SAN MATEO, Calif., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beckon, the leader in marketing intelligence software, today announced it successfully completed the Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) Type II audit. The audit, conducted by an independent CPA firm, confirms that Beckon meets the stringent Trust Service Principles for security, availability and confidentiality criteria set out by the AICPA, which covers end-to-end data security practices, policies, procedures and operations. Going forward, regular third-party audits will affirm Beckon's commitment to enterprise-class information security.
As organizations increasingly partner with outside vendors to provide advanced data capabilities critical to their business, there is growing demand for standardization and transparency regarding the security protocols those vendors follow when handling corporate data. Beckon's SOC 2 Type II certification validates its promise to provide customers clear insight into its information security practices, and simultaneously sets a new benchmark for the marketing intelligence category.
"This is about the success of our customers," said Jochen Frey, CTO of Beckon. "They've always been able to trust us with their data, but giving them visibility into our standards and processes—and having an independent third party continually monitor and evaluate our controls—proves our commitment to security and instills a deep conviction in our customers that their data is safe. We are publically holding ourselves accountable to our customers.
"The SOC 2 audit requires us to look at all of Beckon—not just our software or our hosting provider. Yes, we back up our data daily in two physical locations and have a full audit trail for all data ingested into Beckon, but it's more than that. It's about our security mindset as a company for everything and anyone that touches the data we've been entrusted with."
