Cloud-ready Service for “Zero Trust” Environments Is Among the First Data Security Solutions to Pass Rigorous Trust Services Criteria

AUSTIN, TX - December 8th, 2020 - ALTR, developer of the most advanced data consumption governance and protection technology on the market, has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type II audit examination for its cloud-based Data Security-as-a-Service (DSaaS) solution. ALTR DSaaS received unqualified attestation that it meets or exceeds the most rigorous security, confidentiality, and availability principles.

SOC 2 compliance is a minimum security requirement for SaaS providers. Type II confirms the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of ALTR DSaaS according to exacting trust services criteria. As one of the first providers to offer data security and protection as a service, SOC 2 Type II compliance is an assurance to customers that ALTR DSaaS safely operates in cloud environments. It is also a predicate that sets ALTR apart from endpoint and perimeter security models which were not built for the cloud era.

“ALTR is deeply committed to safeguarding the sensitive data our customers and partners entrust by using our product,” said Dave Sikora CEO at ALTR. “Successful completion of this SOC 2 Type II evaluation demonstrates that our rigorous controls and processes adhere to uncompromising standards. As one of the few data security companies working in a cloud environment to complete a SOC 2 examination, we see this as an assurance that we are operating according to the highest principles of trust. Adding to ALTR’s existing PCI DSS Level 1 and HIPAA compliance, our SOC 2 Type II certification further reflects our unwavering commitment to our customers and partners.”

ALTR DSaaS is the world’s first, cloud-native data consumption governance service. ALTR helps companies observe and secure consumption of sensitive data at the SQL layer stopping credentialed access threats and SQL injection attacks at the source. ALTR enables powerful data security capabilities, delivered as a service, across the entire modern data architecture from isolated applications to the data cloud.

SOC 2 engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) AT-C 205, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization and based on the trust service principles outlined in the AICPA Guide, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy.
