BridgeFT, a cloud-native, API-first wealth infrastructure software company that enables financial institutions, fintech innovators and registered investment advisors (RIAs) to deliver better, data-driven outcomes for their clients, announced today that it has successfully completed its SOC (System and Organization Control) 2 Type II audit.

Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), a SOC 2 information security standard is a report that validates controls relevant to security, availability, integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. The SOC 2 Type II certification ensures service providers meet a standard degree of security control in areas including organization and management, communications, risk management and monitoring of controls.

The audit was completed with the help of Johanson Group LLP, a premier certification body helping organizations to obtain and maintain global compliance standards. Johanson Group attested to BridgeFT’s information security controls meeting the leading industry standards for financial services. Throughout the process, Johanson Group measured the availability, security, and integrity of BridgeFT’s WealthTech API and its data processing systems to ultimately determine whether effective safeguards and controls are in place. SOC 2 has a rigorous requirement on how companies handle customer data and information, and it is considered one of the highest standards for security accreditation.

With this achievement, BridgeFT maintains its adherence to one of the most stringent, industry-accepted compliance frameworks for service organizations and provides additional assurance to its clients, through an independent auditor, that its business process, information technology and risk management controls are properly designed and operating as intended.

“Achieving SOC 2 compliance is a major milestone for our company and an important indicator of how seriously we take data security,” said BridgeFT Chief Executive Officer Joe Stensland. “We’re committed to delivering the highest level of data security and privacy, and SOC 2 is a key part of that commitment. We’ll continue to invest in our modern, API-first platform infrastructure to ensure that our clients can trust us with their most sensitive data”
