The company’s compliance to SOC 2 Type II demonstrates the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of its controls relevant to security
TORONTO, ON – (December 12, 2023) MolecuLight Inc., the leader in point-of-care fluorescence imaging that locates and detects elevated bacterial loads in and around wounds, announces that it successfully completed its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit. The SOC 2 is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts (AICPA). Successful completion of the SOC 2 Type II audit validates MolecuLight’s focus on security and compliance, and demonstrates a major milestone for the company.
The SOC 2 Type II audit verifies that MolecuLight’s internal controls, policies, and procedures conform to stringent security and operational standards that demonstrate the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of its controls relevant to SOC 2 security criteria. SOC 2 defines criteria for managing customer data based on five "Trust Service Criteria"—security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Certification demonstrates a company’s ability to not only implement critical security policies but also prove compliance over an extended period.
"We believe that the relationship with our customers must be built on trust," said Anil Amlani, CEO of MolecuLight. "SOC 2 Type ll compliance marks an important milestone for MolecuLight and our i:X® and DX™ devices. It highlights our commitment to ensuring the highest level of data security for our customers. This gives our customers even greater confidence that their data are being carefully stored and protected."
A SOC 2 Type II audit is performed by an accredited CPA firm and verifies that safeguards are in place to protect customer data and that the safeguards are operational. MolecuLight’s audit was performed by PwC.
The MolecuLight i:X and DX are the only imaging devices for the real-time detection of elevated bacterial burden in wounds that are FDA cleared and CE and Health Canada approved. With clinical evidence including over 80 peer-reviewed publications involving 2,500 patients, they are used by leading wound care facilities globally.
