Winxnet Receives Favorable SOC 1 Audit

Winxnet completed its SOC 1 - SSAE 16 Type II Audit

December 28, 2016

PORTLAND, Maine - 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 numerous 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 is attained only by larger and more capable service organizations. This is a sought-after and widely recognized certification, particularly by regulated industries such as banking and finance.  It is an often a required test for 3rd party due diligence for service providers.

“I am extremely proud that our organization recently completed our second SOC-1-SSAE 16 Type II audit” said Judi Grassi, Winxnet’ Security and Compliance Officer. “This is a significant accomplishment and validates our controls and processes around finance, service delivery and security.”

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 rigorous audit to provide you with 3rd party independent verification of our practices and security protocols.
