Today we’re delighted to announce we’re SOC 2 Type 2 compliant.
What is SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance?
The Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 is an auditing procedure developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). This procedure ensures that service providers, such as Software as a Service (SaaS) companies, manage data securely to protect the interests of the organization and the privacy of its clients.
There are two types of SOC 2 compliance – Type 1 and Type 2. While SOC 2 Type 1 compliance addresses a company's systems and whether they are suitably designed to meet relevant trust criteria, SOC 2 Type 2 goes a step further.
SOC 2 Type 2 compliance not only reviews the systems but also the operational effectiveness of those systems over a defined period. In simple terms, it verifies whether our security practices, policies, procedures, and operations meet the SOC 2 standards for managing customer data based on five "trust service principles"—security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
We’re delighted to announce this important milestone for our customers. For those looking for further details on our compliance and related documentation, please reach out.
