Unified Technologies received the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 certification to prove its ability to build and manage best-of-breed information technology systems.

FREMONT, CA: Unified Technologies has achieved the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 certification to prove its ability to build and manage best-of-breed information technology systems, networking, and data storage with a commitment to highly accessible service and security.

The evaluation of system and practices performed by Kaufman Rossin has verified that Unified Technologies regularly meets and exceeds the AICPA's Protection and Availability qualification pillars, which includes Security, Availability, Integrity of Processing, and Privacy.

The SOC 2 Type 2 certification by Unified reflects the effective Type 1 exam conducted in March 2019. The strict auditing of Type 2 requires assessing and reporting activities and practices developed in the past years. Observations from this audit have shown that the managed IT and security services of Unified Technologies have achieved the highest degree of core security and availability of services, essential for today's cloud computing environment.

In view of the rise in remote work and the increase in malicious cyberattacks, industry experts recognize the qualifications needed by SOC 2 Form 2 to be necessary for providers of the type of technology and security systems in which Unified Technologies specializes.

Gabriel Sanchez, Unified Technologies Director of Managed Services, said, "By strengthening our relationships with Cisco and other information technology industry leaders, we are able to ensure that our customers' networks, systems, and data storage maintain the level of secure performance necessary for the success of their businesses."

Regulation of SOC 2 Type 2 ensures that Unified Technologies clients have defined protocols and practices to avoid, track and address irregular device operation, authorized and unauthorized configuration changes, user access levels, and total secure functions of the systems and storage.

"At Unified Technologies, we realize and appreciate the advanced level of privacy and integrity that our customers require. We accomplish this by utilizing infrastructure that exceeds the needs of today and through our team of highly-skilled technology experts who maintain a fanatical commitment to handling the known as well as the unknown," said CharlMyburgh, Unified Technologies chief operating officer.
