By successfully completing the Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 attestation, e-SignLive by Silanis demonstrates its ability to enable organizations to move their mission-critical processes safely to the cloud.
(MONTREAL) – March 26, 2015 – e-SignLive™ by Silanis, the e-signature choice for business, today announced that it has successfully completed its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 attestation without exception. As organizations increasingly move their customer-facing business processes to the cloud and have more stringent data security requirements, SOC 2 compliant service providers have a leg up in keeping critical business data safe and secure. As the final step in the SOC 2 process, completing a Type 2 attestation requires that a company sustain the controls put in place for at least six months, and doing so without exception demonstrates the highest level of service maturity and cloud security.
SOC 2 is the only acceptable standard to attest to cloud security that currently exists for service organizations and is important at a time when data breaches and cloud security can come into question for organizations using cloud services to manage sensitive client data. Knowing that an organization has taken the time and made the investment required to go through a SOC 2 Type 2 attestation demonstrates a strong commitment to security. Having successfully completed this attestation gives e-SignLive customers the peace of mind that the e-signature service is secure and properly protected against a variety of threats, including unauthorized access, thanks to the strictest of controls.
While other attestation engagements such as ISO 27001 and SSAE 16/SOC 1 focus on internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR), SOC 2 focuses more on technology and measures security controls across a company’s technological and operational environments, using criteria around security policies, physical and logical access, system monitoring, encryption, as well as vulnerability management. This initiative demonstrates that all controls required to meet SOC 2 control objectives are in place, putting the system and company in the ranks of organizations including Google, Amazon Web Services and Salesforce.
“Regulated industries in particular are grappling with security concerns related to putting customer data in the cloud,” said Tommy Petrogiannis, CEO of e-SignLive by Silanis. “As the only SOC 2 compliant e-signature provider in the market, we eliminate these concerns and make it easy for businesses to transact securely in the cloud.”
Trusted by some of the most security-conscious organizations in the world, e-SignLive is in use across financial services, insurance and government organizations alike, including eight of the top 20 banks, eight of the top 15 insurance companies in North America, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and the entire U.S. Army.
