August 01, 2023

Underscores company’s commitment to meeting stringent security standards and safeguarding customer data

VANCOUVER, British Columbia and SAN JOSE, Calif. — August 1, 2023 — Absolute Software™, the only provider of intelligent, self-healing security solutions, today announced that it has successfully completed the System and Organization Controls (SOC 2) Type 2 audit for its globally-available Absolute Secure Access cloud service and the SOC 2 Type 1 audit for its US-based Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment for Absolute Secure Endpoint.

A widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts (AICPA), SOC 2 defines criteria for managing customer data based on five trust service principles: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. SOC 2 compliance confirms that Absolute’s platform controls and processes meet AICPA's Trust Services Criteria, verified through an independent audit. Completing this rigorous evaluation process demonstrates a company's ability to both implement critical security policies (Type 1 audit) and prove compliance over an extended period (Type 2 audit).

"Our top priority at Absolute is serving as a trusted partner and solution provider to our customers,” said John Herrema, EVP of Product and Strategy at Absolute. “Achieving these important milestones for Absolute Secure Access and Secure Endpoint signifies our commitment to meeting and maintaining the highest data security standards and validates that we have implemented robust security controls and processes backed by industry-leading certifications.”
