The VelocityEHS Advantage
Many EHS software vendors say they are fully SOC 2 Type II compliant, but this isn’t always true. It’s often the case that only one or perhaps a handful of the controls in their solution stack have actually been verified for compliance with SOC 2 Type II control standards — leaving their customers vulnerable to system intrusions, data loss, and threats to the privacy of confidential information.
Data Security & Privacy Control Categories
- Organization and Management
- Risk Management and Design and Implementation of Controls
- Logical and Physical Access (Data Center handles Physical Access)
- Systems Operations
- Change Management
- Availability (Data Center handles part of availability)
VelocityEHS stands apart from other EHS software vendors in this regard. Each category of data security and privacy controls within our solution stack has been individually audited for compliance with SOC 2 Type II standards. These include the software application itself, our off-site data centers, cloud hosting environment, disaster recovery services and other data infrastructure, as well as our development, support, personnel and office administration policies. We take the security and privacy of your data seriously, and have put the people and processes in place necessary to give you the highest possible level of protection.
In addition, adherence to SOC 2 standards ensures that the VelocityEHS solution is closely aligned with a wide range of other national and international data protection requirements, including PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), ISO 27001, HIPAA, CSAE 3416 Type 2, ISAE 3402 Type 2, EU-GDPR, Privacy Shield and similar Safe Harbor principles.
As a true cloud-based SaaS solution, the VelocityEHS Platform has proven to be more secure than any of the hosted EHS software solutions on the market. Our solutions are accepted by more organizations as meeting their security standards than any other EHS software provider…period.
It’s just one more reason why over 13,000 customers and 8 million users worldwide trust VelocityEHS to help them meet their EHS data management needs.
