Block 64 Renews SOC 2 Type II Certification
Toronto, Ontario, October 31, 2022 — Block 64, a leading provider of discovery and analytics for IT Asset Management, Cybersecurity and Cloud Enablement, today announced that it has successfully renewed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II certification, one of the world’s most coveted and rigorous information security certifications. Through this designation, Block 64 has successfully demonstrated its ability to meet the very highest standards for maintaining the security, availability, integrity and confidentiality of customer data.
“The successful re-certification reflects our ongoing commitment to information security for our partners and customers,” said James Corless, Chief Operating Officer of Block 64. “The discipline required to meet and maintain these standards is critically important, not only to regulatory compliance-dependent organizations, but to every Block 64 partner and customer that requires certainty that their data is being handled with the utmost care.”
While the SOC 2 Type I certification demonstrates that an organization has designed robust internal controls, SOC 2 Type II goes significantly further than its predecessor. It requires applicants to prove through an external audit by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) that these controls have been tested repeatedly over time and are operating effectively. This auditing process involved evaluating Block 64’s security controls, monitoring processes, communications, risk management practices as well as the policies and procedures it uses for writing and releasing new software and updates to the market.
Block 64 successfully completed the implementation of Drata compliance automation and monitoring platform “With our additional investments in the Drata solution, Block 64’s internal controls and procedures are now actively monitored in real-time providing yet another level of assurance to our customers,” said Sean Ramsay, Vice President of IT.
Block 64’s hybrid IT asset management, cybersecurity and cloud enablement services are leveraged by hundreds of world-leading technology organizations, and thousands of their customers across the globe.
