TORRANCE, California, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Agile-1, a global workforce management solutions company, is pleased to announce the successful completion of its annual Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16 and International Standards for Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3402 audits for 2013. Completion of the SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 audits provides evidence of Agile-1's strong commitment to the integrity of its workforce procurement and vendor management solution, AccelerationVMS.
The results of the audits were "unqualified," meaning that the control measures in place are effective and operating as designed. "Receiving an unqualified report validates our commitment to adhere to internationally recognised standards of quality and process control principles," said David Lewis, Senior Vice President of Contingent Solutions for Agile-1. "The results of the audit are further evidence to our clients that their trust in us to provide privacy and security is well founded."
SSAE 16 is a recognised third-party assurance audit for service providers. ISAE 3402 is an internationally recognised standard for reporting controls at service organisations. To ensure a comprehensive audit for both reports, Agile-1 identified 14 areas of control, including enterprise-wide management systems, policies and procedures, network operations, data, change management, design and development, implementation, security, computer controls, accounting and billing processes. Since initiating audits of this kind, Agile-1 has consistently received unqualified reports.
