Kimble Applications today announces its completion in November 2015 of Service Organization Control (SOC) Type I reports under the SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 standards in an independent audit conducted by top audit and accountancy firm Kingston Smith LLP.
“Professional services organizations (PSOs) are rightfully mindful of the security of their – and their clients’ – data,” says Sean Hoban, CEO of Kimble Applications. “Kimble’s whole purpose is to help PSOs to adopt and sustain industry best practice continuously and in real time, so it’s important to us that we hold true to the same ideal."
“Successfully meeting these globally recognized standards demonstrates our continuing commitment to our customers, both present and future,” he continues. “It means they can have confidence in the transparency we provide, and that they can trust Kimble to support them in meeting their own corporate governance demands.”
Kingston Smith’s audit states that controls are designed effectively to suitably address key potential risks to Kimble’s services operations. It also attests to the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of those controls, based on the control objectives defined by Kimble.
About the SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 standards:
The Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) that sets guidelines for auditors to use in order to objectively assess the internal controls of PSOs.
The International Standard for Assurance Engagements (ISAE) No. 3402 is the standard by which a PSO attests it has undergone an independent, in-depth audit of its internal controls. It is issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), which is part of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).
Together both standards represent a demanding internal control system suited to the management of the risks inherent to cloud-based services.
