nCircle Demonstrates Continued Commitment to Security, Announces SOC 2-Compliant Cloud Products

nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management, today announced the successful completion of a Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 (also known as SOC 2 Type II) audit. The resulting report evaluates the security, availability and confidentiality of nCircle’s cloud products, including nCircle Benchmark and nCircle PureCloud™. nCircle is among the first cloud security service vendors to undergo a SOC 2 audit.

Following the phase out of SAS 70, customers and stakeholders with valuable data now look to SOC 2 reports to evaluate and assess the risks associated with an outsourced service. To pass a SOC 2 audit, an independent auditor must first test system design and operational procedures. The independent auditor validates that controls and processes operate effectively to safeguard customers’ confidential information.

“Meeting stringent SOC 2 audit criteria is part of our ongoing commitment to guaranteeing security, availability, integrity and confidentiality of information to every nCircle customer,” said Andrew Storms, director of security operations for nCircle. “Security has been integral to the DNA of every nCircle product for over ten years. We wanted to go above and beyond regulatory requirements, and that’s why we decided to undertake the rigorous scrutiny of a SOC 2 audit.”

The SOC 2 principles and related controls have been developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) for use by practitioners in the performance of trust services engagements. These principles are:

  • Security: The systems are protected against unauthorized physical and logical access
  • Availability: The systems are available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
  • Processing integrity: System processing is complete, accurate, timely and authorized.
  • Confidentiality: Information designated as confidential is protected as committed or agreed.
  • Privacy: Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed and destroyed in conformity with the commitments in the privacy notice and with criteria set forth in generally accepted privacy principles issued by the AICPA.

For more information about nCircle’s security and privacy practices, please visit the nCircle Trust Center.
