ProStar Geocorp, provider of Precision Mapping Solutions„¢, announced today that the company has formally achieved Type 2 and 3 Service Organization Control (SOC) compliance. The Moore Group conducted the audit finding that ProStar Geocorp meets or exceeds SOC standards for Security, Availability and Confidentiality Trust Services Principles.
Our highest priority is keeping our customers information and important data safe and secure, said Vasa Dasan, Chief Operating Officer, ProStar Geocorp. Achieving SOC certification means weve met a required level of standard for processes and practices across our entire organization. Our certified compliance is a proven symbol of our ongoing commitment to the security of our clients data so they can focus on the important task of growing and maintaining their businesses.
Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SOC certification is critical to service organizations and is recognized as a gold standard for data security. SOC 2 is an auditing procedure that ensures your service providers securely manage your data to protect the interests of your organization and the privacy of its clients. For security-conscious businesses, SOC 2 compliance is considered a minimal requirement for a Software as a Service provider.
Security incidents in the news are becoming daily occurrences, stated Carl Lashua, former CIO of HSBC Canada and Europe and VP of Admin Services at ProStar. Customers need to be confident in our ability to manage security threats and ensure their confidential information will be safe in the cloud. I believe that achieving SOC compliance sends a clear message in terms of the integrity of our system design and our dedication to protecting client data.
