SSAE 16 Service Organization Control II (SOC 2)
Evolve IP has received an SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II report on our internal controls relating to how we assess and address the potential risks associated with the security, availability, and confidentiality of not only the cloud-based services that we provide, but also our physical and logical infrastructure. Evolve IP utilizes the Certified Public Accounting firm of Grant Thornton to perform its annual audit and attestation in accordance with the Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 and the associated Trust Services Principles, as published by the AICPA, to evaluate the effectiveness of Evolve IP’s service organizations controls.
International Traffic in Arms Regulations Compliant (ITAR)
The Compliance Cloud™ supports U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance. As part of managing a comprehensive ITAR compliance program, companies subject to ITAR export regulations must control unintended exports by restricting access to U.S. persons and restricting the physical location of that data to the U.S.
The Compliance Cloud™ provides an environment physically located in the U.S. and where access by Evolve IP associates is limited to U.S. persons, thereby allowing qualified customers to transmit, process, and store protected articles and data subject to ITAR restriction. The Evolve IP Compliance Cloud™ environment has been audited by and independent third-party to validate the proper controls are in place to support customer export compliance programs for this requirement.
Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA)
The Privacy regulations of the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) require health care providers, organizations, and their business associates, develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is transferred, received, handled, or shared. This applies to all forms of PHI — paper, oral, and electronic, etc. Those who fail to adhere to HIPAA can suffer from huge fines climbing into the millions of dollars for major violations.
The Compliance Cloud™ fully enables covered entities and their business associates subject to HIPAA regulations to leverage a secure environment to process, maintain, and store protected health Information (PHI) featuring among other controls:
- Military-grade data encryption in transit and at rest
- Password protected access to backups
- Redundant secure data centers
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program standardizes how the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) applies to cloud computing services.
FedRAMP process are designed to assist agencies in meeting FISMA requirements for cloud systems. The FedRAMP assessment is primarily based on the NIST SP800-53 rev4 control standards. FedRAMP is required for all agencies or cloud service providers that currently use, host, or want to host federal information in a cloud environment.
Evolve IP has gone through an assessment of The Compliance Cloud™ verifying that the controls are in place to meet the FedRAMP requirements for a low-impact risk environment.
