NuVox® Data Centers Achieve SAS 70 Certification

NuVox, a leading competitive communications provider serving businesses across the Southeast and Midwest, announced today that its data centers achieved a Statement of Auditing Standard Number 70 (SAS 70) Type I certification. Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SAS 70 is one of the most widely recognized standards for service organizations, like NuVox, to evaluate the effectiveness of internal controls based on control objectives. To receive SAS 70 Type I certification, a third-party auditing firm assessed NuVox’s processes, safeguards, and controls associated with the physical security of its data centers.

The NuVox® VoxDCSM data center product (VoxDC) offers fortified, stand-alone facilities designed to house networking equipment for small to medium sized business customers. With uninterrupted power, 24×7 video surveillance, and redundant Internet capability, businesses greatly benefit from storing their mission-critical information and equipment in a secure environment.

“With a focus on disaster recovery and security, VoxDC offers a cost-effective solution to any business looking for a Telco-grade facility with network redundancy and experienced engineering support,” stated Jim Jones, Director of Product Management for NuVox. “Achieving SAS 70 Type I certification aligns perfectly with our data center product strategy and effectively illustrates NuVox’s continued commitment to delivering the highest quality products to our business customers.”
Earlier this year, NuVox opened dedicated VoxDC facilities in Jacksonville, FL, Nashville, TN, and Atlanta, GA. Plans are underway to open a South Florida center in early 2010.
