Unravel Earns Prestigious SOC 2 Security Certification

By: Yathi Shetty

Security is top of mind for every enterprise these days. There are so many threats they can hardly be counted, but one commonality exists: data is always the target. Unravel’s mission is to help organizations better understand and improve the performance of their data-based applications. We’re a data business, so we appreciate the scope and implications of these threats. That’s why we’re excited to announce that the Unravel Data platform has earned a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2, Type II certification.

The SOC 2 certification is the most rigorous and respected security certification any software platform can earn. The certification process is governed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). According to the organization, the SOC 2 certification is “intended to meet the needs of a broad range of users that need detailed information and assurance about the controls at a service organization relevant to security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems the service organization uses to process users’ data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems.” The SOC 2, Type II certification focuses on “management’s description of a service organization’s system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls.” This basically means, does a company have the right policies and procedures in place to keep its users safe from attacks and vulnerabilities and maintain their data privacy?

For Unravel to achieve this certification, independent auditor A-LIGN Assurance performed a thorough test of the product and examined the company’s operations to ensure Unravel has adequate safeguards to prevent or mitigate any security threats. The process was meticulous and comprehensive, taking several months to complete. Essentially, the SOC 2, Type II certification means that Unravel customers can rest assured knowing that our product is safe and that we take significant proactive measures to protect user data.
