Visual search query image

Data security has always been at the forefront of our work at CTERA. It’s ingrained into our software development lifecycle (SDLC) from the very beginning, which is why I’m proud to announce that we have once again achieved our SOC 2 Type II certification. The rigorous independent audit conducted by one of the “Big Four” accounting firms (not a process to be taken lightly by any means), validates our unwavering commitment to rolling out secure, high-quality software that safeguards our clients’ critical data.

What SOC 2 Means for You

This certification translates to several key benefits for you, our valued clients:

  • Unwavering trust: The SOC 2 audit shines a light on our internal controls over security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.

  • Proactive risk management: The process isn’t simply a one-time assessment; it’s an ongoing evaluation. To that end, we consistently and proactively identify and mitigate potential security risks throughout the software development lifecycle, ensuring your data remains protected non-stop.

  • Enhanced security posture: Achieving and maintaining SOC 2 compliance pushes us to continuously improve our security posture. The audit process identifies areas for improvement, and we ensure we address those swiftly.

  • Regulatory compliance: SOC 2 compliance is often a requirement for organizations in regulated industries, which means which CTERA, you gain total peace of mind knowing you’re adhering to the highest industry standards.

Beyond SOC 2: Our Multi-Layered Security Approach

Our commitment to security extends far beyond just the SOC 2 certification. We hold several other certifications, including FIPS 140-2 and DoDIN APL, all of which go even further toward solidifying our position as a leader in data security.

Here’s a mere glimpse of what’s involved in our robust security program:

  • Rigorous vulnerability scanning: Our software undergoes regular vulnerability scans throughout the development process and even after deployment, ensuring potential weaknesses are identified and addressed promptly.

  • Meticulous code reviews: Every line of code our developers write undergoes multiple code reviews by senior engineers, identifying and fixing potential security flaws before they ever reach production.

  • Continuous security audits: We don’t just meet security standards, we exceed them, with regular internal and external security audits to ensure our defenses remain strong and adapt to evolving threats.

At CTERA, we’ve undergone the rigorous SOC 2 audit process yearly since 2021, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to being a trusted partner in data security. While the SOC 2 certification is a significant milestone, it’s just one part of our comprehensive security strategy to ensure your data is always safe and secure.
