What Is SSAE-18

As a revision of SSAE-16, the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 18 (SSAE-18) establishes the standards for how ColoCrossing handles, operates, and controls data related to customers and financial reporting. Through these standards we provide the ability for customers to gain insight into the controls we have in place which maintain a controlled environment for colocation and dedicated server hosting services. There are various frameworks under SSAE-18 called Service Organization Controls (SOC)s. ColoCrossing has undergone SOC 1 assessments and can provide the resulting compliance reports to clients upon request.
