Phoenix, AZ, February 9, 2024–PK Tech, a leading managed IT services and IT security solutions provider in the Greater Phoenix Area, announced today that it has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit, a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of its security and privacy controls.
The SOC 2 audit, conducted by the independent AICPA-accredited CPA firm Insight Assurance, examined PK Tech’s policies, procedures, systems, facilities, and personnel handling customer data. The audit evaluated PK Tech’s compliance with the Trust Services Criteria (TSC), a set of standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to measure the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a service organization.
PK Tech has shown its dedication to safeguarding its customers’ data and delivering the best service quality and reliability by completing the SOC 2 audit. PK Tech’s customers can trust that their data is managed safely and privately by PK Tech’s team of professionals, who have expertise in various IT domains and can solve any IT problem.
SOC 2 is considered one of the most rigorous audits that exist to date, which means that any business that has gone to the lengths of completing one is serious about security. It is also the most accepted report when conducting business with US-based enterprises.
Arizona has around a hundred Managed Service Providers, but less than ten percent get the SOC 2 accreditation every year. Most of the accredited providers are headquartered outside of Arizona, owned by private equity firms, and cater to large corporate clients.
PK Tech is a local company that focuses on helping small and medium businesses with 10-200 employees, which allows businesses to collaborate with a firm that has proven its security compliance, as compared to the typical IT vendors that lack any independent external validation of their security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and data privacy.
“Passing the SOC 2 Type II audit is a significant milestone for PK Tech and a testament to our dedication to excellence and continuous improvement. This achievement is in line with our goal to continue investing in our security and privacy practices to best serve our clients,” stated Jordan Hetrick, Founder and CEO of PK Tech.
