Teamwork Commerce Becomes SOC 2 Compliant

Teamwork Commerce, global retail management software, has today announced that it has attained SOC 2 Type 1 compliance for all Teamwork Commerce Premier Edition customers. The accreditation serves as a benchmark for a company’s ability to safeguard its clients’ data.

SSAE (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements) No. 21 System and Service Organization Controls (SOC) is a set of standards developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The compliance audits are performed by an independent third-party service auditor. SOC 2 compliance is a rigorous process that involves a comprehensive evaluation and testing of a company’s policies, procedures, and safeguards related to data security, availability, and confidentiality.

Teamwork Commerce customers are already benefiting from the comprehensive security measures implemented during the compliance process. SOC 2 compliance proves that a company adheres to best practices concerning data security, availability, and confidentiality and that it represents these practices fairly. SOC 2 compliance is an indication that a company prioritizes data security and has implemented appropriate safeguards.
