Huntington Beach, Calif., August 18, 2010 - FireScope, Inc., the fastest growing IT Service Management solutions software company, and Squar Milner, CPAs, one of the leading independent accounting and advisory firms in California, today announced their strategic alliance to create an integrated SAS 70 compliance package to consolidate, automate, and simplify compliance efforts thereby reducing the burdens and costs associated with SAS 70 regulatory audits.
“With SAS 70 compliance requirements on the rise, businesses need a way to make audits more manageable for the long term,” said Ernest Miranda, Partner-in-Charge of Squar Milner’s Audit and Assurance Services Department. “FireScope’s leading IT control automation, combined with Squar Milner’s best practices around manual and application controls, provides customers with an integrated SAS70 compliance solution that significantly reduces the costs and risks associated with SAS 70 audit preparation.”
“FireScope and Squar Milner are helping to meet the demand we see in the compliance marketplace for an out-of-the-box, integrated and comprehensive SAS 70 strategy,” said Josh Levine, VP of Business Development for FireScope. “We are fortunate to work with an experienced firm like Squar Milner who shares our same vision of helping to simplify achieving and maintaining SAS 70 compliance so customers can focus on their core businesses versus chasing down data for auditors.”
FireScope compliance solutions are designed to reduce external audit fees and internal costs associated with compliance and audit preparation. FireScope’s Compliance software combines administrative, operational, and Continuous Control Monitoring (CCM) for SAS 70, SOX, PCI, HIPAA, NERC and user defined policies and controls into a single dashboard for a holistic picture of compliance status. This innovative approach for managing compliance is achieved through five key features – automated monitoring of key controls, real-time dashboards, intuitive checklists, an extensible architecture, and powerful inline reporting.
