Company reaffirms its commitment to security and availability to meet enterprise client requirements
SAN MATEO, Calif. – June 1, 2017 – SignalFx, the leader in monitoring & operational intelligence for the cloud, today announced the availability of its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 report. The document highlights the procedures and operating effectiveness of controls SignalFx has put in place relating to security and availability, process integrity, and privacy – both of which are based on the company’s deep expertise as a Software as a Service (SaaS) provider to enterprise organizations.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) established the SOC guidelines to provide an authoritative benchmark for service organizations to demonstrate implementation of proper control procedures and practices related to security and availability. This Type 2 report, produced by independent auditor Schellman & Company, details the testing of the security and availability controls used in production at SignalFx. This type of independent validation should be a critical criteria for any organization considering an enterprise deployment of a SaaS solution.
“Successfully completing the SOC 2 Type 2 examination demonstrates SignalFx’s ongoing commitment to maintain a high level of security and availability across our service – both critical requirements for our enterprise clients,” said Phillip Liu, CTO and co-founder of SignalFx. “This is a crucial milestone in our continued pledge that our customers can trust us with data, and helps to ensure our service is available to those who rely upon it to manage their cloud applications.”
This milestone is the latest in a series of announcements made by SignalFx in recent months, as the company increases its value to enterprises undergoing digital transformation. In May, SignalFx issued general availability of its latest release, featuring new alerting capabilities that empower cloud operations teams to better monitor and manage cloud infrastructure, containers, and applications.
