In an era where data is the lifeblood of businesses, protecting it from unauthorized access and breaches is paramount. Businesses and their platforms have to adhere to the security standards set by industry, and constantly evolve with them. Shakudo understands the criticality of data security and privacy, which is why we're thrilled to announce our SOC 2 compliance certification.
System and Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) is a framework established by AICPA to assess an organization’s adherence to five key trust service criteria: security, confidentiality, availability, privacy, and processing integrity. It’s a rigorous standard that ensures comprehensive protection of sensitive data. Beyond achieving the service criteria, the maintenance of policies and practices over time are a crucial aspect to compliance.
At Shakudo, our data platform empowers data scientists, engineers, and DevOps teams to leverage cutting-edge technology securely. Our platform is designed with the SOC 2 principles in mind, ensuring adherence to these important criteria:
Security: Our platform implements robust security measures to safeguard data against unauthorized access or breaches. From encryption protocols to multi-factor authentication, we prioritize the highest standards of security to protect your information.
Confidentiality: Your data’s confidentiality is of utmost importance to us. We enforce strict controls to ensure that only authorized personnel can access information, data, and applications, preserving confidentiality at all times.
Availability: Shakudo ensures that your data is available whenever you need it. Our platform's architecture and infrastructure are designed to guarantee high availability, minimizing downtime and ensuring uninterrupted access to your data.
Privacy: Respecting and preserving the privacy of your data is a core value at Shakudo. We enable organizations to maintain stringent privacy controls, ensuring that data is used and accessed in accordance with your defined policies and regulations.
Processing Integrity: Data integrity is fundamental to trust. Our platform maintains the accuracy and completeness of your data throughout its lifecycle, ensuring that it’s processed reliably and without compromise.
At Shakudo, we are deeply committed to maintaining the highest standards of data security and integrity for our customers. In fact, our platform was designed around this concept — Shakudo itself is deployed as a Kubernetes cluster inside the customer’s cloud or on-prem infrastructure. This means there is no data egress, and every aspect of your data can be wrapped with user-level data and privacy controls.
Maintaining our SOC 2 compliance is not just a strategic investment in our brand — it aligns with our human values and company culture. Our continued compliance underscores our pledge to safeguarding your most valuable asset — your data.
