Asure Software Achieves SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Type II Certification

Stocks in this article: ASUR

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asure Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software solutions, today announced that it has successfully completed a Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagement No. 16 ( SSAE 16 or SOC 1) Type II audit for its AsureForce® Time & Labor Management solution. An SSAE 16 audit is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to examine the controls and processes involved in storing, handling, and transmitting data securely.

Asure's Type II audit, performed by an independent licensed Certified Public Accounting firm that specializes in conducting SSAE 16 audits, included a detailed review of the design and operating effectiveness of Asure's controls related to network connectivity, firewall configuration, computer operations, database access, data transmissions, backup, software development, and other supporting areas. Asure received a Service Auditors' Report with a clean opinion and no exceptions, demonstrating that its policies, procedures, and operations for the areas reviewed met or exceeded the stringent SSAE 16 criteria.

"The successful completion of this voluntary audit illustrates Asure's ongoing commitment to create and maintain the most stringent controls for the protection and security of our clients' confidential information," said Steven Rodriguez, Asure Software's Chief Operating Officer.

SSAE 16 audits have become increasingly important for data-handling service providers since the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation, which requires companies' business partners to have adequate internal controls. Asure customers can incorporate its Service Auditors' Report in their Sarbanes-Oxley compliance programs as proof that appropriate controls are in place. The SSAE 16 audit also can help Asure customers to comply with other regulations, including HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999), and ISO 27001.
