With the successful completion of a rigid Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 audit, the Appian Cloud BPM platform's security, availability and confidentiality prowess has been confirmed. An assessment of adherence to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards, the SOC 2 audit examines a cloud solution's ability to provide secure and reliable service for any business or organization, as well as assuring that the platform aligns with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 controls.

Appian Cloud BPM software provides a powerful resource for business process management needs that is superior to on-premise solutions in a variety of ways. From reducing capital investments to ensuring cost-free maintenance and systems operations, these tools allow firms to gain all of the advantages of high-quality business process management software without the headaches of the associated hardware and software. Additionally, these tools provide the benefits of Appian's on-premise BPM Suite with the added benefits of easy remote access and mobility.

"Appian has set the bar in cloud BPM since we brought the first complete BPM suite to the cloud in 2007," said Myles Weber, Vice President of Cloud and Community Services at Appian. "We are pleased that our SOC 2 report provides additional validation of what hundreds of Appian Cloud customers already know: we provide the safest, most modern and most reliable platform for rapidly creating and rolling out enterprise applications in the cloud."

Enterprise BPM software allows organizations to expedite the design, execution and management of workflow, whether implementing new processes or simply improving previous ones. By seamlessly integrating workflow automation with the cloud, Appian's solutions provide these benefits in an easy-to-use web browser that ensures professionals can utilize these tools from anywhere.

Any business can benefit from utilizing business process automation and management solutions, but the SOC 2 audit confirms that Appian's platforms are viable options for government application and other highly-sensitive industries as well. Any organization looking to implement key processes in the cloud will need a secure and reliable resource for controlling them.

With over 3.5 million clients, Appian BPM is a highly-trusted solution for business and government use with cloud, social or mobile needs. Operating at the highest levels of efficiency is key for any organization, and Appian is there to help streamline operations and ensure that professionals aren't held back by the technology they are using.
