I’m excited to announce that Marker.io is officially a certified SOC 2 Type 2 company.
As a Marker.io customer, this news demonstrates how seriously we take the security and safety of your data.
This brings us one step closer to making our company and product ready to address the needs of enterprise customers.
What is SOC 2?
SOC 2 stands for Service Organization Control 2. It is a set of standard rules and guidelines for companies to be secure.
Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls) defines criteria for managing customer data based on five “trust service principles”—security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
It's the gold standard when it comes to data security and privacy, and it's a huge deal, especially for our enterprise customers.
Why is it important?
As a Marker.io customer, you can have the confidence that we adhere to strong processes and policies.
Because the audit is done by a 3rd party, it gives a stamp of approval on how we operate internally.
Who audited Marker.io?
An independent auditor, Insight Assurance, conducted a detailed examination to assess Marker.io’s compliance with data security, availability, and confidentiality standards developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Through this rigorous process, Insight Assurance confirmed that Marker.io adheres to these standards, thereby earning SOC 2 certification.
This achievement was realized by:
- Assessing the design and operating effectiveness of Marker.io’s controls
- Conducting thorough examinations of vendor and third-party security
- Establishing comprehensive policies to ensure ongoing protection for customers and employees
How do you ensure you maintain compliance?
We use a compliance software called Vanta that automates compliance and notifies when new risks occur.
