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.

Why are we blogging?

We believe that knowledge sharing stimulates ideas, fosters innovation and enables change, which is what our business is all about.  Plus, our teammates are passionate about what they do and want to share their perspectives gained from their industry experience.  Lastly and with full transparency, we want to improve our SEO, expand our market reach, and deliver enterprise change to a larger client base.
Why should you follow our blog?
 
Let’s be honest, the only reason you hire a services firm is to gain knowledge, experience, or perspective that you can’t easily obtain within your organization.  To demonstrate our value and hopefully gain your business or referral, we are blogging to share our insights and point of views.  So without any investment or obligation (perhaps an email or two), you are able to learn from our experiences.

If you haven’t heard of our new productLeapPoint Onewe encourage to check it out immediately. And if you haven’t seen our flashy new video promoting LeapPoint One, we definitely encourage you to watch that too. In fact, do that first. We’re pretty proud of it.

LeapPoint One is a revolutionary product for any shared service organization. It sits on top of your project intake system, taking the place of the standard request form interface. It allows you to provide both visual and verbal details about the products or services your organization offers with a level of depth and interactivity that simply aren’t possible with current systems on the market today. The application provides a familiar, e-commerce style experience that makes it easy for requesters to not only find what they’re looking for, but make multiple requests at once, saving them time and effort. One the back end, the application syncs with a myriad of enterprise systems allowing you the flexibility to bundle similar offerings together as one “product”. Is a particular offering split between marketing and IT? Not a problem. One can take a single request and initiate a project in Workfront and a separate one in JIRA. Need an account created or updated in Salesforce at the same time? Easy as pie. No additional requests required.

As a shared service, One allows you to offer the same level of professionalism and experience as a customer-facing organization.
