At a time when data security is a priority for every organization, Ancero has received an important stamp of approval that will give its customers peace of mind that their sensitive information is being protected to the highest industry standard.
The System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II certification, issued by independent CPA firm The Moore Group, confirms that Ancero meets the strict information security and privacy standards for the handling of customer data established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The certification pertains to all of Ancero’s facilities, business processes, and cloud services.
"Trust is a primary concern among companies working with IT and telecom providers, and this provides customers with an enhanced layer of trust and confidence, said Ancero Managing Partner Robert Hogg. "The successful completion of the SOC 2 Type II audit confirms that Ancero is committed to maintaining stringent and effective operating controls and processes for the security and availability of our operations and the handling of customer data."
SOC 2 Type II reports are the most comprehensive certification within the Systems and Organization Controls protocol. A company that achieves this certification has proven its systems are designed to keep its clients' sensitive data secure. When it comes to working with the cloud and related IT services, such performance and reliability is increasingly required by regulators, examiners, and auditors, and SOC 2 Type II is the most useful certification in the view of many businesses when considering a service provider's credentials.
A service organization can choose to be evaluated by any or all of the trust service principles provided by the AICPA; Ancero chose to be reviewed on service and availability.
"Since its inception, Ancero has been dedicated to continued growth and adaptation, ensuring our clients are safe, secure and always up to date with the rapid changes in IT," said Anthony Haynes, Ancero operations manager.
