NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Datadog, the essential monitoring service for modern cloud environments, today announced the availability of its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2, Type II report. Compiled by Coalfire, the report documents how Datadog’s information security practices, policies, and procedures are suitable to meet the SOC 2 trust principles criteria for security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality.
As companies increase their usage of outside vendors to perform activities that are core to their business operations and strategy, there is a need for the highest level of trust and transparency into cloud service providers’ operations, processes, and results.
Datadog’s SOC 2 Type II report verifies the existence of internal controls which have been designed and implemented to meet the requirements for the security principles set forth in the Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity and Confidentiality. The Type II report not only concerns the policies and procedures in place at a point in time, but validates their effectiveness over a 6 month period. This independent validation of security controls is crucial for customers in highly regulated industries.
“Completing and distributing SOC 2 reports is indicative of our commitment to transparency in our security efforts,” said Andrew Becherer, Datadog’s Chief Security Officer. “By having our SOC 2 Type II report finalized, we are demonstrating to our thousands of customers and industry partners that we are committed to their diverse compliance requirements.”
In addition to SOC 2 compliance, Datadog is continuing to improve the state of security in DevOps environments through industry collaboration on internal efforts and an increasing number of security-oriented integrations.
