Peachtree Corners, GA, April 22, 2016 – Business Software, Inc. (BSI), a leading provider of payroll onboarding, tax calculation and filing solutions in the cloud, announced it has successfully participated in a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 audit. The completion of this audit verifies that BSI’s information security practices, policies, procedures and operations meet the SOC 2 standards for security.

“Completing a SOC 2 Type 2 audit demonstrates our ongoing commitment to security and underscores the investment we’ve made to keep customers’ data and our systems safe,” said Russell Rindik, Vice President of Operations for BSI. “We strive to sustain the highest level of internal controls and compliance standards.”

The Importance of SOC 2 Type 2

Service providers must demonstrate adequate ongoing controls of data protection technologies and processes. The SOC 2 Type 2 report provides strict audit requirements and sets a high bar for a more meaningful audit standard. The same audit report used by other top software service providers, SOC 2 verifies the security of infrastructures and services and is considered an industry standard.

“The certification sets BSI apart from competitors in the growing cloud ecosystem. Our customers can be assured that the highest level of internal controls and security are established and maintained,” elaborated Rindik.

About SOC 2 Type 2
The Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 audit is performed in accordance with AT 101 and based upon the Trust Services Principles.
