Boston, MA – June 15, 2009 – Intronis, a leading provider of secure online data backup, archiving and recovery solutions for service providers and businesses, today announced its auditors have approved a service auditor’s review of the company, commonly known as a SAS 70.
The SAS 70 process includes an in-depth examination and audit of the effectiveness of an organization’s internal controls and its compliance to these controls.

The SAS 70 report addresses all five components of internal control outlined in the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation, namely the control environment, risk assessment activities, control activities, information and communication systems, and monitoring activities.
