The report signifies that VaultLogix’s online backup services operational controls and security procedures have been thoroughly reviewed by an independent certified public accounting firm, and ensures the controls implemented there have been sufficiently designed and tested, specifically regarding the VaultLogix implementation of security and availability.
The SOC 2 Type II audit was performed by the independent certified public accounting firm Whittlesey & Hadley, P.C., covering both the VaultLogix Internet Vault Advantage and Internet Vault Classic online backup services, including the primary data centers for those services. Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SSAE 16 SOC 2 replaced the SAS 70 in 2011 as the officially recognized auditing standard for service organizations to demonstrate they have adequate controls and processes in place. A SOC 2 Type II examination demonstrates that an independent accounting and auditing firm has reviewed and examined an organization’s control objectives and activities, and tested those controls to ensure that they are operating effectively. At the conclusion of the examination, a formal report including the auditor’s opinion is issued to the examined organization.
