CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ETM is pleased to announce today that the company has become SOC 2 type 2 compliant for Wings, UPEnterprise, and UPExchange products through the AICPA. Founded in 2001 and having served nearly 50,000 companies, ETM is a web-application-development firm which specializes in providing clients with a range of services including statutory financial reporting, tax-compliance, and unclaimed property reporting services. Companies turn to ETM for the automation of their filing of financial information as well as assistance in meeting a range of regulated reporting requirements.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) created Service Organization Control 2 Type 2, or "SOC 2 Type 2," as standards governing how service providers protect client information. Many recognize SOC 2 as the worldwide standard for secure and confidential information handling.
ETM's SOC 2 Type 2 certification was finalized by a third party audit company. The audit took several months to complete and auditors reviewed hundreds of controls both on and offsite where they examined ETM's policies, procedures, and how ETM's applications were designed. Additionally, all ETM locations and data centers, as well as all applications were included as part of this comprehensive review.
CEO Layton Olson noted, "Being SOC 2 type 2 compliant serves to underscore ETM's ability to safeguard both the confidentiality and privacy of information stored in our environment. This is a fantastic accomplishment for our organization and serves to highlight just how effective we are in protecting our client data."
