Intacct SSAE 16 Data Security

Intacct features SSAE 16 SecurityYou Can Rely on Intacct to Safeguard Your Financial Data

The migration toward cloud applications is picking up speed. Many people already use the cloud for their banking, smartphone apps, iPad applications, music, videos, customer relations management (CRM), and much more. However, many companies and accountants are still using on-premise accounting software. One of the primary reasons some have not moved to cloud accounting software is their concern about the security of their data and their ability to access it.

Intacct understands their responsibility in protecting your highly-confidential business data and making it accessible to you. They are annually compliant with the SSAE 16 Type II Audited performed by an independent auditor who reviews their internal controls for correct and proper operations over their financial management and accounting application services. Data centers that successfully pass the SSAE 16 Type II Audited are the most secure in the world.

What is SSAE 16?

SSAE 16 replaced SAS 70 as the authoritative guidance for reporting on service organizations. The Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 is a report on a program's internal controls over its data security for service organizations that was finalized by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
