Ensuring Data Security: Brightmetrics’ Commitment to SOC 2 Compliance
As a leading provider of SaaS analytics and reporting for Mitel, Genesys, and RingCentral contact center and unified communications platforms, Brightmetrics is committed to safeguarding our customers’ data and ensuring the security of our platform. To underscore this commitment, we recently completed a rigorous SOC 2 Type 2 audit with A-lign, a renowned independent auditor specializing in assessing security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls.
What Is SOC 2 Compliance?
Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 reports hold global recognition and serve as a formal confirmation that a company’s infrastructure, software, personnel, data, policies, procedures, and operations have undergone a thorough evaluation.
The SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls 2) audit is a comprehensive examination of a service organization’s asset security, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls. It is a voluntary audit, but its importance is on the rise, particularly for businesses dealing with sensitive data and those collaborating with SaaS companies that store data in the cloud.
Why Brightmetrics Pursued SOC 2 Compliance
Brightmetrics decided to undergo a SOC 2 audit for several key reasons:
- To show our unwavering commitment to security and compliance for the benefit of our customers.
- To provide our customers with the highest level of assurance that their data remains safe and secure while using our platform.
- To align with the data security needs of our customers and partners.
What SOC 2 Compliance Means For Our Customers
When a company achieves SOC 2 compliance, it signifies that they have implemented robust security and compliance controls to protect customer data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. At Brightmetrics, SOC 2 compliance serves as a testament to our dedication to continuous improvement. We regularly review our security and compliance controls, making necessary adjustments to maintain SOC 2 standards.
Here are the specific benefits that SOC 2 compliance brings to Brightmetrics customers:
