Solvinity passes SOC 1 and SOC 2 audits with flying colours
Entire private cloud management platform meets the highest security requirements
Amsterdam, 10 February 2020 – Solvinity, the largest supplier of Secure Managed IT Services in the Netherlands, received both SOC 1 and SOC 2 assurance reports from KPMG for the entire management platform of the Solvinity private cloud in 2019. Thus Solvinity meets the strictest international audit requirements imposed in this field for all its customers.
The SOC 2 (Service Organisation Control) report not only focusses on the security level of the applied technology (data centres, equipment and networks), but also on software, processes and those making use of this technology. As is the case with SOC 1 (an audit aimed at secure financial reporting), SOC 2 was developed by AICPA, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The SOC reports are predominantly aimed at service organisations. They have stringent requirements for Solvinity’s security policy and procedures, and for the security, availability, processing, integrity and confidentiality of data within the infrastructure managed by Solvinity.
Martin Maas, Team Leader Security & Compliance at Solvinity, is particularly proud of what the positive SOC assurance reports state about Solvinity as a whole: “An SOC report requires a lot from an organisation. The KPMG auditors spent a number of days investigating our entire organisation to determine whether the more than 100 control points that we set up are actually being complied with. We supplied more than 1,200 documents, sent hundreds of e-mails… This is something that involves all departments. That the auditors, ultimately, only made a few minor recommendations confirms that security at Solvinity is supported by the entire organisation.”
Solvinity boasts various large customers within the government and financial services sector who have stringent requirements for the security of their data. In respect of these clients, the Solvinity Managed Infrastructure has been meeting the requirements set for SOC 1 and 2 for quite some time. Since last year, the same has applied to all our customers and the entire Solvinity management platform.
Maas: “This confirms in black and white to our customers that we do everything we can to offer our services in the most secure way possible. In addition, our customer teams are ready and waiting, when requested, to provide input on ways to lift the remaining IT landscapes of our customers to the security level that aligns best with their specific wishes, requirements and possibilities.”
Customers who require more information about the SOC assurance reports and additional security services offered by Solvinity can contact their customer teams if so desired.
