SOC 2 is a technical auditing process and certification defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) that ensures a service organization manages enterprise data in a controlled and audited environment in accordance with industry best practices. SOC 2 consists of a suite of reports produced during an audit focusing on controls grouped into five categories called Trust Service Principles (Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy). These reports are conducted by independent auditors who assess an organization’s data processing systems for availability, security, and integrity and evaluate if adequate protections and controls are in place.

This news comes in the wake of many recent initiatives and accomplishments of ATS, including:

  • The significant expansion of our first-in-class infrastructure performance monitoring solution, Galileo Suite, includes interactive 3D visualizations and controls to assess an IT environment and analyze its health quickly.
  • The addition of many strategic partnerships with industry-leading technology manufacturers, business partners, and enterprise customers.
  • The celebration of 20 years in business, delivering award-winning IT solutions to enterprises throughout the United States.

A Pattern of Excellence

Since day one, ATS has put the needs of our customers first, operating under the highest possible integrity. The successful completion of our SOC 2 certification demonstrates our commitment to safeguarding client data and system resources against unwanted access.

ATS worked with Mission Cybergroup to pass the SOC 2 Type 2 audit as part of the extensive and comprehensive auditing process. As a result, our accreditation allows us to strengthen our offerings and deliver enhanced solutions that help our clients grow.

Tim Conley, Principal, ATS Group, said: “We all know that people buy from people they know, like, and trust. But trust is established differently now in our data-driven world, and we have a responsibility to our customers. This is just one step that we have taken to reassure them that their valuable data is always safe and protected.”
