Miami, Fla. “The World Economic Forum showed that cyberterrorism and ransomware attacks have increased by more than 400% over the past two years,” said Tony Silva, CEO of Unified Technologies. With this in mind, Unified Technologies has been keen to maintain its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 compliance as it meets or exceeds the requirements set by the AICPA.
Kaufman Rossin acted as the external auditor and evaluated United Technologies for security, availability, processing integrity and privacy to award the company SOC 2 Type 2 certification again.
“Regardless of whether system access or configuration changes are authorized or unauthorized, our teams are skilled and adept at analyzing and assessing potential risks to systems, networks and storage in real time and providing action plans when necessary,” said Unified Technologies vice president for Marketing, Andrew Duke.
In March 2019, United Technologies received its Type 1 certification. In order to be certified as SOC 2 Type 2, an assessment is carried out every year in which the documentation of the services carried out and systems used in the past year is examined and deepened.
Kaufman Rossin has certified that United Technologies will continue to provide users with the highest level of core security and services. These requirements are becoming a necessity for any market participant who wants to be recognized as a trusted source for protecting customer information and technology-enabled services.
Silva continued, “A robust and redundantly secure IT infrastructure is no longer a nice-to-have for businesses and government agencies. Without the right solutions and a service-oriented team of experts to continuously test, monitor and update systems, the question is not if a security breach will occur in an organization, but rather when.”
United Technologies’ industrial networking and connectivity and efficient data storage make things easier by providing trust, protection and an edge over the competition in the industry. “Unified Technologies employs industry-leading experts across multiple specializations who work alongside our customers’ in-house IT professionals to prepare for and prevent cybercriminals’ ever-evolving tricks of the trade to infiltrate secure systems,” Duke continued.
