CIT’s top priority is your business

We want our customers to know our promise to keep CIT and their business secure as cyber threats evolve. We keep data privacy on top of mind, adhere to industry and government standards, and comply with the latest regulations across solutions and services.

CIT uses a 3rd party to audit our security program to the SOC 2 Type II compliance standard

We include yearly security reviews, security training, vulnerability scans, and so on in our offerings for our customers. This is by design, we are purposely building strong, secure core infrastructure and the core of a security program for our customers. While that is a great start, our customers are strongly encouraged to have detection and recovery processes and tools in place such as Endpoint Detection and Response capabilities and a secure, validated recovery solution.
