RPE Successfully Completes SOC 1 Type 2 Examination and Why This is Important

SOC 1 Type 2 Examination

RPE, a provider of cloud hosting, data center operations, systems management, and backup and recovery services has successfully completed the 2020 SOC 1 Type 2 examination. The effort reflects our long-standing commitment to secure internal controls.

RPE has been conducting compliance audits for more than a decade, with extremely positive results. Although a compliance audit is not required, 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.

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 ensure the secure handling of their data. RPE has had several prospective clients request a data security/compliance report as a condition of doing business.

Our SOC 1 Type 2 standing has contributed to RPE securing new business, leading to several long-term client partnerships. To RPE, the process is not just a competitive differentiator – it’s a way to provide clients with a higher level of service.

We know that clients who use our cloud hosting and systems management services are entrusting their confidential data to us, and we strive to consistently maintain the highest security controls to protect that information through this annual audit.

RPE’s SOC 1 Type 2 examination focuses on internal controls over financial reporting, assessed over a period of time. 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.
