Zoho Completes Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) Report Under AT Section 101

Zoho today announced that it has recently completed its Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) examination under AT Section 101, Attest Engagements (AICPA, Professional Standards) for the period Feb. 1, 2014 through April 30, 2014. The examination was performed by an independent auditing firm.

Completion of the SOC 2 Type II examination indicates that selected Zoho processes, procedures and controls have been formally evaluated and tested by an independent accounting and auditing firm. The examination included the company’s controls related to the Trust Services Principles and Criteria of Security and Privacy.

“Data security and privacy are top priorities for Zoho,” said Raju Vegesna, evangelist at Zoho. “Completing our SOC 2 examination reaffirms that we are employing the highest level of security to keep user’s data safe and private.”

An SOC 2 examination is performed in accordance with AT Section 101, Attest Engagements (AICPA, Professional Standards). SOC 2 is designated as an acceptable method for a user entity’s management to obtain assurance about service organization internal controls over Security and Privacy without conducting additional assessments.

An SOC 2 examination is widely recognized because it represents that a service organization has been through an evaluation of their control activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria. A Type II report not only includes the service organization’s system description but also includes detailed testing of the design and operating effectiveness of the service organization's controls.
