With Addition of SOC 2 Type II Certification Backupify is Now the Most Secure Enterprise Application in the Market
Cambridge, MA – February 25, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Backupify, the leading provider of cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery solutions for Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, today announced the company successfully completed a Service Organization Control Type II (SOC 2) audit. Administered by an independent audit firm, the SOC 2 report reviewing Backupify’s backup and recovery system concluded that controls were suitably designed to provide assurance that the applicable trust services criteria were in place. SOC 2 compliance ensures that Backupify is meeting comprehensive information security standards.
Backing up more than 1.5 petabytes of data, Backupify upholds the most stringent data security standards for thousands of customers. SOC 2 compliance is an essential security standard for enterprise organizations or companies in regulated industries and it’s quickly becoming part of the de facto security criteria for any company evaluating cloud applications. Audited against a Web Trust Standard, SOC 2 compliance means that companies implementing Backupify have additional protection and security for their data.
“Our customers trust Backupify with their critical data and in turn we hold ourselves to the highest security standards,” said Ben Thomas, Vice President of Security, Backupify. “There’s some industry confusion around SOC 1/SSAE 16 versus SOC 2 compliance and what it comes down to is that being SOC 2 compliant is crucial for any cloud service provider. For enterprise organizations evaluating cloud applications, SOC 2 compliance from the vendor they’re assessing should be mandatory.”
The SOC 2 Type II audit included a full assessment of Backupify’s infrastructure, software, people, procedures, and data. The successful completion of the SOC 2 Type II audit, can be added to Backupify’s comprehensive security policies and procedures which include:
Additionally, Backupify is a member of the Cloud Security Alliance, a non-profit committed to the advancement and education of cloud computing security.
According to an August 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. report, “Security’s Cloud Revolution is Upon Us” by Ed Ferrara and Andres Cser, “A perceived lack of security has been one of the more prominent reasons organizations cite for not adopting cloud services. However, this attitude is changing rapidly as cloud service providers (CSPs) begin to offer comprehensive security capabilities.”
“The goal of the IT team at Evernote is to enable a productive workplace, which means giving our employees confidence in all the tools and technologies that they use,” said Bil Castine, IT Director at Evernote. “We work with Backupify because of their focus on security and reliability in protecting our Google Apps data, which is critical to our IT infrastructure.”
