We are thrilled to announce that ARMO, the makers of Kubescape and ARMO Platform, has successfully obtained the SOC 2 certification. This achievement underscores ARMO’s unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest standards of security, privacy, and operational excellence for its customers and users. With the SOC 2 certification, ARMO demonstrates its dedication to safeguarding customer data and fortifying trust in its platform.

What is SOC 2 certification?

SOC 2 (Service Organization Control 2) is a widely recognized certification that evaluates a company’s security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls. Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), the SOC 2 framework is designed to assess the effectiveness of an organization’s systems and processes in managing and protecting customer data. Achieving SOC 2 compliance is a rigorous process that involves comprehensive audits and assessments conducted by independent third-party auditors.

Why should you care that ARMO is now SOC 2 certified?

Obtaining the SOC 2 certification is a significant milestone for ARMO, as it assures our customers and users that the company adheres to the highest security and privacy standards. This certification demonstrates ARMO’s ongoing commitment to protecting customer data and maintaining the integrity of its cloud workload protection platform.

As Shauli Rozen, ARMO’s co-founder and CEO, puts it: 

“Aligning ourselves with the well respected SOC 2 framework at such an early stage of the company shows that not only are we supporting other companies in achieving a high level of security, but that we hold ourselves to the same high standards.”

Key benefits of SOC 2 certification

Enhanced Data Security: SOC 2 certification validates ARMO’s dedication to implementing robust security controls and practices to safeguard customer data. It ensures that stringent measures are in place to prevent unauthorized access, data breaches, and other security incidents.

Increased Customer Trust: Achieving SOC 2 compliance instills confidence in customers, reassuring them that ARMO’s services meet industry best practices for security and privacy. It demonstrates a commitment to transparency and accountability when it comes to handling sensitive information.

Compliance with Regulatory Requirements: SOC 2 certification helps ARMO align with regulatory frameworks and industry-specific compliance standards, such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

Continuous Improvement: The SOC 2 certification process involves regular assessments and audits, which encourage ongoing improvement and refinement of security controls and practices. ARMO’s commitment to maintaining the certification ensures that security measures are continually updated to mitigate emerging threats and risks.
