Symplified Successfully Completes SOC 2 Audit
BOULDER, Colo., May 7, 2013 – Symplified, the leader in Identity as a Service (IDaaS) for the hybrid cloud, today announced it has successfully completed a Service Organization Controls Report (SOC) 2 audit. The comprehensive independent audit validates Symplified has the appropriate level of processes and controls in place to consistently deliver secure and reliable identity and access management (IAM) services.
SOC 2 is the auditing framework of record developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for cloud computing, Software-as-a-Service and other service-oriented technology companies to demonstrate the capabilities of their processes and controls. Independent auditors performed the more rigorous SOC 2 Type II audit for Symplified between October 1, 2012, and March 31, 2013.
To confirm Symplified meets the stringent standards set by AICPA, the auditors evaluated the company across AICPA’s trust principles. The company’s successful results demonstrate Symplified meets the security and availability needs of any enterprise-class organization seeking to manage risk while entrusting its identity infrastructure to an IAM provider.
“Organizations today face the challenge of securing and controlling a growing number of cloud-based and on-premises applications across the growing array of devices employees, customers, contractors and partners are using to access them,” said Darren Platt, Symplified CTO and co-founder. “We founded Symplified on the principle that identity is a critical aspect of enterprise security, and with the vision of simplifying access to Web and mobile applications by delivering the most secure, easiest to deploy, and easiest to manage IDaaS solution. Our successful completion of a SOC 2 audit validates our approach, as well as the investments we’ve made in our technology, infrastructure, processes and people.”
