Tenzing Becomes Canada's first SAS 70 and ISO 27001 Certified Hosting Company

    TORONTO, May 20 /CNW/ - Tenzing Managed IT Services, one of Canada's
leading managed hosting companies, announced its successful completion of a
rigorous SAS 70 Information Security Standards audit. This audit makes Tenzing
the only managed IT services company in Canada to be certified against both
the ISO 27001 and SAS 70 standards, used globally for evaluating information
security processes and control procedures.
    These international auditing standards, developed by the American
Institute of Certified Public Accountants and International Organization for
Standardization (ICO) allow service providers such as Tenzing to demonstrate
appropriate security and safeguards when they host or process second party
information. Tenzing has invested heavily in rigorous security and control
processes, including physical and network security, environmental controls,
business continuity and business governance at its datacenters and operations
centers in Toronto, Kelowna, and Vancouver.
    Brian Shepard, CEO of Tenzing notes "We are committed to best practices
and supporting our client base of mid to large enterprises and
Software-as-a-Service companies in Canada and the U.S. who are doing business
globally and need to be compliant with the two key international information
security standards. The successful SAS 70 audit by PricewaterhouseCoopers and
the recent ISO 27001 certification granted by BSI demonstrate this
    Tenzing's ISO 27001 and SAS 70 certifications include these benefits:

    -   Confidence that Tenzing offers compliance to the information security
        standards governing North America, Europe, and Asia;

    -   Third party assurance that Tenzing has suitable information security
        controls in place and operating effectively around its datacenter,
        network and business operations;

    -   Significant cost savings compared to achieving and maintaining these
        certifications in-house.

    Tenzing was founded in 1998. The company's award-winning approach to
hosting business-critical internet applications is comprehensive and
collaborative. Grounded in ITIL best practices, their five step "Summit with
Tenzing" approach addresses the entire IT lifecycle to deliver a new level of
managed IT hosting service. Tenzing holds both ISO 27001 and SAS 70
certification. Identified in each of the last three years as one of Canada's
fastest growing companies by Profit Magazine, Tenzing has customer service
centers in Kelowna, BC and Toronto, Ontario, and datacenters in Canada's
primary NAPs: 151 Front Street, Toronto and the Harbour Centre, Vancouver.
