ASHEVILLE, N.C., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Total Uptime®, the Application Availability Platform, today announced completion of the Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 audit highlighting the company's commitment to security, availability and confidentiality. The certification further validates the resiliency and operational excellence of Total Uptime's global cloud platform.
"Our customers include multinational Fortune 500 companies with offices around the world. They rely on us to increase their availability online in order to minimize risk and maintain compliance with laws, regulations and internal policies. This attestation is validation of our platform and our security practices," said Zoie Thompson, Co-Founder at Total Uptime.
Completion of the SOC 2 Type 2 examination is widely recognized as proof that a service organization has been through an evaluation of their control activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria. The SOC 2 Type 2, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is the most widely recognized authoritative guidance that provides service organizations a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls related to their services.
Companies completing an annual SOC 2 examination demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operationally visibility than those companies who do not, because it sets a high bar with a more meaningful audit standard than SSAE 16 (SOC 1).
Since being founded, availability has been at the core of Total Uptime's mission, but security and privacy are equally important. The company has built a solid management foundation through adoption of the widely recognized and respected ISO/IEC 27001 standard for their information security management systems.
