CAKE’s Data Security Policies and Controls Validated by Independent Auditor
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – January 30, 2018 – Accelerize and its digital marketing software division CAKE today announced that the company has successfully completed its Type 1 Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Compliance audit. Based on reporting principles developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Type 1 SOC 2 Compliance provides a framework for organizations to document, obtain independent validation of and publish their information security policies and procedures.
In order to pass the Type 1 SOC 2 audit, CAKE upgraded its infrastructure and data control policies to ensure that they adhere to AICPA’s SOC 2 guidelines for security, system availability, processing integrity, as well as data confidentiality and privacy. The audit required a written description of CAKE’s security procedures, including protocols for storing, encrypting, sharing and protecting sensitive data. CAKE also needed to commit to a regular security check on its infrastructure, have recovery plans in place in the event of a server crash, and verify that all systems are protected from unauthorized access.
“CAKE’s commitment to security, performance and product innovation has earned the loyalty of advertisers, agencies and performance marketing providers worldwide,” said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. “As a company, we have always taken great care to ensure that our clients’ data is safe and that our enterprise-grade platform is dependable and secure. With this SOC 2 Compliance report, we are pleased to also provide independent verification that CAKE has a clear set of policies and procedures in place to safeguard our customers’ data, plus the infrastructure and applications that help power their businesses.”
