Partner Relationship Management Software Leader ZINFI Receives SOC 2 Type 2 Data Security Attestation for the Fourth Consecutive Year
Successful audit of leading partner relationship management software provider is part of an ongoing security initiative at ZINFI that prioritizes rigorous protection of customer data
Pleasanton, CA — April 25, 2023 – ZINFI Technologies, Inc., the leader in Unified Channel Management (UCM) solutions encompassing partner relationship management (PRM) and through-channel marketing automation, today announced it has successfully completed the System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 audit for the period 2022-23. Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 information security standard is an audit report examining controls relevant to five trust services criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. A SOC 2 report describes a service organization’s systems, determines whether the design of specified controls meets the relevant trust principles and assesses the effectiveness of those controls over a specified period of time. Like the reports issued for ZINFI in previous years, ZINFI’s SOC 2 Type 2 report for 2022-23 did not have any exceptions and was therefore issued with a “clean audit opinion.”
“Maintaining the security of customer data continues to be an essential component of partner relationship management, particularly as new data privacy regulations emerge from a broad range of agencies and jurisdictions, both globally and within the US,” said Sugata Sanyal, founder and CEO of ZINFI Technologies, Inc. “The recent compliance audit is just one of a series of ongoing measures we are taking to mitigate potential data security risks and earn the trust and confidence of our customers and the thousands of organizations they work with every day. We are pleased to learn an independent third-party auditor has once again confirmed we meet the criteria for SOC 2 audit Type 2 attestation, and we remain committed to adapting our platform and our processes going forward to address today’s constantly evolving data security and compliance challenges.”
Security enhancements are a frequent focus of updates to ZINFI’s adaptive software-as-a-service (aSaaS) platform for Unified Channel Management, which includes affiliate marketing management, partner relationship management, partner marketing management, partner incentives management, partner portal management and portal administration management. In 2020, ZINFI launched its platform on Microsoft Azure, leveraging Azure’s multi-layer security controls to ensure access to encrypted data is managed both in motion and at rest. ZINFI also works hard to keep its customers informed about evolving security protocols, and has established resource centers on its website for both GDPR compliance and CCPA compliance to help customers and their global networks of partners understand and prepare for emerging compliance challenges.
ZINFI offers its potential customers a 30-day free trial (no credit card required) providing access to its entire Unified Channel Marketing (UCM) automation platform. This allows any prospective buyers to test-drive its industry-leading channel management applications before making a purchase decision.
