Unily secures SOC 2 certification
Unily today announced that it has successfully completed a Type 1 SOC 2 Service Organization Control (SOC 2) examination. The audit, conducted by Lindford & Company LLP, found that Unily meets the SOC 2 standards for Security, Availability and Confidentiality with zero exceptions listed.
SOC 2 reports are attestation reports that examine controls at a service organization relevant to the Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality and Privacy of a data providers operations. SOC 2 reports demonstrate a company’s ability to not only implement critical security policies but also prove compliance over an extended period of time. A clean SOC 2 report means companies can depend on Unily for secure, compliant hosting.
“Unily is happy to have obtained SOC 2 certification following a significant investment of resources and time into best practice policies and procedures in information security management,” said Sam Hassani, CTO, Unily. “As a leading SaaS provider, we realize the need to continuously improve our policies and procedures as they relate to data management and information security.”
Unily’s obtainment of SOC 2 certification builds on their achievement of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, an internationally recognized security standard that outlines specific requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS) within an organization, earlier in 2018.
“Our clients are the lifeblood of our business and it’s important that they have confidence in our ability to protect their data. We’re thrilled to be able to offer them tangible evidence of our continued commitment to adhering to both international and domestic standards in data management and information security,” said Hassani.
“Large-scale data breaches have become increasingly prevalent over the last year, so we’re especially proud of our ability to ensure our customers that their data is in good hands when they select Unily as a partner. Moving forward, Unily will continue its commitment to best practices and policies when it comes to managing customer data.”
