SOC 2 Report Progress

We expect and rely on information security experts and engineers to keep up-to-date with the latest exploits or attacks, just as we expect compliance experts to maintain a high level of certainty in their controls and tests. It’s part of how we’re able to address the new technology threats and risks that appear on the horizon every day.

ServerCentral's 2016 SOC 2 audit is now available!

Throughout many years of managing audit tasks and compliance programs, the most arduous part has always been gathering the proper artifacts.

  • Did we get the screen shot of one system right?
  • Where did I put that report from our vendor?
  • Who’s seen the monthly vulnerability scan reports?

Well, today ServerCentral took a large step toward making that process easier for our customers by putting our SOC 2 report online in our customer portal!

5 Reasons You Should Care About Data Center Compliance

Day by day, businesses across the world are moving more of their operations to the cloud, relying heavily on cloud service providers to protect and secure their data from theft and loss. If they haven't dipped their toes in the big pool of cloud, maybe they've hired a managed services provider (MSP) to handle the day-to-day maintenance and availability of their systems and data or the monitoring of uptime and performance.

Regardless of the path chosen, the potential exposure and risk of business, data, and reputation loss is real. However, both of these paths also provide businesses a great deal of benefit, leading many to try and strike that perfect balance of risk vs. reward in their cloud strategy.

This is where data center compliance comes in.

My SOC is Better Than Your SOC

We’ve come a long way since the days of the SAS 70, which did little to actually test the security of a data center or managed service provider. Under a SAS 70, which was designed to test the integrity of financial reporting and not information security, an organization could make up their own set of rules to be audited against. An auditor, usually a CPA sanctioned by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), would "test" their client by looking for evidence that they followed each rule.

Compliance isn’t just a checkbox on a piece of paper to ServerCentral. From old hardware disposal to protecting vital assets and systems, security and compliance are at the core of everything we do for our clients. We first covered our commitment to compliance when Daniel Brosk, our COO, blogged about the changes the SSAE-16 SOC 1 brought from our older SAS 70 report. Today, we have another exciting new announcement about our commitment to security and compliance:

Not All SSAE 16 Reports Are Created Equal

The SSAE-16 SOC 1 report is considered to be the mark of a trustworthy technology service provider, but the reality is that every company’s SOC 1 report looks different.
