Waident Successfully Completes AICPA SOC 2 Examination



I am pleased to announce that Waident successfully completed its SOC 2® (System and Organization Control 2) examination and received a report dated May 31, 2023.


SOC 2 is an important framework for assessing and reporting on the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls of a service organization. It is a critical attribute top companies expect when choosing an MSP—less than 5% of MSPs have been designated SOC 2.


Waident demonstrated its robust controls and practices in the following areas of SOC 2 evaluation set forth by the AICPA:


  • Security: Waident ensures that information and systems are protected against unauthorized access, disclosure, and damage, thereby safeguarding the availability, integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of critical data.
  • Availability: The company maintains a high level of system availability, ensuring that information and systems are accessible and operational to meet clients’ objectives without interruption or downtime.


By completing the SOC 2 examination, we strengthen our position as one of the top managed services providers in both Chicago and Milwaukee.  We can assure our clients that their data and systems are in safe hands.


I am proud of our team’s hard work in achieving this goal.  SOC 2 reflects Waident’s ethos of continuous improvement and high delivery standards. Most important, it provides our clients:


  • Enhanced trust and confidence: Clients can have peace of mind knowing that their data and systems are managed by an MSP that adheres to industry-leading security and availability controls.
  • Compliance readiness: SOC 2 compliance supports clients in meeting their regulatory requirements, providing a solid foundation for their own compliance efforts. 
  • Competitive advantage: By choosing a SOC 2-compliant MSP, clients gain a competitive edge in their respective markets, demonstrating their commitment to data protection and risk mitigation.
  • Improved operational efficiency: Our adherence to SOC 2 requirements drives internal process improvements, resulting in better risk management and overall operational efficiency.


The bottom line: With SOC 2, our clients can be confident that Waident is committed to keeping their people productive, their enterprise running, and their data safe.
