“SOC 2 certification gives customers assurance their data is secured by predetermined benchmarks." Rob LaMagna-Reiter
Omaha, NB (PRWEB) February 08, 2016
First National Technology Solutions (FNTS) has been certified by Deloitte & Touche, LLP to be SOC 2 Type II compliant by the standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), announced Rob LaMagna-Reiter, director of Information Security. “Providing our customers with added peace of mind regarding the security and availability of their data demonstrates that we remain committed to giving them the confidence that their information is secure within a data center that has gone through a stringent and rigorous audit process,” he said.
SOC 2 Type II compliance is designed for the growing number of technology and cloud computing entities that have become prevalent in the world of service organizations. It incorporates five Trust Services Principles (TSP): security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. To be SOC 2-compliant, a hosted and managed services provider like FNTS must report to various principles related to its operations. FNTS successfully performed the SOC 2 Type II audit against security and availability, which means its systems are protected, both logically and physically, against unauthorized access and available for operation and use as committed or agreed to.
FNTS’ SOC 2 Type II report covers a variety of controls over the security and availability of its hosting services. “With our SOC 2, customers can rest assured that their data is secured by these predetermined benchmarks, all of which are critical to companies who need to meet regulatory and compliance standards,” said LaMagna-Reiter.
