Accruent announced that its Meridian Cloud engineering document management (EDM) solution has been certified as Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II compliant by Dutch auditor Noordbeek BV. Meridian Cloud received a SOC 2 Type II assurance report after detailed customer audits of its organizational controls related to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Trust Services Criteria.
A Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 audit is an audit of an organization’s reporting controls as they relate security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. As ever-increasing amounts of critical information being stored in the cloud and being shared via the internet, software providers must put significant effort into helping their users keep that information safe, accurate and available when needed.
Meridian Cloud is Accruent’s enterprise-grade engineering document management system that provides a repository for an organization’s blueprints and CAD drawings, and other asset technical information. Its configurable workflows help users streamline collaboration with all internal departments and ensures every document change is versioned and audited to assure regulatory compliance.
The SOC 2 Type II audit assures Meridian Cloud’s processes have been verified in the critical areas of:
- Security – Including intrusion detection, multi-factor authentication, and use of network and application firewalls to keep data repositories safe from intruders.
- Availability – Including performance monitoring, security incident handling, and disaster recovery to make certain that information is available when it is needed.
