Only 5% of MSPs worldwide have achieved SOC 2 compliance.


What does the certification process involve?

Along with being a Microsoft Gold Partner, Parachute is enrolled in and approved for Office 365 US Government Community Cloud (GCC) services for Cloud Solutions Providers (CSP). Attaining this accreditation allows us to partner with government contracts and sell and manage subscriptions designed for the unique needs of US government organizations to meet compliance and security standards.

Parachute successfully completed the following 3 phases of SOC 2 certification


Readiness Assessment

Parachute received third-party, best-practice guidance. Our team participated and contributed to the process. We documented all internal processes and procedures, as well as tools and systems. The Unified Certification Standard (UCS) for Cloud and Managed IT Service Providers verified that we met the following objectives:

  • Governance
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Confidentiality and Privacy
  • Change Management
  • Service Operations Management
  • Information Security
  • Data Management
  • Physical Security
  • Billing and Reporting
  • Corporate Health


The next step in the process was an audit of all processes and procedures, as well as tools and systems by a third-party verification organization. It was then confirmed that all requirements were in place.


Documentation and Official Report Creation

A 30+ page verification report was created documenting that Parachute is in compliance with the UCS. We then received a 50+ page SOC 2 report that we can provide to our clients. This was an important part of the process for us – transparency. We wanted to make sure that we would have a comprehensive report available to our current and future clients so that they feel comfortable with the viability and credibility of our services.
