Datalliance Earns SOC 2 Accreditation
Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) Platform Services Provider Upgraded to SOC 2 Type II
Cincinnati, Ohio, August 10, 2016 – Datalliance, the leading independent provider of cloud-based Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and other collaborative replenishment platform services, announced today that its Service Organization Controls Report (SOC) 2 has been upgraded from a Type I to a Type II. The results of a comprehensive, independent audit validate that Datalliance had the appropriate level of processes and controls in place to consistently deliver secure and reliable services from its datacenter and demonstrated their use and effectiveness throughout the declared audit period.
"While our Type I SOC 2 allowed our customers to know we had the appropriate controls in place, upgrading to a Type II shows we continue to improve and operate under those controls at all times," said Aaron Spring, Datalliance Director of Operations. "Our customers depend on us to keep their systems secure and available, and upgrading our SOC 2 reinforces our commitment to doing that."
SOC 2 is the auditing framework developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for cloud computing, Software-as-a-Service, and other service-oriented technology companies to demonstrate the capabilities of their processes and controls. Independent auditors performed the SOC 2 Type II audit for Datalliance which was completed on June 27th, 2016.
To confirm Datalliance meets the stringent standards set by AICPA, the auditors evaluated the company across AICPA's trust principles. The company's successful results demonstrate Datalliance meets the security and availability needs of any organization seeking the types of services Datalliance provides.
