The achievement of this important milestone confirms NetRise’s status as a trustworthy and secure vendor in the supply chain security marketplace, as previously indicated by our certification as SOC 2 Type I compliant. In sharing this news, we want to provide the answers to some commonly asked questions around SOC 2 compliance.

What is SOC 2 Compliance?

SOC 2 is a voluntary security standard set out by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), created specifically for technology companies gathering and storing sensitive data. SOC 2 compliance is widely considered a key indicator of a commitment to the privacy and security of customer data. As a SaaS solution provider, adhering to these standards and demonstrating the security of our practices is absolutely critical for NetRise.


Why Does SOC 2 Compliance Matter?

As cybersecurity vulnerabilities, exploits, and attacks continue to increase, obtaining SOC 2 compliance has never been more important. SOC 2 compliance isn’t just nice to have, it is a necessary validation of our commitment to the highest standards of data security. Meeting the requirements signifies NetRise has made a concerted effort to handle customer data safely and responsibly.

What Does a SOC 2 Type II Audit Entail?

SOC 2 Type II audits comprise three vital criteria across an extended observation period: Security, Availability, and Confidentiality. Countless tests are undertaken to ensure the seamless implementation and operating effectiveness of our internal controls. These tests are designed to test not only our security at one point in time, but also over a time period considered long enough to provide adequate assurance of compliance.
