Recently, Winxnet has successfully completed its second SOC 1 - SSAE 16 Type II audit conducted by a certified independent auditor.  
Formerly known as a SAS 70, this audit confirms that Winxnet has the right technical controls in place to keep your data safe while providing consistent service.  This includes organizational, communication and management practices, risk management controls, monitoring of our security program, strong physical access controls as well as strong system and change management operations.

The SOC 1 is a comprehensive audit administered by a qualified CPA firm that evaluates many aspects of the service organization’s controls, with significant accent on security. The process of acquiring the certification is complex and involved, and most often can be attained only by larger and more capable service organizations. This is a sought-after and widely recognized certification, frequently used by regulated industries such as banking and finance, as a required test for 3rd party due diligence for service providers.

As a trusted and committed IT partner, we realize that your organization entrusts us with access to your most important information, which is why we conduct this regular audit to provide you with 3rd party independent verification of our practices and security protocols.
