Business Continuity and Compliance Solution from Pointivity

With business becoming more complex and interconnected, the risk and cost of disruption extends well beyond IT, to every aspect of business processes. Business continuity is vital to business success.

In addition there are many regulations that cover Business Continuity and the overall category of Electronic Media. Some of these are industry specific such as Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), SOX, SEC, FINRA and HIPAA.

Pointivity manages all client infrastructures through a state-of-the-art SAS 70 (Statement on Auditing Standards No.70) Type II compliance data center, reflecting a consistent, reliable and secure operating environment to support customers worldwide. Keep in mind that all hardware are owned, maintained, and managed completely by Pointivity.

That's the foundation of our Hosted Services and IT Outsourced Solution. We then add our Backup & Disaster Recovery Solution (BDR) and Messaging Archiving Solutions to deliver a comprehensive business continuity and compliance solution.

This cost effective solution can be tailored to individual business needs on a pay-as-you-go per user per month model while support is available via our Managed Services to provide a complete continuity program.

About the SAS 70 Type II:
SAS 70 is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SAS 70 is an acronym for ‘Statement of Auditing Standards.'

SAS 70 demonstrates that service providers have adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data related to their customer base.

The audit includes on-boarding policies for new hires, disaster recovery and business continuity planning, IT and physical security policies, data backup and recovery procedures, provisioning of services, asset tracking and inventory management, separation of client infrastructures, decommissioning of servers and services, and other business practices.
