Action1 Corporation joins the ranks of pioneering patch management solution providers by achieving the prestigious SOC 2 Type II Compliance. This achievement underscores the company’s unwavering commitment to prioritizing security measures and ensuring the utmost protection for its customers’ environments.
Action1 Corporation, a leading provider of a risk-based patch management platform tailored for work-from-anywhere enterprises, proudly declares its accomplishment in attaining System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 and ISO/IEC 27001:2022 compliance. This achievement comes after undergoing a rigorous independent audit process, solidifying Action1’s commitment to maintaining the highest information security and reliability standards. The announcement was made on July 13, 2023, and distributed via PRNewswire.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has established SOC 2 Type II compliance as the industry standard for evaluating the cybersecurity practices of cloud service providers, reflecting their overall security hygiene. The Type II audit thoroughly examines a company’s security practices over a specific period, with auditors assessing adherence to the program by analyzing data samples throughout that timeframe. Due to its stringent requirements, the Type II audit refers to the gold standard for internal security within organizations. While SOC 2 compliance is voluntary, Action1 has emerged as one of the pioneering patch management vendors to embrace and comply with this distinguished standard.
In addition, Action1 Corporation reinforces its dedication to security by acquiring the ISO 27001:2022 certification, a widely accepted standard for information security management systems (ISMS) worldwide. By achieving compliance with ISO/IEC 27001, Action1 Corporation exemplifies its implementation of a robust system for managing the risks associated with data security, adhering to the best practices and principles outlined in this global standard. This certification demonstrates Action1’s reaffirmation of protecting data and mitigating risks throughout the operations.
Alex Vovk, CEO and co-founder of Action1 Corporation said, “These globally recognized certifications affirm Action1’s commitment to strong information security practices and showcase our unwavering focus on embedding cybersecurity into the very fabric of our company.”
