SOC 2 Type 2
When enterprises move their most important data to the cloud, security is an essential consideration when using new software. The SOC 2 Type II certification provides assurance that a platform’s security is held to an extremely high standard. The AICPA SOC 2 is specifically designed for guaranteeing secure practices in the handling of data within the cloud by SaaS companies. The Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II certification is understood to be one of the most thorough examination of an organization’s data-handling practices. It establishes that an expert team of third-party auditors have meticulously examined the data-handling process, and found it to be safe and secure.
