Winter Haven, Fla. (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Protected Trust has successfully completed two critical independent audits of its system controls. The company earned stellar results on the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16 Service Organization Controls (SOC) 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 audits as published by the American Institute of CPAs.
“By voluntarily seeking independent verification of our system controls through these audits, our clients understand how trust is an ongoing process of our relationship, and that we are committed to the protection of their data,” said CEO Ingram Leedy. “These audits reaffirm Protected Trust’s commitment to providing world-class products, services, and accountability to our clients.”
Auditors of Protected Trust clients can use the SOC 1 (SSAE 16) Type 2 audit report (formerly SAS 70) to plan and perform audits of clients’ financial statements.
The SOC 2 Type 2 audit report addresses the security and availability of Protected Trust systems and gives clients’ management, regulators, business partners, and suppliers information and assurance about Protected Trust controls.
Based in Winter Haven, Protected Trust provides cloud-based products and services to keep digital information assets secure, private and compliant. While the company lets organizations securely communicate electronic information via simple user experiences today, it also prepares for the emerging digital security needs of tomorrow by monitoring the ever-evolving legal and regulatory landscapes to ensure ongoing compliance for its clients.
