LAKE FOREST, Calif., June 8, 2016 - CyberRidge, the Nortridge Software division that manages hosted clients, announced the successful completion of a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit.

The SOC 2 report focuses on a business's non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system, as opposed to a SOC 1 report, which focuses on the financial reporting controls.

"Our commitment to industry leading standards and processes help to insure that our hosted clients can depend on the reliability, integrity and security of our platform," said Jeff Possehl, managing partner of CyberRidge and director of business development for Nortridge. "The audit is an affirmation of our dedication to our clients and their business."

The audit was conducted by SSAE 16 Professionals, LLP,in accordance with the AICPA SOC reporting standards. SSAE 16 Professionals evaluated CyberRidge/Nortridge's design and operating effectiveness of internal controls and processes related to the Security Trust Services Principle. The firm has found that Nortridge has met or exceeded the expectations and is fully compliant to the standard.

About SOC 2 Reports

A SOC 2report falls under the AICPA AT 101 guidelines and can also be either a Type I or a Type II. Whereas SSAE 16 (SOC 1) reports are used for audits of controls that impact a user organization’s internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR), SOC 2 reports are intended for service organizations whose services do not impact ICFR. The typical users of a SOC 2 report will include prospective clients of the service organization, management of the service organization, and independent auditors providing services to the user organizations. The SOC 2 audit covers operational and/or regulatory compliance controls and follows pre-defined Trust Services Principles and Criteria.
