Locknet Managed IT has successfully completed the MSPAlliance’s MSP Verify Program (MSPCV) certification and SOC 2 Type 2 audit. The MSPCV is based on the 10 control objectives of the Unified Certification Standard for Cloud & MSPs (UCS) and is the oldest certification program for cloud computing and managed services providers. Locknet’s SOC 2 Type 2 audit was based on the UCS as well as the Trust Services Criteria for Security and the Additional Criteria for Availability and Confidentiality (TSP section 100A – 2017).
These audits come with four written reports with the entire process documented, validated, and signed by a third-party accounting firm. The MSPCV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted on five continents around the world. Only 2% of managed service providers globally have these reports.
"The MSPCV certification is a rigorous certification process that benchmarks and verifies the quality of the company providing cloud and/or managed services,” said Charles Weaver, MSPAlliance CEO. "We are very proud to have Locknet Managed IT as a member of this elite community of cloud and MSPs.”
