IT By Design Successfully Completes SOC 2 Certification

Expanding ITBD’s NOC Services with SOC 2 Security and Compliance for the MSP Channel.

IT By Design, (ITBD), a market leader for providing engineering talent to IT service providers,  announced today its successful completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 certification, which ensures compliance with the leading industry standards for managing enterprise data.

System Organization Control (SOC2) is a technical auditing process used to validate the systems and controls designed by an organization to secure its customer data. To comply with SOC2, organizations must establish rigorous security policies and procedures in accordance with AICPA standards. SOC2 reports are conducted by independent auditors, who measure the availability, security, and integrity of an organization’s unique data processing systems, and ultimately determine whether effective safeguards and controls are in place.

ITBD has been focused on supporting and providing solutions to the MSP channel since day one, putting the needs of their MSP partners first. The successful completion of the SOC 2 certification allows ITBD to continue to strengthen their offering to the channel and deliver an enhanced solution to help their partners grow.

As part of the extensive and comprehensive auditing process, ITBD worked with Tugboat Logic to pass the SOC 2 audit. Earning the SOC 2 certification attests that ITBD is committed to protecting customer data and system resources against unauthorized access.

Ray Kruck, CEO, Tugboat Logic, said: “Proving security compliance has become an essential component for companies to create trusted relationships with clients and scale growth. Tugboat Logic is pleased to be working with ITBD to help them pass the SOC 2 audit and ensure the quality of its information security posture.”

“Data security is critical in today’s business climate. We are taking the right steps to support our partners. ITBD’s successful completion of the SOC 2 Type 2 audit reassures our MSP partners that the systems and processes we have in place are of the highest possible integrity,” said Sunny Kaila, CEO of IT By Design.
