Independent Audit Verifies Fixed Fee IT’s Internal Controls and Processes
Portland, Oregon – Fixed Fee IT, a Managed Service Provider, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit for the second year in a row, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Fixed Fee IT is continuously one of the few Portland MSPs that has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its clients by consistently demonstrating that they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
A SOC 2 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that a service organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA. During the audit, a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system are tested. The SOC 2 report verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of Fixed Fee IT’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
Larry Gray, CEO of Fixed Fee IT, notes that “this intensive and rigorous accomplishment proves that Fixed Fee IT is committed and focused on security, privacy, and availability. The completion of the SOC 2 Type II audit provides additional validation that Fixed Fee IT is a leader in our industry and the Portland Metro area, today and into the future.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Fixed Fee IT delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Fixed Fee IT’s controls.”
