What is SOC II, Type 2?

SOC II, Type 2 is a certification developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) that sets the highest standard for how companies manage and secure customer data. 

  • SOC stands for Service Organization Control. It’s a set of criteria designed to help service organisations, like cloud-based (SaaS) software companies, establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures.
  • SOC II is based on five “trust service principles”:
    • Security,
    • Availability, 
    • Processing integrity, 
    • Confidentiality, and 
    • Privacy. 

These principles ensure that a system is secure, available as promised, processes data accurately, keeps confidential information protected, and maintains the privacy of personal information.

  • There are two types of SOC II reports:
  • Type 1 focuses on the suitability of a company’s system design at a specific point in time 
  • Type 2 goes further. It assesses the operational effectiveness of those systems over a period, typically six months or more. This means that a company with SOC II, Type 2 compliance not only has good security practices in place but also consistently applies these practices over time.

We chose Apicbase because it is a SaaS solution that thinks with us in solving complex business challenges. It’s a strong partnership.

How Apicbase Maintains Security Standards

Two independent ISO-certified companies monitor our systems.

  • Vanta is an automated compliance monitoring tool that continuously scans our systems and processes to ensure adherence to industry standards and best practices. It functions like a real-time compliance dashboard, offering insights into our security posture and identifying gaps or areas for improvement.
  • Insight Assurance steps in as an expert auditing partner, leveraging the extensive data gathered by Vanta. It conducts a detailed analysis, verifying the accuracy of Vanta’s findings and providing an independent assessment of our compliance status. This collaboration results in a nuanced understanding of Apicbase’s security and compliance landscape, enabling us to address vulnerabilities proactively and maintain a robust compliance framework.
