Solvaria Achieves SOC-II Certification for Data Security
Solvaria’s Information Security Practices, Policies, and Procedures are Officially Approved to Meet the SOC-II Trust Principles Criteria
Richmond, Va., - Solvaria, Richmond’s only IT consultancy focused exclusively on database services and strategic IT leadership, is pleased to announce receipt of its Service Organization Control 2 Type II (SOC-II) attestation providing independent validation that the company’s internal security controls are in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria (TSPC).
The AICPA created the SOC guidelines to provide an authoritative benchmark for service organizations to demonstrate implementation of proper control procedures and practices. Type II reports include detailed testing of the operational effectiveness of the described systems’ security controls. BDO’s report of Solvaria evaluated the company’s data management services and systems, focusing on covering the security and availability principles. The criteria BDO analyzed included policies, communications, procedures and monitoring.
In today’s global economy, outsourcing core business operations to outside vendors is becoming more and more commonplace. Service providers must have sufficient controls and safeguards in place when hosting or processing customer data. With SOC II certification, customers can now be confident that Solvaria has the controls and auditing in place to maintain the security, availability, and confidentiality of their systems.
“Our SOC 2 Type II certification offers an added layer of protection for our clients,” said Greg Samuels, CEO at Solvaria. “We are proud to achieve this level of security and hope it serves as an indicator of our continuing pledge to develop strong, trusting, relationships with our partners and users.”
