Volico Data Centers is proud to announce the completion of the SOC 2 Type II audit for 2019. A-LIGN, an independent accounting, and auditing firm performed the audits and confirmed Volico’s compliance with these industry standards. The compliance reports assure that Volico Data Centers’ services are suitable for businesses and applications that require high security, availability, control, and data privacy.
Volico completed this independent audit, as part of its commitment to providing the highest quality of products and solutions for clients across a range of industries. Volico’s SOC 2, Type II reports not only confirm that Volico’s data center security and operational procedures have been tested and reviewed by an independent certified auditor, but they also confirm that our facilities’ controls and processes are designed to safeguard our customers’ equipment and data.
SOC 2 Type II reports are the most comprehensive certification within the Systems and Organization Controls protocol. By completing the certification, Volico has proven its systems are designed to keep sensitive data secure through rigorous examination and evaluation of controls regulating interaction with clients and client data.
The SOC 2 extends the reach of Volico’s previously completed SSAE 16 Type II (Statement of Standards for Attestation Engagements) and SAS 70 (Statement on Auditing Standards).
Service providers must demonstrate that they have adequate controls of data protection technologies and processes. The SOC 2 Type 2 report puts strict audit requirements in place and sets a high bar with a more meaningful audit standard than SAS70 or SSAE 16 SOC 1. The certification sets Volico apart from other traditional Managed IT firms in the growing cloud ecosystem.
Why is SOC 2 Type 2 certification is so important to our clients?
