Cloud computing, hosting and managed services operator RPE Outsourcing completes SSAE 16 examination

Stringent controls protect critical data to ensure quality and security

Land O’ Lakes, Fla. (February 10, 2015) – RPE Outsourcing, LLC (RPEO), a retail cloud computing and operations management service provider, announced today that it has completed an SOC 1 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16, also known as SSAE 16) Type 2 examination.

“RPEO is a reliable and secure alternative to retailers hosting and managing their own services and application software. The RPEO Data Center offers security as well as improved availability and scalability,” said Cliff Epstein, president, RPEO. “By adhering to strict industry-regulated standards and completing the SSAE 16 examination, our exacting standards and implicit guidelines ensure compliance with security procedures to keep data safe.”

SSAE 16, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants SSAE-logo(AICPA), is the most widely recognized authoritative guidance that provides service organizations a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls related to their services. Companies that complete an annual SOC 1 examination are able to demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operational visibility than those companies that do not.

The completion of the SOC 1 (SSAE 16) Type 2 examination typifies RPEO’s continued commitment to create and maintain the most stringent controls needed to ensure the highest quality and security of services provided to its customers. The Service Auditor’s report demonstrates that RPEO’s control activities were effectively designed and in operation throughout the reporting period

The Service Auditors’ Report, issued by 360 Advanced, includes a detailed description of RPEO’s controls and an independent assessment of whether the controls are placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively.
