Are you SSAE16 Compliance?
Standards for Attestation Engagement No. 16 (SSAE16) is a third party assurance audit for service organizations (revised version of SAS70). This audit is internationally recognized and serves as a standard for service organizations around the world.
Most companies get this audit done because their partners require it or because it can set them apart from their competitors. Having a clean SSAE 16 audit allows for companies to compete on an international level and allows your customers to give you their business with complete confidence.

SOC 1 is a report generated from an SSAE 16 audit performed by a specialized CPA. It focuses on the internal controls over financial reporting within a service organization. SOC 2 & 3 take into account system security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. The table to the left shows the differences between SOC 1, 2, & 3 reports.
