The Value of SOC 2 Certification

The Service Organization Controls (SOC) report is provided to a service organization after a thorough audit carried out by a reputable 3rd party according to the AICPA audit guidelines. CPAs are the premier providers for SOC engagements. ClearSlide has received its latest SOC 2 Type II report and certification, providing customers even more confidence in ClearSlide’s enterprise grade platform and reliability.

SOC 2 assures clients we use proven controls to protect their data. It audits the security, availability, and confidentiality used to protect ClearSlide customers.

The SOC 2 report reflects how the service organization delivers internal controls to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. It is a rigorous evaluation based on reviewing all process documentation, policies, and test results along with detailed onsite observation. In addition, the audit discusses and evaluates an organization’s integrity and ethical values, commitment to competence, management philosophy, and approach.

The audit controls cover:

-Software (systems, applications and utilities)
-People (developers, operations, users and management)
-Policies and Procedures

Security certifications are necessary validation points of a SaaS organizations commitment to security, privacy, and compliance. We encourage all of our customers to ask their providers about the controls and policies around security, privacy, and compliance. SaaS partners should be ready to discuss their documentation and process designed to protect the Security, Availability, Processing Integrity Confidentiality, and Privacy of its service as well as client data and information.

At ClearSlide, we consider certifications such as SOC 2 audit, as well as our certifications from TrustE and EU-US Privacy Shield, an integral part of the ClearSlide Sales Engagement Platform.
