A pioneer in providing engineering talent to IT service providers, IT By Design (ITBD) announced its successful completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 certification, which ensures compliance with the leading industry standards for managing enterprise data.

Validating the systems and controls designed by an organization to protect its user’s data is what System Organization Control (SOC2), as a technical auditing process, does.

Organizations need to establish rigorous security policies and procedures following AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) standards to stick to SOC2. Independent auditors are the ones who gather SOC2 reports and measures the availability, security, and integrity of an organization’s unique data processing systems that would ultimately determine whether adequate safeguards and controls are in place.

ITBD focused on supporting and providing solutions to the MSP channel since day one, prioritizing their MSP partners’ needs first. Thus, the successful completion of the SOC 2 certification lets ITBD continue strengthening its offering to the channel and provide an enhanced solution to help its partners grow.

ITBD collaborated with Tugboat Logic to pass the SOC 2 audit as part of a lengthy and thorough auditing procedure. ITBD’s SOC 2 certification demonstrates its commitment to safeguarding consumer data and device resources against unauthorized access.

Ray Kruck, CEO, Tugboat Logic, said: “Proving security compliance has become an essential component for companies to create trusted relationships with clients and scale growth. Tugboat Logic is pleased to be working with ITBD to help them pass the SOC 2 audit and ensure the quality of its information security posture.”

“Data security is critical in today’s business climate. We are taking the right steps to support our partners. ITBD’s successful completion of the SOC 2 Type 2 audit reassures our MSP partners that the systems and processes we have in place are of the highest possible integrity,” said Sunny Kaila, Founder and Global CEO of IT By Design.
