LEESBURG, VA. – February 9th, 2018 – PhishMe®, the leading provider of human phishing defense solutions, today announced it has successfully completed a Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type I examination across the PhishMe Simulator® and hosted PhishMe Triage™ product lines, which help organizations address the human sources of risk associated with phishing attacks.
Created for entities operating in the booming technology and cloud computing sector, SOC 2 compliance is an industry standard in data security compliance. In pursuit of this industry-leading certification, organizations undergo a rigorous analysis that can include the following trust services criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.
“Achieving this certification demonstrates our continued commitment and investment in larger compliance efforts to exceed enterprise standards and expectations with respect to data security,” said Aaron Higbee, CTO and co-founder of PhishMe.
Coalfire Controls, LLC, an independent CPA firm, conducted the audit of PhishMe Simulator and hosted PhishMe Triage product lines, testing the suitability of design of controls, with a focus on security, availability and confidentiality principles in line with strict criteria.
“In an ever-evolving market of cybersecurity offerings, it is essential that organizations are able to clearly demonstrate that their solution meets SOC 2 criteria, an industry standard in data security compliance,” notes Chris Beiro, Director, SOC Practice, Coalfire. “Coalfire examined PhishMe solutions and found that controls were suitably designed to meet the applicable trust services criteria.”
The purpose of SOC standards are to help provide confidence and peace of mind for organizations and their third-party partners. PhishMe earned the SOC 2 certification because it has sufficient policies and strategies that are designed to satisfactorily protect their customers’ data.
