CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quick Base, the platform for app-enabled business, today announced that it successfully completed a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 examination for the fifth consecutive year, as well as a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) attestation examination for the first time. The successful completion of this independent audit is part of the company's ongoing commitment to upholding the highest level of security and compliance for its 6,000 customers and partners.
"As a leading platform for creating business apps, customer data security remains our top priority," said Mike Lemire, compliance and information security officer, Quick Base. "We've built security into every aspect of our platform and continue to put the necessary controls in place to mitigate risks and maintain the highest levels of security and availability."
The successful SOC 2 and HIPAA examinations attest to the company's stringent security standards, particularly important for enterprises — which make up more than 70 percent of its customer base1— and users in regulated industries such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals and finance.
"As we grow our user base among larger and more highly regulated organizations, governance and security are becoming an even larger part of our overall strategy," said Rick Willett, chairman and CEO, Quick Base. "By adding HIPAA compliance to our SOC 2 report this year, we are providing further assurance for our customers and prospects in the healthcare space."
The SOC 2 examination confirms that the service provider meets the security and availability controls as defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Trust Principles. The additional HIPAA attestation verifies the adherence of relevant administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect electronic protected health information (e-PHI).
The examination was conducted by Barr Assurance & Advisory, Inc. and the report is available upon request.
