The SOC 2 Type 2, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is the most widely recognized authoritative guide for providing a framework to organizations for documenting, obtaining independent validation, and publishing their information security policies and procedures. This means we can operate with a substantially higher level of assurance and operational visibility.
The purpose of this audit was to further validate our commitment to security, data safety, and client protection while also benefiting you by being a trusted partner.
It goes without saying that your data has always been secure with EduBrite. But now, it has been affirmed by an independent audit by A-Lign Assurance, a leading global professional services firm. We treat your data seriously and have now met the most rigorous standards set by the AICPA, GDPR, and US Privacy Shield.
In the words of EduBrite's Vice President Manish Gupta, "Maintaining the trust of our global customers in our platform and service is the single most important item in our policy, right from our inception. In the SaaS business, we are not only responsible for providing software, we are also providing 24x7 operations to our customers. This audit validates the completeness and effectiveness of the controls we have in place as a SaaS platform provider."
Our audit allowed us to explore ways to streamline our services and better understand the cybersecurity risks you face. As a result, we have further expanded our knowledge on being proactive for the future and efficient in maintaining security.
We believe reliability and the security of your data are the two foundational pillars for our success. By successfully completing our SOC 2 Type 2 report, we add one additional new tool to prove our data security commitment.
"With the independent 3rd party SOC 2 Type 2 audit, we have fully validated our technology, business processes, and operational controls to give our existing and future customers full confidence in our service," said Chief Executive Officer Ajay Upadhyaya.
A SOC Type 2 audit is conducted using the five Trust Principles laid out by the AICPA. Those principles are:
Audits can cover anywhere from one principal to all five depending on the services covered by the company. For example, our audit covered security and availability. As a result, you can trust that our priorities align with yours and that you chose the right partner for your LMS.
As a privately held technology startup headquartered in Silicon Valley, California, with offices in India, we at EduBrite take so much pride in being able to provide a SaaS-based online Learning Management System platform enabling startups and corporations to create a fully branded corporate university for their employees, customers, and partners.
This achievement in completing the SOC 2 Type 2 audit is a demonstration of our commitment, not just to you but also to the highest level of security and protection of your data.
