New York – 1 February 2021 – Pipedrive, the leading CRM for sales and marketing teams, announced today that the company has successfully completed audits for its System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2, SOC 3, and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificates, demonstrating that Pipedrive’s long-standing commitment to information security management aligns with the privacy and info security requirements that meet our customers’ needs.
“Data security and privacy are high priority for Pipedrive and these certificates give our users confidence that we are meeting the highest industry standards to protect the data they entrust to us,” said Jesse Wojtkowiak Head of Information Security, Pipedrive. “We want to offer our customers peace of mind and full transparency when and how their business data is stored and processed. At the same time, we constantly guide our users on how they can safeguard their CRM against vulnerabilities and share best practices on tackling security alerts.”
“Since Pipedrive’s inception, we have been a cloud company. Today, more and more companies are joining us in the cloud. As you can imagine, data security in a cloud environment is a priority for them. These challenges are the same no matter the size of the company,” said Wojtkowiak. According to a recent Gartner study, which surveyed nearly 1,900 Chief Information Officers, cyber/information security topped (61%) the priorities for IT spending in 2021.
Pipedrive has long been dedicated to data security. The combination of ISO 27001 and SOC 2 and 3 is a clear indication of the company’s commitment to transparency and continuous improvement of the information security management program. Recent SoftwareReviews’ report that analyzed feedback from actual customers stated that Pipedrive is the leading CRM vendor in terms of security that protects users instead of frustrating them.
SOC 2 is a well-accepted and tested standard that requires companies to not only look internally but to vet their supply chain to ensure that they are living up to the trust principles. SOC 2 defines criteria for managing customer data based on five “trust service principles”: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. SOC 3 provides the highest level of assurance of operational excellence that a company can receive. ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security. It specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization.
