Sterling Commerce announced that its Sterling Information BrokerSM product has passed the SAS 70 Type II (Statement of Auditing Standards Number 70) audit.

The SAS 70 Type II assurance confirms that the Sterling Information Broker infrastructure has passed rigorous third-party testing and that it has strict processes in place relating to security, application development, communications, customer service and disaster planning – all integral to the mandatory requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley.
