LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IDrive Inc., a leading cloud storage and online backup provider, today announced that its data centers are now SSAE 16 certified. IDrive is fully compliant and up-to-date with the most recent changes to the reporting standards of the Auditing Standards Board (ASB) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements 16) is a regulation that controls how service companies report their compliance controls. IDrive, previously approved by the older SAS 70 regulation, passed the audit and received approval that their infrastructure falls within accordance of the new standards. As per the new requirements, IDrive will provide written assertion to auditors that their service descriptions appropriately and accurately depict their organizational systems.

The audit covers internal procedures such as server monitoring, maintenance, and redundancy. It also addresses the overall health and structure of the company. "We feel SSAE 16 certification is essential and it's important to provide our users with the assurance that their data is stored securely within a stable, fully compliant company," says Justin Aucoin, IDrive Support Manager.

IDrive is also certified to assist companies within the medical, accounting, and legal professions to comply with industry specific regulations in order to avoid penalties. IDrive can assist businesses that are governed by the HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, SEC / NASD mandates in order to maintain complete backup records of their electronic business transactions while continuing to fully comply with industry standards.
