NEW YORK — Sept. 11, 2023 — Echo360, the most comprehensive, global, SaaS video and learning engagement platform for creating, delivering, and measuring learning engagement outcomes in any environment, has completed the System and Organization Controls 2 (SOC2) Type II report for its cloud-hosted solutions. The milestone represents the latest in the company’s ongoing commitment to meet or exceed industry standards of data security and customer privacy for the thousands of institutions and millions of learners it serves across education, business, and government markets worldwide.
Echo360 partnered with BDO USA, LLP to complete the globally recognized audit, following its successful audit and SOC 2 Type I compliance certification earlier this year. Established by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 defines the criteria for managing customer data based on five trust service principles of security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. SOC 2 audits are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) AT-C 205, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization.
SOC 2 is an optional yet highly regarded certification for SaaS platform providers like Echo360 and is among the many certifications and standards Echo360 maintains for security, reliability, availability, and privacy including SOC 2 Type I, LTI 1.3, HECVAT, and TX-RAMP. The strong foundation and track record of security and privacy practices helped Echo360 receive its SOC 2 Type II certification in only eight months. “Echo360’s entire Echosystem of SaaS platforms – including recently released EchoPoll and EchoExam – are designed, engineered, and held to the highest levels of data security and customer privacy,” said Manoj Rana, Echo360’s Chief Technology Officer. “Our SOC2® Type II compliance certification, especially considering the accelerated timeframe in which it was achieved, is a testament to Echo360’s best practices and ongoing commitment to be the leader in enabling inspired and secure learning experiences at scale.”
