From day one we set out to become the go-to vendor for enterprise-grade Argo CD as a managed service. As a part of this effort we want to make sure our current and future customers are able to trust our platform and the company building it. This is why we’re happy to announce that we have completed the procedures connected to obtaining the SOC 2 Type 2 compliance!
A SOC 2 Type 2 Report is a Service Organization Control (SOC) audit on how a cloud-based service provider handles sensitive information - covering both the suitability of a company’s controls and its operating effectiveness.
There are two stages of achieving SOC 2 certification: SOC 2 Type I and SOC 2 Type II. We went straight for Type 2 which includes reporting on the current security rules (systems and controls) and reviews documents around these rules. The evidence of rules effectiveness is described and evaluated over time, for a minimum of 6 months, to see if the systems and controls in place are functioning continuosly.
Becoming SOC 2 certified as well as our last year’s effort to ensure that Argo’s security best practices are in place are important steps we took to make sure that we deliver top-notch services around a top-notch open source product which is used in production by the biggest and most-reliable companies in the Fortune 500.
Please let us know if you would like to access Akuity’s SOC 2 Type 2 Report and see how we can assist you in your Argo and GitOps journey by scheduling a call with our sales team.
