Service Organization Controls (SOC) are a set of standards designed to measure the ability of a given service organization to control its information in its service environments (e.g., the clouds it manages). SOC 2 compliance concerns internal controls of an advanced IT service organization. A company achieves SOC 2 compliance by having sufficient policies and strategies in place to protect client data.
What SOC 2 Means for Zadara Storage
Our customers and regulators expect independent verification of security and availability controls. Service Organization Control (SOC) Reports are independent third-party examination reports that demonstrate how Zadara Storage achieves standard compliance. Zadara Storage undergoes independent third party audits on a regular basis to provide this assurance. This means that an independent auditor has examined the controls present in our services, products and operations.
The auditor documents the controls Zadara Storage has put in place in a SOC 2 report. The report evaluates the effectiveness of a service provider system based on the AICPA Trust Service Principles and Criteria.
