Viafoura, the leading digital experience company for global media organizations, is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 audit and achieved SOC 2 Type 1 certification.
“As a SaaS company, we take our customers’ data security very seriously,” says Mark Zohar, President and COO of Viafoura. “Obtaining SOC 2 certification is a testament to Viafoura’s commitment to the security, integrity and availability of our platform. It also ensures that our customers will receive the highest level of security, trust and compliance.”
A SOC 2 Type 1 audit looks at all the controls and processes within a SaaS or cloud vendor’s ecosystems that manage customer information, and makes sure they meet the five trust principles of data. These trust principles are security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.
The SOC 2 audit is technical and strict, measuring the process a SaaS or cloud vendor employs to monitor unusual activity, and how they’re equipped to respond with corrective action.
“SOC2 compliance assures our customers and prospects that we have taken all the steps necessary to protect and safeguard their data,” Zohar says. “Our mission as a company is to create civil and brand-safe online communities that engage and activate digital audiences. This mission cannot be achieved without a strong investment in and commitment to data security and compliance.”
