Dataprise Completes MSP Verify Certification with SOC 2 Type 2 Audit

ROCKVILLE, MD (August 12, 2019) -

Dataprise today announced that it has successfully completed the MSPAlliance’s MSP Verify Program (MSPCV) certification and SOC 2 Type 2. 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. Dataprise’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 – 2016).

The MSPCV was the first of its kind created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. Every certification comes with a written report with the entire process documented, validated and signed by a 3rd party accounting firm. The MSPCV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.

"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 Dataprise as a member of this elite community of cloud and MSPs.”

MSP Verify Program

The UCS consists of 10 control objectives and underlying controls that constitute crucial building blocks of a successful managed services (and cloud computing) practice. Once the provider’s organization has completed all MSPCV documentation on all applicable control objectives (with the assistance of MSPAlliance's readiness assessments, gap analysis, helpful templates and consulting) the results are then examined by an independent third-party accounting firm for verification and signing of a public facing report.

As with any other substantive certification of this type, the MSPCV certification must be renewed annually. The MSPCV was the first certification created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. The MSPCV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.

Customers who select a company that is part of the MSPCV can also rest assured that their IT solution provider has met and exceeded the following standards dealing with:

  • Objective 1: Governance,
  • Objective 2: Policies and Procedures,
  • Objective 3: Confidentiality and Privacy,
  • Objective 4: Change Management,
  • Objective 5: Service Operations Management,
  • Objective 6: Information Security,
  • Objective 7: Data Management,
  • Objective 8: Physical Security,
  • Objective 9: Billing and Reporting, and
  • Objective 10: Corporate Health.
  • The MSPCV certification report is signed by a third-party accounting firm.

    “We are very proud to announce our completion of the SOC 2 Type 2 audit,” stated Will Hartmann, Manager of Cloud Services at Dataprise. “With this certification our clients can confirm we are going above and beyond the expectations surrounding our managed services and customer service. Dataprise is committed to helping every client become a more effective organization through technology and this certification is a testament to that.”
