In its ongoing commitment to privacy and security, Gillware Data Recovery announced today that it has completed its 2013 SOC 2 Type II audit and meets the required professional and accounting standards.

“At Gillware, we take security very seriously,” said Scott Holewinski, President of Gillware Data Recovery. “We handle a lot of sensitive information every day and make it our priority to keep that data safe on every level throughout the entire data recovery process.”

Service Organization Controls or SOC 2 reports are based on five principles that a service organization must adhere to: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. Gillware has put controls in place in order to guarantee both physical and logical facility security, system availability, comprehensive processing, full confidentiality and complete privacy for its customers.

“The safety of our customers’ data is integrated into all of our business processes,” said Danielle Petta, Gillware’s Security Audit Coordinator. “All Gillware employees are pre-screened and trained in our security, privacy and confidentiality controls. Our network is properly protected and our facilities are fully secure.”

Amidst recent news of data breaches at major retailers and security vulnerabilities on other websites, Gillware ensures that its systems are properly protected and defended from external threats.

“Gillware uses state-of-the-art technology to keep unauthorized personnel from gaining access to our facilities, our hardware and our networks,” Holewinski said. “The auditing process was rigorous, and Gillware performed outstandingly, meaning customers can rest assured their data is in good hands.”

About Gillware Data Recovery:

Founded in Madison, Wisconsin in 2003, Gillware has been a pioneer in the data recovery industry. Unlike competitors that charge thousands to recover lost data from failed hard drives, Gillware recovers data at a fraction of the cost of competitors’ pricing. Gillware was one of the first to offer a “no data, no charge” policy, meaning we evaluate your drive for free, provide a firm price quote and only charge if the data you want is recovered.

An industry leader in data recovery for hard drives, solid state drives, NAS devices, RAIDs, SD cards, USB thumb drives and more, Gillware has an ISO-5 certified, Class 100 clean room and is SOC-2 audited and GSA certified. Gillware is also the recommended data recovery lab for leading technology companies such as Western Digital and Dell. Additionally, Gillware is also the only data recovery lab to also offer online backup services.

About SOC 2 Type II Audits:

The Service Organization Controls or SOC 2 audit is a report on controls at a service organization relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality or privacy. These reports can form an important part of stakeholders’ oversight of the organization, vendor management program, internal corporate governance and risk management processes, and regulatory oversight. Type II audits include a report on management’s description of a service organization’s system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls.
