What is SOC 2 Compliance?

In short, SOC 2 is a voluntary compliance standard for technology companies with cloud-based products and specifies how an organization should manage customer data. Compliance with the guidelines set by the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) demonstrates an organization’s commitment to implementing effective controls and safeguards to protect customer data.

A SOC 2 Type 1 report evaluates the design and implementation of these controls at a specific point in time. It provides assurance to our customers and stakeholders that we have established necessary processes and controls to mitigate risks related to data security.

What SOC 2 Compliance Means to Us

As a leading IT asset management (ITAM) provider, Dots understands the critical importance of data security. By integrating with existing HR and ERP systems, we ensure a smooth flow of data while maintaining the highest standards of security.

Our SOC 2 Type 1 report reaffirms our commitment to safeguarding our customers’ sensitive information. Data security is our top priority, and our compliance demonstrates our dedication to meeting the industry’s most rigorous standards. We recognize the trust that our customers place in us, and we continually strive to uphold that trust by prioritizing the security of their data.

So What Exactly Gets Evaluated?

You may be wondering, what exactly is covered by the auditor in a SOC 2 Type 1 report? Our audit covered three key Trust Service Principles: Security, Availability, and Confidentiality relevant to the design of our controls. 

Our compliance partner helped tailor the relevant controls to our infrastructure, software, processes, people, and data, relating to:

  • Remote onboarding of employees
  • Cloud infrastructure security
  • Risk management
  • Multi-factor authentication
  • User access review
  • Threat detection
  • Change management procedures
  • Assets management
  • Data encryption
  • Secure development and more

As mentioned, we’ve built our solution around being SOC 2 compliant, but now we’re proud to have the “official” stamp that recognizes the design of our data protection controls.

We achieved SOC 2 compliance and received our report in a record-breaking time with clear colors, due to the fact that we had no prior security issues and there were very minor remediations needed. We are very proud of this result, as it is a testament to our high standards of controls and security standards.
