Managed IT, cloud, and security services provider Secure-24 has completed Service Organization Control (SOC) evaluation. With head offices in Southfield, Michigan, United States, Secure-24 is an ISO/IEC 27001:2013-certified subsidiary of Japan’s NTT Communications. The company offers application hosting services and is an SAP-certified ‘Hosting, HANA and Cloud’ partner. The company also has partnerships with Microsoft (Silver) and Oracle (Gold). Its services include SAP hosting, disaster recovery services, and enterprise cloud services. The company was in the news recently for onboarding Michael BeDell as CEO. Secure-24 completed both SOC 2 and 3 evaluations.
Managed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), which produces compliance guidelines, SOC considers non-financial reporting controls as based on the ‘Trust Services Criteria’ which address issues of security, availability, and confidentiality. Achieving SOC 2 and 3 requires rigorous third-party audits of a company’s operations. AICPA refines the reporting criteria used in SOC reports on a regularly basis as requirements change against the ever shifting security backdrop.
“Information security is our highest priority and Secure-24 prides itself on establishing the highest quality standards for process improvement,” explained Secure-24’s Vice President of IT and Compliance, Jaclyn Miller. “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. 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.”
