Cybersecurity Startup ActZero Certified as SOC 2 Type II Compliant

ActZero

ActZero, a cybersecurity startup that helps small and mid-sized businesses protect their organizations, customers, and partners against cybersecurity threats, announced today that it has been third-party certified as Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II compliant by Linford & Company LLP. This certification confirms that ActZero achieved the American Institute of CPA’s Trust Services Criteria for Security, Availability, Confidentiality, Processing Integrity, and Privacy.

SOC 2 is a technical audit designed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), and Type I evaluates and affirms that adequate information systems and security processes are in place at a specific point in time, while Type II certifies effectiveness over a longer duration. To be deemed compliant, providers must follow strict security policies and procedures, which are then validated by an independent third party. After announcing its successful completion of the SOC 2 Type I audit in 2021, ActZero has now passed the next level of security and compliance, confirming that ActZero’s security and compliance controls have been effective for the past year.

“ActZero was built with a focus on data security and privacy, and you don’t have to just take our word for it, thanks to this rigorous certification,” said Chris Finan, Chief Operations Officer of ActZero. “Achieving certification of our SOC 2 Type II compliance is an outstanding validation that our security best practices are delivering the results our customers and partners expect and deserve.”

SOC 2 is a natural outcome of the company’s cybersecurity efforts. In addition to SOC 2 Type II completion, ActZero continues to maintain compliance with other federal and state data privacy requirements, including GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA.
