Austin, Aug. 25, 2021 — Everyware, a leading contactless payments and customer engagement solutions company, announces it has successfully completed its System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II certification. Everyware partnered with Vanta for the completion of this audit. SOC 2 Type II compliance demonstrates Everyware’s ability to implement and execute strict and critical security policies that protect its clients and their customers’ data.
Achieving SOC 2 security compliance highlights Everyware’s operational excellence and emphasizes its ability and commitment to keeping sensitive client data safe. In addition to achieving this internationally recognized standard, Everyware is also PCI DSS compliant (Payment Card Industry and Data Security Standards) meaning it is certified for data security by the Payment Card Industry. Everyware has taken extra measures to protect merchants and their customers’ credit card information from being stolen. Additionally, the company’s HIPAA One certification was recently renewed securing Electronic Personal Health Information (ePHI) for its growing portfolio of healthcare clients and their patients.
“Protecting our sensitive integrated partner and customer information is a responsibility we don’t take lightly and a top priority at Everyware. SOC 2 compliance is considered the leading benchmark for data security and we’re proud to adhere to these standards,” said Everyware Founder and CEO Larry Talley. “Our security measures are extensive, including a fully encrypted authentication access method.”
Everyware’s official Vanta SOC 2 audit report provides a thorough review of its processes relating to risk management and subservice (vendor) due diligence, as well as the entire IT infrastructure, software development life cycle, change management, logical security, network security, physical and environmental security, and computer operations.
Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 is an auditing process that guarantees data is securely managed to protect the interests of the business and its customers. Certification means customer data is managed based on five trust service principles, and those are: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.
