Adding SOC 2 Type II to our well-established SSAE 16 Type II compliance is important for our legal clients who must feel their data is secure 24/7/365.
Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) March 16, 2016
doeLEGAL, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class law firm and legal department solutions announces its successful verification through the most rigorous security testing for both Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16 Type II and Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II. Unlike other testing such as ISO 27001 and SAS 70, these examinations include similar strict criteria, but require compliance over an extended period of time. The reports are prepared by an independent Certified Public Accountant, and help to build trust and confidence in their service delivery processes and controls. The successful completion of the SOC 2 Type II testing puts doeLEGAL in the position to take the lead in online service provider security – a top priority for legal and IT professional across the globe. doeLEGAL plans to add additional components of the SOC 2 Type II testing including Availability, Confidentiality, Process Integrity, and Privacy.
SSAE 16 Type II and SOC 2 Type II reports, often referred to as the highest levels of security, most commonly cover the design and effectiveness of controls for a 6 or 12-month period of activity, rather than a one-time “snapshot” certification test. SOC 1 typically reports only on design. A SOC 2 Type II report covers design and operational effectiveness, generally referred to as “Type II”. doeLEGAL has been SSAE 16 Type II compliant for the past 4 years and this SOC 2 Type II verification takes their commitment to client security to the next level.
“The SOC 2 Type II criteria to be verified include a wide spectrum of tests aimed at finding weak points in security. We are proud to have passed all tests in the 12-month cycle with no issues or concerns. Adding SOC 2 Type II to our well-established SSAE 16 Type II compliance is important for our legal clients who must feel their data is secure 24/7/365. It is a matter of trust which we take very seriously. It is another example of doeLEGAL’s commitment to delivering the highest value to our customers,” stated Zac Schindler, Director of IT at doeLEGAL.
“Continuing to advance our pledge to these elevated levels of security verification helps us demonstrate the importance we place on our clients’ peace of mind. doeLEGAL distinguishes itself, in a very competitive market, through our client-focused approach to business. We listen to our clients’ need for security and deliver the highest value in meeting these evolving needs.
