Options announces 10th consecutive year of compliance with AICPA Service Organisation Controls

Options, a provider of cloud-enabled managed services to the global capital markets, has announced compliance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) ISAE3402, SOC1, SOC2 and SOC3 standards.

In 2011, Options became one of the first cloud infrastructure providers to achieve SOC 2 Type II compliance and has continued to meet the latest AICPA’s examinations. Audit compliance attests that the Options Managed Platform met their latest standards of information security, data availability, and privacy.

Options CSO, John Gracey, says: “Companies today must prove to existing or prospective clients and regulators that they, and their partners, achieve the highest levels of security or risk seeing their business impacted. This is why so many leading financial institutions turn to Options, who are uniquely positioned to understand and deliver the specific requirements of the global Financial Sector. By achieving SOC1, SOC2 and SOC3 compliance for a 10th consecutive year, we have yet again demonstrated having all the technologies, capabilities, and skills necessary to help keep our clients safe, secure, and compliant.”

The examination was conducted by independent and fully accredited auditors over a period of weeks beginning in December 2020, who inspected operations and services delivered during the full 12 preceding months.
