Cetrom CPA Cloud Achieves Standard of Excellence with SOC 2 Type ll with HIPAA Certification

VIENNA, Va. – April 1, 2019 – Cetrom, an industry-leading provider of custom cloud hosting solutions for Accounting Firms, today announced it has completed the intensive Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type ll with HIPAA/HITECH audit. This compliance certifies, according to the standards defined by the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA), that Cetrom’s information security practices, policies and procedures meet the SOC 2 Type II standard principles for security, availability and confidentiality across it’s geographically disparate data centers.

With the growing cybersecurity threats and increasingly stringent compliance standards, it has become customary for firms of all sizes to require strict assurance certifications when working with outsourced experts. CPA firms do not have the time or expertise to analyze, maintain and evolve their own IT systems; including their infrastructure, data, applications, and more - which is why many CPA firms are turning to more trusted Cloud solution providers, like Cetrom.

To achieve the SOC 2 Type II 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 of Cetrom, said, “SOC 2 Type ll compliance is the standard when it comes to data security assurance certifications. It’s what all trusted Cloud providers should be doing to better protect their clients. When we set out years ago as one of the first Cloud providers to complete a SOC 2 Type II audit, we knew we were ahead of the curve when it came to industry standards. We’re continuously evaluating how we can take our security, availability and reliability to the next level when it comes to serving our clients. They are our #1 priority.”
