Standards Compliance Protects Your Data Integrity and Network Assets

Because you rely on your IT infrastructure to maintain data integrity and protect your business from financial losses, it’s a good idea to comply with legislated standards by investing in network monitoring and maintenance.

But compliance doesn’t have to be complex and expensive. Acendex can help. We know the standards and our complete managed services model enables us to quickly identify any areas of your network that do not comply.

To assess your level of current compliance, we’ll conduct a non-intrusive network audit that focuses on the seven key areas listed below. It’s a great way to establish a baseline for making improvements.


These seven areas (known as SAS70) have been defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
