GREENBAY, Wis., August 1, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- CloudWave, an IT infrastructure, cloud services, and technology consulting services provider for healthcare organizations, has successfully completed Service Organization Controls (SOC) 1 Type 2 and SOC 2 Type 2 examinations, performed by Assure Professional - a leading cybersecurity, assurance and compliance solutions provider. CloudWave's financial transaction processing system is both SOC 1 Type 2 and SOC 2 Type 2 compliant, in accordance with the attestation standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

"We have had the opportunity to work with CloudWave for the past several years in evaluating their control environment as it relates to adherence to the SOC examination standard as published by the AICPA. Once again CloudWave has demonstrated their commitment to Security and Availability in their service offerings," said Juan Vargas, Assure Professional Senior IT Security Auditor.

  • SOC 1 Type 2 compliance is determined by tests and reports that prove the design and operating effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting.
  • SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is designed specifically for technology and cloud computing organizations and is based on Trust Service Principles: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.

To achieve compliance, CloudWave went through a rigorous examination process for a period of one year to verify the existence of implemented controls that affect the integrity of the system, as it processes client data, and protects the confidentiality and privacy of the information that is processed. The audit accounts for a data center's system and suitability of its design of controls as reported by the company as well as verification of the auditor's opinion on the operating effectiveness of the controls.

Mark Middleton, Vice President of Cloud Services at CloudWave, comments, "We're proud to have achieved SSAE 18 SOC 1 Type 2 and SOC 2 Type 2 compliance for the OpSus Healthcare Cloud.
