Confirmit completes “System and Organization Controls” - SOC 2 Type II examination

At many companies, security may be taken for granted, but at Confirmit, our Security and Compliance team never rests. That’s why we are extremely pleased to be able to say that Confirmit has, once again, successfully completed a “System and Organization Controls” - SOC 2 Type II examination for our Confirmit Horizons SaaS and Cloud offerings. 

If you’re not familiar with this standard, in summary, it’s an audit performed by a third-party independent AICPA accredited firm. It validates Confirmit’s strong commitment to the security, confidentiality and availability of the Confirmit Horizons platform and related activities.

Conducted by Armanino, LLP, ranked #1 in “The Top 10 Fastest-Growing Firms” in the U.S., this examination was performed in accordance with strict SSAE 18 audit standards.

The globally-recognized SOC 2 Type II report provides Confirmit’s clients, teams and partners with assurance that we have implemented effective controls for the operation of the Confirmit Horizons platform. During the examination, independent auditors scrutinized our:

  • Policies and that teams are aware of them and implement them consistently
  • Technical controls are effective - always
  • Procedures and that they are effective and we follow them consistently
  • Documentation and it is accurate and updated regularly
  • Updates to all of the above are accurate and performed frequently

You’ve likely noticed the pattern in the list; they all center around “consistency”. There is a reason for that. All the best policies, procedures and documents in the world are useless if they’re only implemented every now and again. This means we have invested significant time and effort to make sure that we follow every process, every time, and every year since 2017, when we first gained SOC 2 compliance.

SOC2 Type II is one of the most stringent security standards available and achieving it is a testament to our global team’s commitment to ensuring that we provide the very best service to our clients. We also demand the best from our partners too, so Rackspace and Azure, our SaaS and Cloud hosting providers, are SOC2 Type II audited as well. It is safe to say that Confirmit provides one of the most well-documented and secure offerings in our industry.

Of course, at Confirmit, we never rest on our laurels. Technology is constantly changing, standards being revised, and threats evolving, so we never stand still, nor stop working to ensure we maintain our incredibly high levels of security.

As a Confirmit client, it means one thing. You can focus on building and running world-class Market Research, Customer Experience, and Employee Experience programs, while we focus on ensuring your data is safe and secure.
