Agorapulse: SOC2 Compliant & Serious About Data Security
Because we put the privacy and security of your data first, we've taken the necessary steps to ensure that we’re SOC 2 compliant.
What Does SOC 2 Compliant Mean?
SOC 2, which stands for Systems and Organization Controls 2, is a voluntary compliance standard that specifies how an organization should manage the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of its customer's data.
For an organization to be SOC 2 compliant they need to prove that they have security controls in place to prevent malicious attacks, and the unauthorized deletion, misuse, alteration, or disclosure of its customer’s private information.
How Did Agorapulse Become SOC 2 Compliant?
We worked with Vanta, a leading security and compliance platform, to become SOC 2 compliant. Together, we successfully passed a series of on-site audits to prove that our internal information systems and controls met the strict SOC 2 compliance requirements. Some of the security controls that were audited included:
- Intrusion detection
- Security incident handling
- Network/application firewalls
- Two-factor authentication
- Performance monitoring
The SOC 2 audits were designed to test our security and information systems and allow us to prove that we have the ability to protect your data from cyber attacks, breaches, and other malicious activity.
Why did Agorapulse become SOC 2 compliant & what does this mean for you, as an organization?
The ongoing development of new technology and the increase in the number of people working from home means that personal information and sensitive data are now more exposed to breaches and malicious attacks than ever before. Cybercriminals are becoming better and better at hacking into accounts, stealing data, and using it for unlawful purposes. As a third-party vendor, we take cyber crime incredibly seriously and are doing everything in our power to make sure that your data is protected, at all costs.
Becoming SOC 2 compliant gives both you and us reassurance that while your data is in our care, we have watertight security controls in place to keep it safe and secure at all times.
