Independent Audit Verifies Innovative Architects’ Internal Controls and Processes

Duluth, GA – Innovative Architects, a SaaS provider, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type I audit. This attestation provides evidence that Innovative Architects has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.

SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria. SOC 2 audit reports focus on a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. KirkpatrickPrice’s audit report verifies the suitability of the design of Innovative Architects’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“We are extremely excited to announce this positive report of attestation through KirkpatrickPrice. This audit further supports our dedication to excellence and consistently providing top-notch levels of service and processes for our customers,” states Scott McMichael, President of Innovative Architects. “Our greatest value is to be trusted advisors to our customers and help them further their goals and successes.”

“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Innovative Architects has selected the security and confidentiality categories for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Innovative Architects delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Innovative Architects’ controls.”
