BurstIQ is the First and Only Blockchain Data Platform to Receive SOC 2 Type 2 Certification
DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / January 10, 2019 / BurstIQ, the leading provider of blockchain platform solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today that the company has successfully completed a SOC 2 Type 2 audit performed by independent CPA firm Linford & Co. The company’s HIPAA-compliant blockchain data platform passed the audit with zero exceptions – the highest level possible. This audit positions BurstIQ as the first and only blockchain platform to receive compliance certification under SOC 2 Type 2 audit requirements.
BurstIQ provides enterprise-level data platform solutions to large health systems, insurers, digital health companies and all levels of government: local, state, national and global.

Brian Jackson, COO of BurstIQ, underscored the implications of being the first blockchain provider to achieve SOC certification. “This certification is a huge milestone for the blockchain industry. Blockchain holds the potential to fundamentally change how businesses and individuals access and manage sensitive personal information, but only if we can assure users that their data is secure.
