ComplianceQuest Announces Successful Completion of SOC 2 Type I Audit Certification and Mapping to ISO 27001 Requirements
Certification validates ComplianceQuest's comprehensive security practices for protecting customer data
TAMPA, Fla., March 24, 2020 (Newswire.com) - ComplianceQuest, makers of a modern, 100% native, Salesforce-based Enterprise Quality Management System (EQMS), announced today it has successfully completed its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 certification. In addition, ComplianceQuest has successfully completed the mapping of the internal controls to align with ISO 27001 requirements.
ComplianceQuest retained A-lign, an internationally recognized firm and one of the only companies in the world that is a licensed CPA firm, Qualified Security Assessor Company (QSAC), accredited ISO 27001, ISO 22301 and ISO 9001 certification body, certified HITRUST Assessor firm, and accredited FedRAMP 3PAO for its SOC 2® audit work. The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates ComplianceQuest’s ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for its clients’ confidential data.
As companies increasingly use cloud vendors to perform activities that are core to their business operations and strategy, there is need for more trust and transparency into their operations, processes, and results.
ComplianceQuest’s SOC 2 report verifies the existence of internal controls that 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 ComplianceQuest’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.
“Keeping our customers’ data safe and secure is our highest priority,” said Prashanth Rajendran, CEO of ComplianceQuest. “Our aim is to enable teams to work together effortlessly, and our recent certification shows our ongoing commitment to protect our customers' data so they can focus on the most important work for their businesses.”
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. By achieving Type 1 certification, an independent third party has validated the design of ComplianceQuest’s controls relevant to security, availability, and confidentiality. ComplianceQuest 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.
