Matrix Applications, LLC (“Matrix”) has successfully completed a System and Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit. The audit was performed by Schellman & Company for its TradeBlazer Collateral Management System and Managed Services. This attestation demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to the highest standard of data protection and security.

Speaking on the achievement, Uday Kulkarni, Compliance Officer at Matrix Applications said, “Our SOC 2 compliance is a testament to our relentless commitment to data security. It highlights our dedication to safeguarding clients’ information with stringent controls. Our clients can rest assured that their data's confidentiality, integrity, and availability are paramount. Our team remains vigilant, ensuring compliance with the highest industry standards to protect our clients’ trust and privacy.”

Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 information security standard is an audit report on the examination of controls relevant to the trust services criteria categories covering security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. A SOC 2 Type II report describes a service organization’s systems and whether the controls they have in place to satisfy the SOC criteria are operating effectively over an agreed-upon observation period.

“We are committed to safeguarding the data of Matrix clients, especially given the increasingly critical role of information security in every aspect of our service delivery. Our diligence and forward-thinking approach will not stop here. Matrix will continue to proactively investigate and pursue new ways to upkeep our high security standards,” added Charles Corbin, Senior Systems Engineer at Matrix Applications.

The SOC 2 compliance audit and examination were done by a leading independent third-party auditing firm in accordance with the standards established by the AICPA. This report is a testament to the design and operating effectiveness of controls.

Emmaline Chen, Compliance Analyst at Matrix Applications adds, "Continuing this certification shows Matrix Application's consistent work to keep up with industry standards in data security. We have gained the trust of our clients and partners by taking precautions and maintaining data security as one of our top priorities." 21972-312_SOC_NonCPA_Blk
