BOSTON, MA, April 04, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Smart Software, Inc. announced today that the company completed its Service Organization Control for Service Organizations (SOC) Audit, delivering the highest level of data security and reliability.
“All of Smart Software’s services depend on a foundation of safe, secure, and private storage and transfer of information,” said Chief Technology Officer, Sreekumar Menon. “Trust and data security are table stakes now for any solution offering cloud based analytics, forecasting, demand modeling, and inventory planning. Since day 1 of our cloud journey, we’ve made considerable investments in order to ensure a secure and reliable environment for our customers. The completion of this audit validates these efforts.”
Companies completing the SOC 2 Type 1 audit have the option to be judged on one or more categories; Smart Software met or exceeded the industry-leading standard in all four categories listed below:
Security – Verifying the system is protected against unauthorized access, use, or modification to meet the entity’s commitments and system requirements.
Availability – Verifying the system is available for operation and use to meet the entity’s commitments and system requirements.
Processing Integrity – Verifying the system processing is complete, valid, accurate, timely, and authorized to meet the entity’s commitments and system requirements.
