by Aware HQ, on 6/17/19 8:51 AM

At Aware, we consistently invest in security best practices to ensure that our customers’ data stays safe. Today, we’re proud to announce that we’ve successfully completed our SOC 2 Type 1 audit.

 “Our highest priority is to enable organizations to manage risk in their own collaboration environments,“said Greg Moran, COO, Aware. “Our recent certifications show our ongoing commitment to protecting our customers’ data so they can focus on the most important work for their businesses.”

What is SOC 2 Type 1 certification?

SOC 2 Type 1 certification is considered the gold standard for security compliance for software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies.

The certification validates that Aware's systems are designed to maintain confidentiality and integrity of all communications and our team is committed to high availability standards that ensure customers’ reliable, consistent product access. Both are accomplished through technical controls, policies and procedures.

The SOC 2 Type 1 audit required a written description of Aware’s security procedures, including protocols for storing, encrypting and protecting sensitive data.

We protect your data, so you can protect what’s most important: your employees and company.

Achieving SOC 2 Type 1 certification means that our internal software development processes and practices meet required levels of oversight and monitoring. Our team will complete the SOC 2 Type 2 audit in the coming months, which will further validate our controls and security framework.

“At the end of the day, your employees and your company are the most important things to your business. We know that customers around the globe trust us with employee communication data—and we take that responsibility incredibly seriously,” said Moran.
