Fairfax Software, leading provider of business reengineering services to government agencies and companies throughout the United States and Canada, has successfully completed its System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2, Type 2 examination.

It reflects upon our prolific attention to security awareness and is a testimony to our long-standing tradition of implementing sound security principles in our projects and processes,” shares Steve Chahal, President & CEO of Fairfax Software.
“It also consolidates our position of trust when it comes to hosting and supporting mission-critical financial applications for government and industry."
More and more organizations are encouraged to complete their due diligence by verifying that their third-party vendors are maintaining data privacy in a secure and compliant manner. Companies such as Fairfax are making sure to undergo annual audits in order to acquire and retain clients.
“In our business, we typically are marketing to government clients who usually require bidders to have certain assessment frameworks, such as the SOC 2 report,” shares Michael Minter, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Fairfax Software. “More and more, reports like these are becoming an industry standard.”
Fairfax Software chose to strengthen their security posture by meeting rigorous compliance criteria as defined by the AICPA’s SOC 2 Type 2 framework in a mission to protect their client’s data.
Completion of the SOC 2 Type 2 examination is widely recognized for demonstrating an organization’s commitment to the AICPA Trust Services Criteria, including: Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy.
Companies that undergo annual SOC 2 examinations can demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operationally visibility than those companies who do not, offering Fairfax Software an edge over competitors.
For this reason, Fairfax Software has maintained SOC 2 compliance initiatives regularly since 2018.
