Secure-24 Successfully Completes Fall SOC Evaluation
Adopts AICPA’s New Trust Criteria Ahead of Schedule
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – December 18, 2018 – Secure-24, an NTT Communications Company, and a leading global provider of comprehensive managed cloud services, IT operations, applications hosting, and managed security services, today announced the successful completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 & 3 evaluation in compliance with the newest American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) guidelines.
With fluid regulatory landscapes and increased demand for transparency into controls and processes, the AICPA continually refines the reporting criteria used in SOC reports. In April 2017, the organization updated the Trust Services Principles and Criteria (now the 2017 Trust Services Criteria) impacting the controls required to be included with SOC 2 and 3 reports. Secure-24 has adopted the new Trust Services Criteria earlier than December 15, 2018 as required by the AICPA.
“Information security is our highest priority and Secure-24 prides itself on establishing the highest quality standards for process improvement. We are pleased that our SOC 1, SOC 2 and SOC 3 Reports affirm that Secure-24 has implemented the highest controls to mitigate risk,” said Jaclyn Miller, Vice President of IT and Compliance at Secure-24. “The reports provide clients with third-party verification that our operations meet process and control requirements relevant to user entity financial statements and also meet internationally recognized standards.”
Issued by Ernst & Young LLP, global accredited and independent accountants, SOC 2 and SOC 3 compliance confirms that Secure-24 has controls in place to ensure the security, availability, processing integrity and confidentiality of its managed cloud services. Secure-24 is among the first to issue a SOC 3 Report to clients regarding its compliance to the new AICPA Trust Services Criteria.
The AICPA Trust Services Criteria aligns the SOC 2 and SOC 3 control requirements to COSO 2013 Internal Control – Integrated Framework. A SOC 3 compliance report is designed to meet the needs of existing or potential customers who need assurance about the effectiveness of controls at a service organization that are relevant to the security, availability or processing integrity of the system used by the service organization to process a customers’ information or the confidentiality or privacy of that information.
