Chicago, IL July 8, 2020 – NowSecure, the leading mobile app security and privacy software company, announced today that NowSecure has achieved SOC 2 Security Certification – the industry benchmark for independent auditing of security controls for software vendors. NowSecure is the first and only mobile application security testing vendor to achieve SOC 2 Security Certification.

As defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 reports “are designed to help service organizations build trust and confidence in the service performed and controls related to the services through a report by an independent CPA.” NowSecure completed a SOC 2 Type 2 audit for the Security Criteria, which reviews the effectiveness of the controls related to the objectives.

“With many of the world’s most security-conscious companies as clients, NowSecure takes our responsibility to protect the security of our customers and their data very seriously,” said NowSecure CEO Alan Snyder. “SOC 2 Type 2 Certification of our software platform is the best independent validation of our commitment and sets NowSecure apart from less secure competitors.”

The NowSecure SOC 2 evaluation and report (conducted by a leading certification authority that has conducted thousands of reviews) contains a detailed system description including the purpose, architecture, people, and security controls. The security controls have met the criteria established by the AICPA in design and operation with no exceptions noted.
