RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2013) - Appian, the market leader in modern business process management (BPM) software, announced the successful completion of a Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 audit for its Appian Cloud platform.

The SOC 2 report provides a review, by an independent audit firm, of Appian Cloud's security, availability, and confidentiality controls. Along with Appian Cloud's support of the US Federal government with a security framework that aligns to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 moderate controls, the SOC 2 certification ensures that Appian Cloud provides the security and reliability commercial and government customers require to drive mission-critical systems in the cloud.
