Independent Third-Party Validation is a Prerequisite Cloud Computing

Increasingly, cloud service providers must get third-party validation (verification) of the efforts they make for security, policy enforcement and authentication in order to land business customers. SAS 70, which predates the popularity of cloud computing, has been pressed into action as a validation tool, in the absence of cloud-specific standards. The SAS Web site says:

A service auditor’s examination performed in accordance with SAS No. 70 (a “SAS 70 Audit”) is widely recognized, because it represents that a service organization has been through an in-depth audit of their control objectives and control activities, which often include controls over information technology and related processes.
