Provision Data Systems Inc Achieves AT 101 SOC 2 Type 2 Certification
Kelowna, BC – Provision Data Systems Inc (PDSI) is pleased to announce it has completed the year long process to obtain the Certification AT 101 SOC 2 Type 2 for its datacenter and managed services operations.
“As our customer’s requirements grow and change, we are committed to ensuring our platforms meet or exceed industry standards,” Ian McLaughlin, PDSI’s Chief Security Officer (CSO). “The SOC 2 Type 2 opens the way for more opportunities with governments and public companies, allowing us to expand our services to new markets.”
The SOC 2 certification is designed for advanced service providers. These can include managed service providers (MSPs), data centers, cloud computing vendors, and SaaS companies. This certification reflects the commitment to the quality and integrity of PDSI’s products and processes and speaks to the security and availability of the organizations products and infrastructure.
“This certification was a major undertaking for us,” said Ian McLaughlin, PDSI’s Chief Security Officer (CSO). “Today, more than ever, security and availability are fundamentals that our customers need and expect. The SOC 2 Type 2 solidifies our commitment and gives our customers extra confidence in our operations.”
Provision Data underwent one of the more stringent and complex audit programs available on an international level. The AT 101 SOC 2 Type 2 audit reviewed both the Security and Availability Trust Service Criteria. PDSI selected Ascend Audit & Advisory, Inc. to perform the audit.
“With the advent of the SOC 2 standard, Provision Data was required to undergo two forms of testing for each scoped directive,” said Daniel Geiger, Partner, Ascend Audit & Advisory, Inc. “They were also required to successfully demonstrate that testing performed was repeatable for the entire audit period under the new standard, and management was required to formally assert that the findings and information supplied to the auditor were true and accurate.”
