When it comes to protecting the peace of mind of our customers, we don’t settle for anything less than the gold standard.
A while ago, we announced our big security milestone demonstrating the merit of our internal organizational controls, SOC 2 Type 1 compliance. Now we are back with our next big one: SOC 2 Type 2 compliance.
Read why it matters to MSPs.
What does SOC 2 Type 2 compliance mean?
SOC 2 Type 2 is a compliance certification issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to organizations that meet their rigorous security standards.
The process involves an audit where an external auditor evaluates a company against a range of security controls. This includes measuring the prowess of the company in encrypting sensitive data, conducting risk assessments, enforcing access controls, and more.
In addition, the auditor will assess their incident response plan, backup and data recovery practices, and their ability to ensure uninterrupted service availability. This assessment also extends to the security posture of the third parties the company works with. Any company that is after SOC 2 Type 2 certification has to demonstrate all these attributes.
After a thorough audit of all our security practices over a considerable period of time, we’re happy to announce we are officially SOC 2 Type 2 compliant now. This means we:
a) take your privacy (and peace of mind!) seriously,
b) have implemented effective measures,
c) and have invested in the necessary infrastructure
…in order to achieve the same.
Difference between SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 compliance
SOC 2 Type 1 compliance is about evaluating how effective the security practices in a company are. SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is about verifying that the security practices are actually being put into practice.
Achieving SOC 2 Type 2 compliance matters because it ensures that the company does not just meet the minimum security requirements, but that they are being followed meticulously.
Your trust matters to us
In an era where there is an alarming increase in information thefts, organizations have to adhere to strict security standards to ensure data privacy, protection, and regulatory compliance. The lack of security can cost you more than money - it can cost you your clients, reputation, and ultimately the trust you’ve worked so hard to establish. Security is also not a short-term activity. These compliance processes help address any shortcomings before they become an issue. This means your MSP will be more secure in the long run and be ready to face any cyber threats that arise in the future. Chances are your customers have already started looking for answers on how you will protect their business.
At SuperOps.ai, our primary goal is to provide you with an environment where your data is safe, your customer trust is protected, and your peace of mind is ultimately in the right hands.
Our advancement to SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is a testament to the fact that we take the security of your data and that of your clients very seriously and are fully committed to providing you with the best-in-class experience at all times.
