Cetrom Achieves Distinguished SOC 2 Type II Certification

Certification culminates year of growth and accomplishments for cloud service solutions provider

VIENNA, Va. – March 9, 2014 – Cetrom Information Technology, Inc. (Cetrom), an industry-leading provider of custom cloud solutions that transform the way SMBs succeed, announces it has completed the intensive audit regulations defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and is one of the first cloud solutions providers in the country to be awarded the Service Organization Control (SOC 2) Type II certification. This certification concludes a year of milestone accomplishments for Cetrom, including adding 20 new clients and expanding its Mt. Airy, Maryland satellite office, which will be used for training and ongoing education for its engineers.

To achieve the SOC 2 certification, Cetrom was required to complete security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy reports that demonstrate the company’s ability to meet or exceed industry standards to safeguard data. A rigorous process that reviews the entirety of organizational operations and personnel, the comprehensive audit, conducted by an independent third party, evaluates the design and efficacy of security controls and backup procedures. Compliance with AICPA’s process means the measures instituted by Cetrom are not only appropriate, but strictly maintained and enforced.

Christopher Stark, president and CEO, Cetrom, said, “We entered into the SOC 2 certification process because it is critical for current and potential clients to know their data is safe and secure. The physical, logical and methodological security measures that Cetrom has instituted over the years have been validated through this certification and confirmed as exemplary in the cloud computing field. Cetrom’s certification will give potential customers seeking a cloud solution a tangible measurement to evaluate us, while current clients can rest assured that their data resides with an organization that values their critical information and is compliant with pre-determined benchmarks of excellence.”

Cetrom’s new Mt. Airy office is three times larger than its previous Maryland location. The expanded space gives the company the ability to bring its local and remote employees together in a centralized training facility, and offers new employees a state-of-the-art environment to complete Cetrom’s comprehensive month-long training program.
