At LeapPoint, we continually invest in security best practices to ensure that your data stays safe. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve successfully completed our SOC 2 Type 1 audit.

“A commitment to enterprise-grade security is one reason why many leading Fortune 500 software companies have achieved this status, and now we can say that LeapPoint is no different,” says Ali Langston, Information Security Officer at LeapPoint.

What is SOC 2 Type 1 certification?

SOC 2 is considered the gold standard for security compliance for software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies. SOC 2 requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures, encompassing the security, availability, and confidentiality of customer data.

Achieving SOC 2 Type 1 certification means that our software development processes and practices meet required levels of oversight and monitoring so that we can proactively identify and address any unusual activity. Ultimately with this certification, our goal is to give our clients the peace of mind they deserve when using our products – JumpSeat, LeapPoint One, and DataConnect.

We are proud to announce LeapPoint’s new status as a Microsoft Azure Silver Partner.

The Silver Cloud Platform Competency is an acknowledgment given only to those who specialize in building, integrating and/or extending solutions or infrastructures using the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

An organization can only qualify for the Cloud Platform Competency after demonstrating proven Azure performance, passing rigorous technology assessments, meeting the Azure consumption requirement and providing references that not only prove successful implementation of cloud projects but satisfactory customer service. Due to the challenging criteria, achieving a silver competency places LeapPoint among a small percentage of Microsoft partners worldwide.
