Gradifi Achieves SOC2 Type II Attestation


today announced that it successfully completed an audit established by
American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to certify
its SOC2 Type II compliance for its student loan and college savings
benefit platform for U.S. employers.

Gradifi's SOC2 Type II audit verifies that an independent accounting
firm reviewed and tested the company's internal controls and confirmed
that they meet the AICPA's rigorous requirements for security,
availability, processing integrity and confidentiality.

Gradifi's cloud-based platform, which provides student loan repayment,
student loan refinance and college savings options as an employee
benefit, met the AICPA standard with zero exceptions, the highest
security standard set by the organization.

In 2017, Gradifi received ISO
27001 certification
, one of the most widely-recognized information
security management system standards.

"SOC2 Type II attestation is part of Gradifi's ongoing commitment to
operate by the highest standards of security and confidentiality," said
Joe Finsterwald, Chief Technology Officer of Gradifi. "Employers can
offer Gradifi's employee benefit platform with the confidence that
private information will remain safe and secure."
