Ubiquity Retirement + Savings® (Ubiquity), a pioneer in flat-fee small business retirement plans, today announced the successful completion of its System and Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 audit.
The report, completed by leading public accounting firm Armanino, assessed the security, availability and confidentiality of Ubiquity’s proprietary recordkeeping system, Paradigm RKS(™). The platform earned its first SOC 1 Type 2 certification in 2017 assessing effective internal controls, processes and procedures.
“A SOC 2 audit report furthers our commitment to a secure and reliable recordkeeping experience for small business retirement plans and participants,” said Nasrin Mazooji, VP of Compliance + Regulatory Affairs at Ubiquity. “As we continue to support some of the industry’s most prominent brands through Paradigm, it is our duty to demonstrate the legitimacy of our technology and ensure the integrity of our clients’ data.”
Paradigm has served as Ubiquity’s internal recordkeeping system since 2016 and became available for broader institutional use through our BPO offering in September 2020.
“Ubiquity’s commitment to maintaining strong internal controls related to their recordkeeping system is commendable and will be a key differentiator for them in a challenging market environment,” said Liam Collins, Partner in charge of Armanino’s Risk Assurance & Advisory practice.
SOC 2 rigorously tests technology and financial services firms to ensure compliance with the Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ principles and criteria. Armanino is one of the top 25 accounting firms in the nation.
