LOUIS, Missouri – March 18, 2019 – Engagedly announces the successful completion of their Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 Certification.
Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 certification is widely recognized as a gold standard for data security and requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures
The report provides assurance to customers that Engagedly adheres to these stringent, internationally recognized security standards. Engagedly’s Type 1 certification demonstrates their commitment to data security through the practices and procedures it follows for protecting against unauthorized access, maintaining the availability of its service, and protecting the confidential information of its customers.
“The successful completion of our annual SOC 2 Review is indicative of our continued commitment to security and confidentiality”, said Engagedly’s Chief Technology Officer Pankaj Singh. “As companies increasingly leverage outside vendors to perform activities that are core to their business, trust and transparency into service providers’ operations, processes, and results is crucial”.
Engagedly’s SOC 2 report provides verification of internal controls which have been designed and implemented to meet the requirements for the security principles set forth in the Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security. It provides a thorough review of how Engagedly’s internal controls affect the security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems it uses to process users’ data, and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems.
This independent validation of security controls is crucial for customers in highly regulated industries. SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Services Principles. SOC 2 service auditor reports focus on a Service Organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system.
