Acquia, the enterprise guide to open-source content management system Drupal, announced that it has recently completed and obtained a service auditor's review for the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16.

SSAE 16, which replaces the previous SAS70 auditing standard, is a regulatory standard issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. A critical component in achieving SSAE 16 compliance is an organization's ability to reduce risk and provide clients with controlled security measures.

SSAE 16 certification, covering Acquia Managed Cloud and corporate controls, demonstrates Acquia's ability to handle data in a secure cloud-based environment.
