Tribridge Concerto Cloud Services Announces Successful Completion of SOC 2/SOC 3 (Service Organization Control) Examinations - Achieves Independent Assurance of Cloud Security and Availability

Published: March 04, 2014

TAMPA, Fla. (March 4, 2014) – Tribridge, a technology services firm specializing in business applications and cloud solutions, today announced that Tribridge Concerto Cloud Services has successfully achieved SOC 2/SOC 3 (Service Organization Control) reports following comprehensive examinations conducted by an independent CPA firm in affiliation with the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accounts).

SOC 2/SOC 3 reports offer customers, business partners, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders assurance that Concerto Cloud Services’ technology, systems and controls provide the Trust Service Principles established by the AICPA required for evaluation:

  • Security – The system is protected against unauthorized access (both physical and logical).
  • Availability – The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed.

The SOC 2 Type 1 report follows Concerto Cloud Services’ achievement of the SOC 1 (SSAE 16) examination, which focuses on the strength of an organization’s data center. Unlike a SOC 2 Type 1 report, a SOC 3 examination must occur over a period of time to demonstrate consistency of practice and process. The independent evaluation of Concerto Cloud Services took place between September 2013 and February 2014.

“We are pleased to earn the coveted SOC 2/SOC 3 reports and believe this third-party assurance of Concerto Cloud Services’ policies and processes underscores the high security and availability of our systems as well as our dedication to protecting customer data,” said Greg Pierce, vice president of Concerto Cloud Services. “We are committed to performing the examination in future years to ensure the seamless continuation of our cloud operations and services.”
