What is SOC 2?
SOC 2 reports assess the security of a company's services. Certification involves an audit by an independent AICPA-registered firm to verify if safety objectives are met. Such objectives assure customers of the company that are looking for strong security and compliance in their vendors.

As an update to our previous announcement, Eqo is excited to announce that we’ve received our SOC 2 Type II certification compliance in accordance with American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards for SOC for Service Organizations also known as SSAE 18.

Achieving this standard with an unqualified opinion serves as third-party industry validation that Eqo provides enterprise-level security for customer’s data secured in our system.

This certification validates our continuous effort and commitment to protecting the security of our customers’ data.

Eqo was audited by Prescient Assurance , a leader in security and compliance attestation for B2B, SAAS companies worldwide.

Why SOC 2 compliance matters

Our customers trust us with sensitive data about their organization. To receive certification, we designed and put in place more than 80 key security controls that address potential threats to the safety of our customers’ data. We then provided our auditor with evidence demonstrating those controls so they could independently decide if they were well-designed or not. To keep our certification, we’ll have to repeat the audit process in the future.

Eqo’s future plans for enhancing security

While this is an important step in our security journey, we will continue to improve the security posture of our company and software, so we can better serve our customers. At Eqo, protecting the security and confidentiality of the data customers’ entrust to us is part of our core values.

We have processes in place to identify and respond to new risks and threats, including assessing and improving our security measures on an ongoing basis. We will also explore additional security certifications based on the needs of our customers.
