Today we are proud to announce a major milestone – we have successfully completed Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type I certification with zero exceptions.
The independent audit was performed by Prescient using Akitra’s Andromeda Compliance automation platform and validates that our data security policies, controls, tools and practices meet the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Trust Services Criteria for System and Organization Control. Akitra’s Andromeda Compliance platform uses automation to ensure continuous monitoring of cloud assets and endless compliance evidence collection to ensure customer data is protected. Going forward, regular SOC 2 audits will be conducted to ensure that compliance constantly remains in force.
