Athennian Announces Completion of SOC 2 Type I Audit Certification

Athennian, the fastest-growing legal entity management cloud software, today announced that BDO LLP has successfully completed its audit of Athennian’s Service Organization Controls, and Athennian is now a (SOC) 2 Type 1 certified organization.

“As paralegals, law clerks, corporate secretaries, and subsidiary governance professionals,  our customers are managing large amounts of sensitive data. Keeping that data safe is our highest priority,” said Josh Malate, Chief Financial Officer at Athennian. “Our aim is to enable legal, tax and compliance teams to work together effortlessly. The SOC2 certification shows our ongoing commitment to provide market leading security to protect customer data.”

Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 certification is widely recognized as a gold standard for data security and requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures. By achieving Type 1 certification, an independent third party has validated the design of Athennian’s controls relevant to security, availability, confidentiality, and privacy. Athennian’s Type 1 certification demonstrates an organization’s commitment to data security through the practices and procedures it follows for protecting against unauthorized access, maintaining the availability of its service, and protecting the confidential information of its customers.

New Enterprise Controls and Security

As part of the company’s focus on security, the Athennian team is continuing to build and improve on administrative controls for its customers. Recently, Athennian released integrations with Microsoft Azure AD and Otka for administrators to centrally control user access and enforce multi-factor identity authentication.
