Independent Audit Verifies XPERTECHS’s Internal Controls and Processes

Ellicott City, MD – XPERTECHS, a managed IT services provider, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type I audit. This attestation provides evidence that XPERTECHS has a strong commitment to delivering high-quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
