EdgeWave, a leader in Secure Content Management (SCM) solutions to enterprise and service provider markets, announced today that it has completed its SSAE 16 certification. The SSAE (Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements) 16, which replaces SAS 70, is an internationally recognized third-party assurance audit designed for service organizations and establishes data protection, privacy, confidentiality and reporting standards.

“The successful completion of this external audit is evidence that the integrity of our operating procedures and the quality of our technology is world class, “ said Ian Thompson VP, Technical Operations at EdgeWave. “It also supports our continued expansion into the enterprise marketplace and it reflects our commitment to the most demanding of customer environments from our SMB accounts up to our largest fortune 500 clients, where SSAE 16 is typically a prerequisite.”

The audit determined that the technology, business processes, physical security, and infrastructure controls meet or surpass SSAE 16 standards. This certification is of particular importance to Edgewave’s financial services and healthcare customers, who demand secure and repeatable processes in order to meet their specific industry requirements.

A pioneer in internet security, EdgeWave has provided email and web security technology for more than 14 years. Every day, thousands of enterprise customers and service providers trust EdgeWave to manage and secure their users from emerging internet-based threats. With SSAE 16, these same customers are assured that their data is thoroughly protected and secured by EdgeWave.

“We’re committed to operating our organization and portfolio of technology solutions at a level that meets or exceeds the highest industry and regulatory standards. With this certification, we will be helping our clients keep pace with the rapidly changing compliance landscape while at the same time positioning EdgeWave for continued growth,” concluded Thompson.
