Hampton, NH (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Security7 Networks today announced that it will undergo the MSPAlliance’s (MSPA) Unified Certification Standard for Cloud and Managed Service Providers audit (UCS). UCS is the first program of its kind, specifically designed and created to provide business consumers of cloud and managed services with the assurance that the service provider they hire meets or exceeds the highest principles of quality in areas such as financial stability, facilities, managed services practices, and customer satisfaction.
"The UCS audit is a rigorous audit and certification process that benchmarks and verifies the quality of the company providing managed services,” said Charles Weaver, MSPAlliance president. "We are very proud to have Security7 Networks undertake this important milestone for cloud and MSPs.”
UCS was created, using a wide base of criteria, to certify and audit cloud and Managed IT Solution Providers thereby ensuring that they have met and exceed well-established standards of excellence and client care. Customers who select a company that is part of the UCS can also rest assured that their IT solution provider has met and exceeded the following standards:
? Physical & Virtual Security
? Business & Financial stability
? Company has taken reasonable steps to assure that the client’s IT needs will be safely and professionally addressed
? Company is under constant external review from the MSPAlliance and the IT profession to continually maintain and improve standards of care of excellence
The UCS audit is performed by Frost, PLLC, a third party accounting firm.
“Security7 Networks is looking forward to working with the professionals at the MSPAlliance in completing our SSAE 16 and UCS examinations.” “We know that the positive results will provide a great value to our organization, but more importantly provide our customers with confidence in our operations.”
