Eshgro extends ISAE 3402 report with tightened standards

Cloud service broker Eshgro from Boxmeer, the Netherlands, has again been granted an ISAE 3402 report for their services. Eshgro has been certified longer, but took on a tighter, international set of standards this year. In line with the growth strategy the bar has been raised even higher to guarantee data continuity and integrity. The measures that were taken have been positively evaluated by an independent auditor.

The services provided by Eshgro are audited several times a year. Constant quality and a high reliability are very much valued at Eshgro. Anton Loeffen, CEO of Eshgro: “We check processes and work on a daily basis. Our partners and clients have to be able to place a blind trust on our cloud services. Apart from the ISAE 3402 type 2 report, we have also been certified ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 for two years now. It’s how we show that we are in control.”

ISAE 3402 is an international standard for reports on outsourced processes (SOC reports). For a type 2 audit a substantive assessment of the setup and workings of these processes is made over a period of at least 6 months. It is stated that those measures indeed worked effectively in that period of time. This makes the ISAE 3402 report especially valuable to accountants and financial organisations.

Research shows that 80% of all organisations looking for an IT supplier request demonstrable assurances of careful procedures. This applies to the storage, processing and management of data and equipment. ISAE 3402 type 2 indicates that the reliability of the supplier has been demonstrated.

Eshgro offers IT partners and their clients the means to create an IT setup based on functionality. One of the tools they use is the innovative CSB Suite, which enables businesses to create a cloud solution in seven steps. Instead of technology taking centre stage, the business goals of the client are leading. As of last year Eshgro has also been active abroad. The tightened ISAE standards fit this international growth strategy.
