NEW YORK, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud9 Technologies, a cloud-based voice trading communication and analytics platform for financial firms and institutional traders, has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II certification. Cloud9 is the only trader voice communication provider to hold both the SOC 2 and ISO 27001 security certifications, demonstrating their commitment to information security and protection of user data.
SOC 2, a certification established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), evaluates companies on their Trust Services Principles and Criteria, including security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of their data management systems. It has become an industry standard for cloud-based technology companies and is the same standard held by Amazon Web Services and Google that validates the security of their infrastructure.
Cloud9 underwent in-depth assessment by a third-party auditor to confirm compliance with this standard. The process requires comprehensive, written documentation of information security policies and procedures in addition to a technology examination that proves a company's ability to maintain these standards over time.
Since their founding, security has been top priority for Cloud9. Their robust framework includes end-to-end security that safeguards calls, recordings, and call data in transit and at rest. Achieving both the SOC 2 and ISO 27001 certifications provides independent validation regarding the company's ability to protect the calls, voice recordings, call data, and business information that users entrust to Cloud9.
"The SOC 2 certification sets Cloud9 apart and establishes us as the leader in information security for the trader voice market," said Cloud9 Technologies Chief Technology Officer, Leo Papadopoulos. "Following our recent ISO 27001 certification, this reinforces our ongoing dedication to security, confidentiality, and privacy in regards to our data. Our users can be confident that that we are providing them the highest levels of protection for their most sensitive data and communications."
