SOC 2 Compliance Software Solution

Monitor insider activity. Detect anomalies. Respond to incidents. ALL-IN-ONE

3 categories of SOC Reports


A report with a strong focus on financial controls that’s aimed at auditors


A detailed report focused on trust services criteria that can be shared with stakeholders


A brief report on trust services criteria that can be shared with the public

Each category of SOC report contains two types of reports:

  • Type 1 — Describes the overall suitability of the security rules (controls) in the organization at a particular date
  • Type 2 —Evaluates the operating effectiveness of implemented controls over a set period of time (usually up to a year)

While complying with SOC 2 isn’t mandatory, organizations usually aim to obtain an SOC 2 Type 2 report to gain customer trust and a competitive advantage — two major benefits of SOC 2 compliance.

Why is complying with SOC 2 important?

Let’s start with clarifying who needs SOC 2 compliance. An SOC 2 audit applies to any organization that stores customer data in the cloud. Achieving and maintaining SOC 2 compliance helps you ensure your organizational controls and practices are sufficient to effectively protect customer data. It also proves to your customers that your organization can maintain the needed level of information security.

What is SOC 2 compliance? You can approach SOC 2 in two ways:

  • As a requirement to establish and follow appropriate cybersecurity policies and procedures
  • As a technical audit that evaluates security controls implemented in your organization

Understanding SOC 2 trust services criteria

SOC 2 outlines five key criteria that distinguish trustworthy service providers:

SOC 2 trust services criteria



Processing Integrity



Security is the only trust criterion that must be included in every SOC 2 Type 2 report.

The processing integrity criterion aims to evaluate the ability of an organization’s systems to perform without critical errors or delays. To successfully implement this TSC, an organization needs to ensure that its data is processed accurately and only by authorized users and systems.

Correlation with other compliance requirements

As a result, organizations can significantly speed up and simplify the process of achieving SOC 2 compliance by only adopting the practices, tools, and procedures that are relevant to their operations and objectives.

When designing an SOC 2 compliance program, pay attention to the requirements of other IT regulations, laws, and standards that are relevant to your organization. SOC 2 TSCs are closely aligned with key cybersecurity regimes, including:
