Announcing SOC 2 Type II Certification: Our Continuing Commitment to Excellence in Security and Trust

We are pleased to announce that CData has achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance. This certification underscores our ongoing commitment to protecting our customers’ valuable data.

LBMC, an independent vendor for System and Organization Controls (SOC) Certification, performed the audit. To qualify for the certification, they reviewed CData’s information security mechanisms, guidelines, and procedures to ensure they meet the exacting standards based on the Trust Services Criteria (TSC) set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

The report covers all CData products: CData Connect Cloud, CData Connect Server, CData Drivers, CData Sync, and CData Arc.

What is SOC 2 Compliance?

System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 is a widely recognized security standard developed by the AICPA that specifies how organizations should manage customer data. A SOC 2 report is often the primary document that security departments rely on to assess a vendor’s ability to maintain adequate security.

Service providers like CData voluntarily undergo a rigorous audit and assessment to ensure their security controls meet AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria, including:

  • Security
  • Availability
  • Processing integrity
  • Confidentiality

SOC 2 compliance comes in two forms: A SOC 2 Type I report describes the design of a service provider’s system controls to meet relevant trust criteria as of a specific point in time, while a SOC 2 Type II report details the operational effectiveness of those systems controls to perform as designed over a specified period of time.

Our commitment to data security

SOC 2 compliance is a critical security initiative and an important milestone for CData. Organizations can deploy our market-leading data connectivity solutions in the cloud and on-premises with confidence that each product meets exacting, industry-standard security and risk management criteria. Information security is a top concern for every organization and will continue to be a priority here at CData.
