Certification reaffirms commitment to security of customer data

“SOC for Service Organizations reports assess service providers’ security controls and their ability to meet vendor-management requirements,” said Arto Vahvanen, director of product management, M-Files.

M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced it has received SOC 3 certification, which confirms it is in compliance with the Trust Services Criteria of security, availability and confidentiality developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

Prepared by independent CPAs, the report verified that M-Files security controls help provide assurance to customers that the company achieved both its service commitments and system requirements in accordance with the AICPA’s criteria for keeping clients’ data safe, confidential and available in the cloud.

SOC 3 reports are attestations that confirm compliance to the same criteria-- the SSAE 18 standard, specifically sections AT-C 105 and 205 -- governed by the AICPA. The examination, which covered the period from April 1, 2019 to October 31, 2019, established that M-Files met the accounting body’s rigorous trust-services standards both in fulfilling its service obligations to clients and
establishing requirements for the system it used to meet those obligations, including technologies and internal procedures.

“SOC for Service Organizations reports assess service providers’ security controls and their ability to meet vendor-management requirements,” said Arto Vahvanen, director of product management, M-Files. “It is one of more than a dozen compliance standards that our products and services adhere to.”
The auditors’ findings in the SOC 3 report largely mirrored those of a similar attestation, the SOC 2 report, which M-Files received in December.
