Independent Audit Verifies Entech’s Internal Controls and Processes
FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 11, 2022) – Entech, a leading Managed Technology & Cybersecurity Service Provider, today announced it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Entech has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its clients by demonstrating that they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
A SOC 2 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that a service organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA. During the audit, a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system are tested. The SOC 2 report delivered by KirkpatrickPrice verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of Entech’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“We pursued this designation because we are dead serious about data protection and committed to bringing that extra layer of expertise and peace of mind to our customers,” said Chris Brenes, Entech’s Chief Information Security Officer. “As one of the only SOC 2 Type II-compliant managed technology service providers in the region, we are eager to continue strengthening the security postures of small and mid-sized businesses throughout Southeast Florida.” Security and compliance are top of mind to Entech’s customers and the company continues to grow and invest in these areas with this latest accomplishment further cementing that commitment.
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Entech delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Entech’s controls.”
