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, which include:

  • Security
  • Availability
  • Processing integrity
  • Confidentiality

SOC 2 compliance comes in two forms: A SOC 2 Type 1 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.

CData’s Security Milestone

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