Construction productivity software pioneer sets industry standard by obtaining SOC2 Type 2 certificate, OAuth 2.0 and Privacy Shield
San Francisco, CA — September 18, 2018 — PlanGrid, the leader in construction productivity software, today announced it has achieved three new security and privacy milestones, demonstrating its commitment to keeping customers’ data safe and secure. These milestones include one of the highest levels of security accreditation for software companies in the United States, SOC 2 Type 2 certification, as well as OAuth 2.0 and Privacy Shield. PlanGrid is the only mobile-first construction productivity software to offer all three safeguards across desktop and all iOS and Android devices.
The new security and privacy measures will provide a competitive advantage for PlanGrid customers, particularly general contractors and specialty contractors who work directly with government entities on infrastructure projects such as airports and subway systems that require an extra level of secure documentation. For owners like Departments of Transportation or metro authorities, PlanGrid’s security and privacy measures provide peace of mind that blueprints and sensitive construction data are secure and will remain confidential.
The new security and privacy standards PlanGrid has achieved include:
“As more construction information becomes digital, GCs, subs and owners are increasingly faced with risks associated with data privacy and IT security,” said Srikanth Veeraraghavan, head of security at PlanGrid. “Companies should entrust sensitive data such as blueprints and contracts only to technology providers that can ensure the highest level of security possible. PlanGrid is loved for our easy-to-use software, and we also give our customers enterprise-level scalability, reliability and data management. Our industry-leading measures reinforce to our customers just how seriously we take security and data privacy.”
