Audit furthers company’s commitment to security as it looks to accelerate commercial adoption of practical quantum computing solutions
BURNABY, B.C. & PALO ALTO, Calif. – April 27, 2023 – D-Wave Quantum Inc. (NYSE: QBTS), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services, and the only commercial provider building both annealing and gate-model quantum computers, today announced the successful completion of its SOC 2® Type 1 audit as of March 13, 2023, as it looks to rapidly accelerate the commercial adoption of its quantum computing solutions.
The SOC 2 audit was conducted by leading compliance assessor A-LIGN, a technology-enabled security and compliance partner trusted by more than 2,500 global organizations to help mitigate cybersecurity risks.
“As organizations increasingly turn to D-Wave to solve their most computationally complex business problems with quantum technology, we’re undergoing a series of initiatives designed to enhance our production and commercial readiness, including SOC 2 compliance,” said Dr. Alan Baratz, CEO of D-Wave. “The protection of our customers’ data is paramount, and we’re committed to initiatives like SOC 2 to ensure commercial-grade security measures are established and regularly reviewed.”
Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 examination is designed for organizations of any size, regardless of industry and scope, to ensure the personal assets of their potential and existing customers are protected. SOC 2 reports are recognized globally and affirm that a company’s infrastructure, software, people, data, policies, procedures, and operations have been formally reviewed.
“A SOC 2 audit is a statement about an organization’s commitment to protecting their information.” said Stephanie Oyler-Rankin, SOC Practice Lead at A-LIGN. “As a trusted third-party assessment firm, A-LIGN independently evaluates client data processes and procedures, governance on internal controls and security posture. D-Wave’s SOC 2 report validates its commitment to data security and protection, as well as compliance with critical standards to mitigate cybersecurity threats.”
D-Wave will regularly perform SOC 2 assessments and can make the report available to current or potential customers upon execution of a nondisclosure agreement.
