When we set out to launch BigAnimal, security was top of mind. EDB has worked with enterprises of various sizes for a long time and we know that, as these enterprises move to the cloud, security is a vital requirement of theirs. Building on last year's SOC2 Type 1 compliance, we are excited to announce that we have now achieved SOC2 Type 2 compliance.
What is SOC2?
SOC2 is a security framework that specifies how organizations should safeguard customer data. It requires that an organization establish and implement internally-defined security policies and procedures that align with defined trust service criteria selected by the organization. EDB selected Security, Confidentiality and Availability as the relevant trust service criteria for BigAnimal.
SOC2 builds on BigAnimal’s security posture
SOC2 compliance builds on EDB’s key security features including data isolation, granular access through role-based access control and cluster-level permissions, encryption in-transit and at-rest, and audit logging both in the BigAnimal portal and individual databases. See our documentation for more information on our security posture. SOC2 is a team effort, and, as we expand our compliance certifications, we will apply the controls we adhere to even more broadly.
