SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SingleStore, the world’s fastest database for data-intensive applications, today announced that it has earned System and Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 designation. A recognized technical audit for service organizations, SOC 2 Type 2 requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures. This certification validates SingleStore as a trusted SaaS provider.
Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), the SOC 2 compliance framework is frequently used by software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies. The framework specifies five “trust service principles” for managing customer data, security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. A SOC 2 Type 2 report is an independent assessment detailing the operational effectiveness of a company’s security controls and procedures. Internationally recognized, it is a leading standard for SaaS companies and others handling sensitive data in the cloud.
“Our SOC 2 Type 2 certification demonstrates that SingleStore has met rigorous standards in information security and confirms that our products, services, and business operations meet user needs,” said SingleStore Head of Information Security Jake Bernardes. “As a company founded to manage complex data workloads for our customers, security is a core part of all that we do.”
The globally-recognized certification comes after months of hard work and an extensive audit. It validates SingleStore’s investments in its security program and signals the company’s ongoing commitment to developing and advancing the maturity of its security program.
The independent audit was conducted by A-LIGN, a leading security and compliance provider, which validated SingleStore’s stringent security and governance controls. Third-party validation of security controls is a critical consideration when selecting third-party vendors, especially for customers in regulated industries such as government, healthcare, life sciences, and telecommunications.
