Type II reports include detailed testing of the operational effectiveness of the described systems’ security controls. The ConnectSolutions report, prepared by the auditing firm Armanino LLP, evaluated the company’s Commercial Cloud services and systems, focusing on covering the security and availability principles. The criteria they analyzed included policies, communications, procedures and monitoring.
