SOC 2 Type 2 and Information Security

Your Business. Secure.


Understanding SOC 2 Type 2

Service organization control (SOC) 2 is an auditing procedure designed to ensure that a third-party service organization can securely manage data to protect the interests and privacy of its clients. Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), it sets criteria for managing customer data based on trust service principles.

To complete a SOC 2 Type 2 audit, Locknet undergoes a thorough examination by independent auditors of our internal controls relating to these principles. As a part of this review, our auditors also test the operating effectiveness of these controls over a 12-month period.


EO Johnson and Locknet Managed IT completed MSPAlliance’s MSP Verify Program (MSPCV) certification and SOC 2 Type 2 audit. The MSPCV was the first of its kind created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. 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. Our cyber verify certification is level 3 - the highest level available.
