Los Angeles, CA, August 2019 – Annex Cloud, an industry leading B2B and B2C loyalty solution provider for mid-market and enterprise level brands,
manufacturers, retailers and distributors, today announced that it has recently completed its Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) examination
under the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 18 (AT-C section 205, Examination Engagements) of the AICPA as of August, 2019 that was
performed by an independent auditing firm.
Completion of the SOC 2 Type 1 examination indicates that selected Annex Cloud processes, procedures and controls have been formally evaluated and tested by an independent accounting and auditing firm. The examination included the Company’s controls related to the 2017 Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy, of which we are now proudly certified in all five trust domains.
An SOC 2 examination is performed in accordance with AT-C section 205, Examination Engagements. SOC 2 is designated as an acceptable method for a user entity’s management to obtain assurance about service organization internal controls set forth in TSP section 100, 2017 Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy (AICPA, Trust Services Criteria) (applicable trust services criteria) without conducting additional assessments.
A SOC 2 examination is widely recognized, because it represents that a service organization has been through an evaluation of their control activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria. A Type 1 report addresses the service organization's system description and the effectiveness of the design of the service organization's controls.
“Annex Cloud takes information security very seriously and we are thrilled to meet the SOC 2 Type 1 compliance standard. One of the most important aspects of customer loyalty solutions is providing powerful protections for the data entrusted to us. With this SOC 2 Type 1 evaluation complete, customers, clients, partners, and investors can rest assured that we have strict controls in place for information security,” says, Jeff Herrera, Chief Marketing Officer.
