Conducted by Kirkpatrick Price, the audit examined both the company and the GreatHorn Email Security platform and concluded that GreatHorn meets the SOC 2 standards for security, availability, and confidentiality with zero exceptions listed.

The SOC 2 Type 2 report not only documents GreatHorn’s information security practices, policies, and procedures, but also audits the adherence of the company and its product to the rigorous standards outlined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) over an extended period of time. In achieving zero listed exceptions, GreatHorn demonstrates to customers its commitment to maintaining the outlined security controls.

“A SOC 2 Type 2 examination should be table stakes for any security organization selling into the enterprise,” said Kevin O’Brien, CEO and co-founder of GreatHorn. “Our customers rightfully expect their security vendors to meet the highest industry standards, and by delivering this report with zero listed exceptions, we’re able to provide them with independent verification of our commitment to the AICPA standards for security, availability, and confidentiality.”

“The SOC 2 report demonstrates our ability to not only implement the necessary controls to adhere to the strenuous SOC 2 framework set by the AICPA, but also our ability to follow these practices over time and our continuous commitment to internal information security practices, policies, procedures, and operations,” said Ray Wallace, CTO and co-founder.
