Strike is now SOC 2 Type II compliant

Strike is now SOC 2 Type II compliant

At Strike we implement the best security and privacy standards for our clients. That's why we underwent the SOC 2 Type II audit, following an extensive process by Prescient Assurance LLC. This is a guarantee of trust and service quality, fostering confidence in the market and further solidifying our position.

In turn, this represents a complement to our recent HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) badge.

What is a SOC 2 Type II audit?

As SOC means “Service Organization Control”, it represents a standard of security and confidentiality that is designed for service organizations, specifically those that have contact with their clients’ data.

So if a company is SOC 2 Type II compliant, it means that it has the tools and protocols in place to safely handle its data. That's what Strike was always about, and now its guaranteed by an international audit.

Unlike the SOC 2 Type I audit, this type of report -which requires six months of monitoring to get the necessary documentation- is more comprehensive and reliable for our clients.

This documentation demonstrates that the provider complies with at least one of the five principles of trust: Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality and Privacy.

And what do they mean exactly?

1. Security: Ensuring client data is stored securely and preventing unauthorized access.

2. Availability: Maintaining continuous reliability of services and preventing outages.

3. Confidentiality: Safeguarding confidential information.

4. Processing Integrity: Maintaining the integrity of client data, ensuring timely and authorized processing.

5. Privacy: Managing the retention, storage, and disposal of personal information.

How Strike got the SOC 2 Type II badge

As mentioned, SOC 2 Type II is an audit process that ensures a company has the necessary measures to maintain the security, confidentiality and privacy of data.

Given that we provide high-quality cybersecurity to all types of companies, much of this path was already paved: from day one we made sure all our processes were secure.

The first thing we did was look for a partner who could help us reduce the time for audit preparation: Vanta. Through Vanta, we streamlined the process by automating the collection of up to 90% of the evidence we need to prove our compliance.

Then we formed a multidisciplinary team within the company to execute the necessary tasks to achieve the audit. After that, we proceeded with the gap analysis to identify what was missing and assigned owners for each task.

Why obtaining SOC 2 Type II is a milestone

Having the SOC 2 Type II badge is an additional milestone to demonstrate to our clients how we care for data and processes. This will result in our clients and potential customers having more confidence in us and also opening up new markets.

In summary, acquiring this badge empowers us to instill even greater confidence and security in our valued clients.
