Miramar, FL -- April 29, 2009- Chetu, Inc., today announced that it has achieved the SAS 70 Type II certification, one of the most stringent auditing standards for service organizations. The SAS 70 Type II certification reaffirms that Chetu has stringent processes and controls around its unique software delivery model. It also reaffirms that Chetu maintains a secure information security and data communications infrastructure.
These high quality operations are required today by all industries and especially by customers that rely on outsourcing partners to deliver mission critical services that may include accessing their technical infrastructure. The SAS 70 Type II audit was performed through meticulous reviews and tests of Chetu's operational procedures and controls by leading independent auditor SAS 70 Solutions, Inc. It also included a detailed review of Chetu's technical infrastructure, security, data storage and data communication with customers. SAS 70 was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for service providers who wish to prove a high level of control effectiveness to independent auditors, and has become one of the most widely recognized auditing standards for service organizations.
SAS 70 is the authoritative guidance that allows service organizations to disclose their control activities and processes to their customers and their customers' auditors in a uniform reporting format. The SAS 70 Type II audit included comprehensive reviews and tests of Chetu's controls and their compliance around infrastructure access, information security in general and between applications, data communications including data transmission, project lifecycle definition, project planning, software delivery, design, development, testing, version control, change control, change tracking, quality assurance, project governance and others.
