OrderMyGear (OMG), the leading online store platform for selling custom branded merchandise to groups, announces it has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 audit, making it the first online store platform to achieve this certification in the promotional product and team sporting goods space.
Companies that achieve SOC 2 compliance undergo a rigorous technical audit by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), which certifies the company meets strict requirements around security, privacy, availability, and confidentiality of customer data.
“We hold ourselves to the highest standard when it comes to the security of our clients and their customers,” says Daniel Hodges, Senior Vice President of Engineering. “OrderMyGear is proud to be the only online store platform that is SOC 2 Type 1 compliant. Keeping our clients protected is our top priority as a company and as a partner.”
Using an online store solution that is SOC 2 compliant empowers promotional product distributors, decorators, and team dealers to sell more branded merchandise online, without concerns about the security of their data or their customer’s data.
“With cybersecurity incidents on the rise and more and more businesses selling online, this certification has become increasingly important,” says Dustin Downing, Chief Product Officer. “The SOC 2 certification demonstrates OMG’s commitment to having the proper controls in place so clients can be confident that when they partner with OMG, their data is safe.”
As one of the leading standards for SaaS security, the SOC 2 attestation is only granted after a comprehensive audit process that covers AICPA’s Five Trust and Integrity Principles: privacy, security, confidentiality, availability, and processing integrity.
OMG is currently pursuing a SOC 2 Type 2 report.
