Independent Audit Verifies Uptake’s Internal Controls and Processes

CHICAGO –– May 31, 2022 –– Uptake, a leader in industrial intelligence, announced today that
it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. SOC 2 compliance
demonstrates that software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications have the necessary controls and
processes in place to protect data processed on their systems, and is a critical criterion for
evaluating the security of software vendors.

“The safety and cyber-security of industrial data and systems are critical for our customers and
partners, and they’re core to our products and services,” said Linda Bartman, President, Uptake.
“We’re committed to ensuring data entrusted to Uptake is secure and available for all of our
customers’ objectives –– from digital transformation to sustainability initiatives.”

A SOC 2 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that a service organization’s
information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA. During the
audit, a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls, including security, availability,
processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy, are tested. The SOC 2 report delivered by
KirkpatrickPrice verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of Uptake’s
controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of
KirkpatrickPrice. “Uptake delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating
the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Uptake’s controls.”
