SSAE No. 16, which replaces SAS 70 is a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, which represents that a service organization has been through an in-depth audit of their control objectives and control activities.
A vendor that undergoes an SSAE 16 examination is rigorously evaluated on its controls over its system architecture and the service it provides to customers. The areas of examination include: infrastructure, software, employees, procedures and data handling.
“Third-party audits are strenuous to be sure,” said Emily Huang, Rivet’s Co-founder and SVP of Sales and Marketing, “but they’re the best way we can demonstrate to our clients that we’re responsibly handling and protecting their data.”
Rivet, the most tested and used XBRL management and filing system in the industry, recently introduced an updated version of its popular Crossfire Solutions financial reporting software, Crossfire 5.3. Designed for companies looking to expand the usage of XBRL, Crossfire 5.3 includes an analytics component to both create and consume corporate XBRL filings.
