Our customers face an ever increasing compliance burden, and this is why PEER 1 Hosting is compliant with standards of SSAE 16, CSAE 3416, and ISAE 3402. These accreditations reflect controls which are in place over a period of time, commonly referred to within the industry as Type II. Our SSAE 16 certification, or equivalent (CSAE 3416 and ISAE 3402), shifts a bit of the financial reporting burden from our customers to PEER 1, as our customers can use our certification report to satisfy their own auditors. What this means is that we have undergone independent, in-depth audits of our control activities, including how we manage the hosting and network technologies and services that we provide to our customers. We renew this certification annually as it ensures that our internal controls are kept to the highest standards.
