Infinite Blue, a leading provider of business continuity/disaster recovery planning (BC/DR) and response management software, has successfully achieved SOC 2 Type 2 Certification for its award-winning flagship application, BC in the Cloud.
BC in the Cloud helps companies with a commitment to organizational resiliency by providing an intuitive, full featured product with shared data, automated workflows, reporting and embedded mass notification. It is further enhanced with our Advisory services. This product has the flexibility to meet the unique needs of customers and their level of BC/DR maturity. BC in the Cloud is built on Infinite Blue’s low-code platform allowing for greater product flexibility and quick implementation of enhancements.
“We are proud that BC in the Cloud has become one of the first business continuity software platforms to achieve this certification,” said Frank Shultz, Chairman and CEO of Infinite Blue. “Since our inception, we have been committed to protecting our customer’s data and this certification further demonstrates our commitment to transparency and governance related to the controls we have put in place.”
SOC (Service Organizational Control) 2 compliance implies that third party auditors have verified that BC in the Cloud is following best practices with respect to the design and operating effectiveness of its controls related to security, availability, and processing integrity.
Fundamentally, SOC 2 is an audit of a company’s technical capabilities, and its ability to ensure that data is secure, available, and held in confidence. The controls for ensuring these outcomes must be documented and tested by an independent third party. To receive certification, the company needs to demonstrate that it has effective controls and procedures in place to meet strict audit standards.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) created the SOC 2 compliance program as a means of improving the reporting by service organizations. While there are three types of SOC compliance, SOC 2 is designed for Cloud and SaaS organizations. Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. conducted the audit for the time period November 1, 2020 – April 30, 2021.
