Leading Virtual Family Office Platform Committed to Safeguarding Client Data
LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL, June 14, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Dow Software is pleased to announce that its flagship product, the Strad Professional 2.0 Virtual Family Office Platform, successfully completed SOC 2 Type 1 cybersecurity certification in April 2022. SOC 2 is a rigorous standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to evaluate whether an organization can effectively protect client data, with compliance determined by an independent auditor. Dow Software pursued SOC 2 certification to assure its clients and partners that its security practices meet or exceed industry standards.
An extensive analysis of both Dow Software’s internal processes and Strad Professional’s security controls was conducted by A-LIGN, a highly respected cybersecurity and compliance firm. The auditors focused on security and confidentiality, the aspects of SOC 2 with the greatest importance to Dow’s clients. The full 51-page audit is available from Dow Software upon written request.
“This certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest levels of data security,” says Russell Dow, the company’s CEO and the chief developer of Strad Professional. “SOC 2 compliance is an essential component to ensuring trust, and it is a litmus test for enterprise-level financial applications.”
The company now plans to pursue an even more stringent level of compliance, SOC 2 Type 2. “We recognize that the cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving,” continues Dow. “Our customers and partners can have total confidence that we will make continuous investments to stay ahead of current and future threats and protect their sensitive data on the Strad platform.”
