Imprivata's cloud-based products achieve SOC 2 certification

Jan 15, 2018

Imprivata recently underwent an in-depth security audit by RSM, an international independent service auditor, to determine whether our cloud-based Imprivata Confirm ID and Imprivata Cortext products meet the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) criteria for SOC 2 Type 2 certification.

The result? Full SOC 2 attestation. Because SOC 2 is recognized worldwide as one of the strictest audit standards for service providers, this certification gives Imprivata cloud customers an independent verification of Imprivata products.

It’s worth noting that SOC 2 certification is not an industry-mandated requirement. Imprivata seeks out SOC 2 certification, however, to ensure that our products meet the highest standards for security, a distinction that we believe all service providers should strive to achieve for the safety of their customers. This means customers know they can rely on how we describe our system, as well as on the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of the controls to achieve related objectives using AICPA guidelines.

Founded in 1887, the AICPA represents the CPA profession nationally regarding rule-making and standard-setting, and serves as an advocate before legislative bodies, public interest groups and other professional organizations. The AICPA develops standards for audits of private companies and other services by CPAs; provides educational guidance materials to its members; develops and grades the Uniform CPA Examination; and monitors and enforces compliance with the profession’s technical and ethical standards.

With concerns over cyber-attacks and data breaches at an all-time high, Imprivata is proud to provide a safe, reliable, and secure platform for our healthcare customers – giving them one less thing to worry about.
