asure's ongoing
commitment to create and maintain the most stringent controls for the
protection and security of our clients' confidential information," said Steven
Rodriguez, Asure Software's Chief Operating Officer.
SSAE 16 audits have become increasingly important for data-handling service
providers since the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation, which requires
companies' business partners to have adequate internal controls. Asure
customers can incorporate its Service Auditors' Report in their Sarbanes-Oxley
compliance programs as proof that appropriate controls are in place. The SSAE
16 audit also can help Asure customers to comply with other regulations,
including HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), GLBA
(Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999), and ISO 27001.
