Rigorous Third-party Audit Validates Depth of Company’s Commitment to Digital Signage Security
April 21, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA – Enplug, a leading cloud-based digital signage software provider, today announced successful completion of its SOC 2 Type 2 audit. This concludes an intensive six-month audit by Coalfire, an independent cybersecurity firm, to objectively measure Enplug’s adherence to key trust factors of secure data processing and storage. Many digital signage vendors talk about the importance of security, yet Enplug is among the very few willing to submit to rigorous outside evaluation of those security claims. Achieving SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is widely regarded as one of the most comprehensive measures of a company’s commitment to securing customer data, and a key differentiator that sets Enplug apart from other digital signage CMS providers.
“Going through the exhaustive SOC 2 Type 2 audit process has been a worthwhile investment of our time to demonstrate our deep commitment to data security,” said Enplug CEO Nanxi Liu. “We’ve always prided ourselves on helping our customers build secure digital signage networks, and this latest milestone is further validation of our commitment.”
Why SOC 2 Type 2?
SOC 2 Type 1 and Type 2 audits are similar in what they measure, with the latter being more comprehensive. In Enplug’s case, the company was audited on security. What sets Type 2 apart from Type 1 is that Type 1 audits evaluate trust factors at a single point in time, whereas Type 2 audits assess performance against trust factors over a period of six months. Therefore, a Type 2 audit demonstrates the company’s ability to not only meet trust factors at a single point in time, but also adhere to them over a sustained period.
Why SOC 2 Compliance Matters
SOC 2 compliance is relevant to any business offering Cloud-based services. Compliance is particularly important to the digital signage industry as a growing number of signage networks are managed remotely. SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is not mandated for digital signage service providers, however Enplug chose to undergo the rigorous audit to underscore its deep commitment to the security of its digital signage platform.
