SmarterHQ’s Commitment to Customer Data Security Verified with SOC 2 Type II Examination Report

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – December 11, 2018 – SmarterHQ, a leading multi-channel behavioral marketing platform, announced today it has completed its first Service and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II examination report. This was earned after a rigorous examination process surrounding the AICPA’s trust services criteria relevant to security performed by Crowe LLP, one of the nation’s leading service providers of SOC examination reports. The report was completed with an unqualified opinion (no exception matters noted in the Auditor’s report). Reaching this milestone provides independent validation that SmarterHQ’s data protection controls provide maximum security for customer information.

“SmarterHQ has always prioritized the secure collection and processing of customer data,” said Dean Abbott, CTO, Chief Data Scientist, and Co-Founder of SmarterHQ. “Successful completion of the SOC 2 Type II examination report reflects this continuous commitment and demonstrates our ability to deliver the highest levels of data security and protection. Achieving compliance without exceptions provides our clients with confidence that their data is protected and secured at all times.”

The SOC 2 Type II examination report acknowledges SmarterHQ’s stringent adherence to data security and solidifies their commitment to trust, security, compliance, and transparency when it comes to their customers’ data. This is a reason why some of the world’s most high-profile brands trust and have partnered with SmarterHQ, including Sam’s Club, American Eagle Outfitters, Bloomingdale’s, CarRentals.com, Eddie Bauer, Finish Line, Hilton Hotels, Michael Kors, Omni Hotels & Resorts and Santander Bank, among others.
