“We take auditing, security, and compliance seriously,” said Nate Bowler, AtTask co-founder and CTO. “These are top-of-mind issues for many business leaders, and we understand how important it is to provide them with a secure environment for project information and processes. Achieving SAS 70 Type II certification and opening our trust site provide two strong and significant demonstrations of our ongoing commitment to provide the very best SaaS environment for our customers.”
