We know that clients who use our cloud hosting, data center operations, systems management, and backup and recovery services are entrusting their confidential data to us. We strive to consistently maintain the highest security controls to protect that information through the SOC 1 Type 2 annual audit.
For the past 10 years, RPE has been conducting compliance audits with extremely positive results. Successfully completing the 2021 SOC 1 Type 2 examination means we once again have the highest standards required to ensure the handling and security of sensitive data for our clients.
Although a compliance audit is not required at a data center, we want our clients to feel confident in the security of our services. That’s why we take the extra step of completing this vigorous examination. The effort reflects our long-standing commitment to secure internal controls.
Before selecting a data center, many organizations request proof of compliance showing that a SOC 1 Type 2 compliance audit has been completed and passed. To RPE, the process is not just a competitive differentiator – it’s a way to provide clients with a higher level of service. RPE is often called upon to supply a copy of the data security/compliance report as a condition of doing business. We gladly supply the audit report as this has contributed to RPE securing new business, leading to several long-term client partnerships.
The examination was completed by the professional and independent third-party audit firm, 360 Advanced, Inc. 360 Advanced stays up to date on all compliance standards, data security rules and regulations, and uses this expertise to guide and assist companies like RPE to meet the highest standards.
