SEPT 6, Springfield, MO - Intuitive Web Solutions (IWS), creators of BriteCore, recently completed an annual SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Type II examination for the period of June 1, 2015 through May 31, 2016. During this period, BriteCore defined Control Objectives were achieved with zero exceptions found on the design and operating effectiveness of controls.

In the spring of 2016, IWS engaged Barr Assurance & Advisory, Inc. based on their technical competence and reputation in the industry. IWS initially worked with the firm to complete a GAP analysis prior to the SOC 1 examination period to determine that the defined Control Objectives and Control Activities were consistent with the needs of BriteCore clients and BriteCore clients' auditors.

Completion of the SOC 1 Type 2 examination demonstrates IWS' commitment to safeguarding client data through proper design and execution of controls. The scope of the recent examination included data security, logical access, client data backup, change management, and issue resolution management. Through IWS's SOC 1 examination, the accounting and consulting firm has tested the defined Control Activities to determine that controls are in place to secure client data.

BriteCore client Kent Johnson from Eastern Mutual comments, "This report demonstrates IWS’s commitment to policy and is important to our board of directors and regulators."

Art Meadows from Panhandle Farmers Mutual Insurance Company also shows his appreciation of the investment made by IWS in a statement he provided, "Congratulations to BriteCore on the zero exceptions for the SSAE 16 Type II examination. This is tremendous news for the clients and a great accomplishment for team BriteCore. Panhandle has been with BriteCore from the beginning, and we have the greatest respect and confidence in BriteCore and the fantastic software that it has developed into. We are proud to be a partner of such a great organization."

IWS continues to be under examination by Barr Assurance & Advisory, Inc. and periodically tests controls throughout the twelve-month examination period. If you or your auditors would like to receive a copy of IWS' SOC report, contact Chastin Reynolds at A bridge or gap letter may also be provided during the examination period, if needed.
