Plante Moran and Universal Compute Exchange have announced a strategic alliance and service agreement. Most notably, Plante Moran will conduct third party audits for cloud service providers selling Workload Allocation Cube financial contracts on UCX.
Plante Moran will review existing SOC reports, perform security reviews with those organizations not having a SOC, verify the financial stability of the service providers, and certify locations of the providers. This will allow sellers to earn a Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) STAR Level II certification. All service providers will go through a rigorous due diligence process in order for transactions to take place on the UCX platform. No provider will be able to offer compute resource power on the exchange unless they have a STAR Level II certification.
