					First To File Passes New SSAE 16 Audit for Third
Year, without Exception, to Ensure Operational
Visibility and Security Assurance for Clients
December 21, 2011 09:06 AM Eastern Time 

SAN MATEO, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--First To File®, a provider of secure IP management
services, announced today that it has successfully completed a SOC 1 SSAE 16 examination. First To File passed
the audit without exception for the third year in a row.

SSAE 16 is an improvement to the SAS70. Companies who complete an annual SOC 1 (SSAE 16) examination 
are able to demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operational visibility than those companies who
do not.

The completion of the SOC 1 (SSAE 16) Type II examination typifies First To File’s continued commitment to
create and maintain the most stringent controls needed to provide the highest quality and security of services to their
customers. The Service Auditors’ Report demonstrates that First To File’s control activities were effectively
designed and in operation throughout the reporting period.

“First To File’s priority is always to protect its clients and their data, and we are dedicated to performing at the
highest level in that regard,” remarked James Bergeron, CEO of First To File. “SSAE 16 certification is the gold
standard in customer protection and transparency and we are proud to have achieved this distinction. Our clients will
benefit from our continued adherence to the SSAE guidelines, and we are committed to upholding these principles
for years to come.” 

The Service Auditors’ Report includes a detailed description of First To File’s controls and an independent
assessment of whether the controls are placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively. To receive a
copy of the Service Auditors’ Report, or for any further questions, please contact Kurt Wedel at
