As a leading provider of Knowledge Network software services, OnFrontiers takes the protection of user data very seriously. As a measure of the company’s ongoing focus on data security, OnFrontiers successfully completed its annual AICPA System & Organization Controls (SOC 2) Type 2 compliance audit on August 4, 2023, and are compliant at the highest level. “As a knowledge sharing platform, our greatest priority is the privacy and security of our platform and customer data,” said company CEO Brian Caouette. “At OnFrontiers, we are committed to meeting the highest standards of security, to provide a knowledge sharing environment in which our customers and experts can be confident. We integrate privacy and data security into everything we do, and our maintenance of SOC 2 compliance demonstrates our continued dedication to achieving and verifying excellence in this area.” SOC 2 is considered by many as the gold standard for security compliance for SaaS companies.

Security- The system is protected against unauthorized access, both physical and logical.
Availability- The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
