Enplug today announced successful completion of its SOC 2 Type 2 audit. This concludes an intensive six-month audit by Coalfire, an independent cybersecurity firm, to objectively measure Enplug’s adherence to key trust factors of secure data processing and storage. Many digital signage vendors talk about the importance of security, yet Enplug is among the very few willing to submit to rigorous outside evaluation of those security claims. Achieving SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is widely regarded as one of the most comprehensive measures of a company’s commitment to securing customer data, and a key differentiator that sets Enplug apart from other digital signage CMS providers.
SOC 2 Type 1 and Type 2 audits are similar in what they measure, with the latter being more comprehensive. In Enplug’s case, the company was audited on security. What sets Type 2 apart from Type 1 is that Type 1 audits evaluate trust factors at a single point in time, whereas Type 2 audits assess performance against trust factors over a period of six months. Therefore, a Type 2 audit demonstrates the company’s ability to not only meet trust factors at a single point in time, but also adhere to them over a sustained period.
SOC 2 compliance is relevant to any business offering Cloud-based services. Compliance is particularly important to the digital signage industry as a growing number of signage networks are managed remotely. SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is not mandated for digital signage service providers, however Enplug chose to undergo the rigorous audit to underscore its deep commitment to the security of its digital signage platform.
Enplug is here.
