Echosec Systems Formalizes Robust Customer Security Controls Through Recent SOC 2sm Report


Victoria, B.C. Canada - May 18, 2021 – Today Echosec Systems announced the successful completion of a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2SM examination. The resulting report, provided by BARR Advisory, P.A., confirmed Echosec Systems’ effective security and confidentiality management of its software solutions.

A SOC 2SM report is designed to assure existing and potential customers who require service providers with a gold standard in system security, information processing, and privacy, and customer confidentiality.

The internal control report enables customers to reliably evaluate and address any risks associated with a third-party service provider—a must for any organization outsourcing SaaS products that store their data.
