San Jose, May 16, 2023 CDS Visual, a Dover company, has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type II Audit examination for the period of September 2022 to March 2023. SOC 2® engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) AT-C 205, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization and based on the trust service principles outlined in the AICPA Guide, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy.

The SOC 2® Type II report is performed by an independent auditing firm and is intended to provide an understanding of the service organization’s suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of its internal controls. Fortune 500 companies today largely require vendors to have Soc 2 Type II attestation. A service organization may select any or all the trust service principles applicable to their business and CDS Visual chose to report on security, availability, and confidentiality. The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates CDS Visual’s ongoing commitment to creating and maintaining a secure operating environment for their clients’ confidential data.

The audit included an examination of their policies and procedures regarding network connectivity, firewall configurations, systems development life cycle, computer operations, logical access, data transmission, backup and disaster recovery, and other critical operational areas of our business. Upon completion of the audit, CDS Visual received a Service Auditor’s Report with an unqualified opinion demonstrating that their policies, procedures, and infrastructure meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2® criteria.

“The successful completion of our SOC 2® Type II examination audit provides our clients with the assurance that the controls and safeguards we employ to protect and secure their data are in line with industry standards and best practices,” said John Major, General Manager, CDS Visual. “Achieving this certification is especially noteworthy in our industry and exemplifies how our entire company is committed to ensuring compliance and security.”

CDS Visual solutions complement its clients’ websites, CPQ and eCommerce solutions by enhancing, enriching and unifying their product content to increase conversions. CDS Mentor enables the transformation of existing CAD assets into immersive learning experiences. The self-service solution requires no expertise in coding or development and is usable on multiple devices – smartphones, tablets, PCs and soon mixed-reality headsets. In addition, users can upload their own CAD assets to create immersive 3D instructions with animations and interactive annotations. These can then be shared with the company’s internal workforce and customers for product installation and maintenance.

In addition to CDS Mentor, another unique offering from CDS Visual is Partable, which delivers a high-performance part search during the B2B aftermarket buying process. Users can identify, select, and purchase parts via interactive 3D models, 2D exploded view images, BOM navigation and serial number search.
