Ivanti Completes SOC 2 Type II Certification
SALT LAKE CITY — Apr. 19, 2017 — Ivanti, a leader in integrating and automating critical IT tasks, today announced that it has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit for its world-class ITSM cloud offering. Conducted by Armanino, one of the top ten fastest-growing large accounting firms in the nation, this comprehensive audit and certification verifies Ivanti’s strong security protocol and validates the company as a leading cloud provider.
SOC 2 keeps a company’s information security measures in line with today’s specific cloud requirements. As companies increasingly use the cloud to store sensitive data, SOC 2 compliance is vital to organisations in a wide array of industries.
Ivanti is well-positioned in on-premise, cloud and hybrid ITSM delivery, and is continuing to produce forward-thinking, innovative cloud offerings. The SOC 2 Type II certification exhibits Ivanti’s ability to constantly mature its cloud delivery, a feat not all vendors have been able to demonstrate. The audit also certifies that Ivanti’s cloud security practices, policies and procedures meet SOC 2’s high standards for security, availability and confidentiality. As a one-stop-shop for companies in any industry seeking robust cloud capabilities, Ivanti achieved this certification using entirely its own cloud technologies.
“Primary barriers for companies to adopt the cloud are concerns surrounding security and data privacy,” said Tom Davis, CTO of Ivanti. “SOC 2 Type II certification helps assure our customers that, with Ivanti, their data is secured and with an established vendor who has implemented data privacy and security controls. Receiving this confirmation from an independent source further solidifies us as the leader in ITSM cloud delivery.”
SOC 2 certification is part of Ivanti’s multipronged cloud security plan. As a true SaaS company, Ivanti employs a cloud-first strategy, optimising all web design, leveraging secure data centers that are scalable and guaranteeing all its cloud offerings have high availability, full redundancy and are completely secured. This better cloud design provides companies with the ability to use Ivanti’s ITSM cloud solutions as part of their core business operations and strategy, with the added assurance that the cloud service is safe.
"We count on Ivanti to deliver secure and reliable ITSM services and ensure their integrity. By achieving the SOC2 compliance the team demonstrates its commitment to ensuring the security of our data," said Wendell Bobst, assistant vice president of information technology customer services at Adventist Health.
Specifically geared toward SaaS and other technology companies with a focus on security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy, the SOC 2 standard best meets the demands of the information security and SaaS marketplace. This extensive reporting standard provides independent validation that Ivanti’s internal control environment operates in accordance with the selected American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) trust services principles and criteria.
The SOC 2 certification comes at the same time that TRUSTe has certified HEAT Software USA Inc. privacy practices and statement for EU-US Privacy Shield. The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission to offer companies a way in which to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. HEAT Software USA Inc., a company that recently merged with LANDESK into Ivanti, is an active participant in the Privacy Shield list (https://www.privacyshield.gov/list). This certification further positions Ivanti as a global player in all things security.
