Nightfall, a cloud-native data protection platform, today announced that it has successfully achieved Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 compliance. Nightfall is the first cloud-native data loss prevention vendor to complete this comprehensive certification and meet the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) criteria for managing customer data.
Nightfall is an enterprise-grade data protection platform that integrates directly with cloud applications including Slack, Google, GitHub, and Atlassian. Nightfall’s developer-centric detection engine leverages machine learning to help organizations protect sensitive data, including unstructured data like images in cloud environments.
Proper handling of sensitive data, including personally identifiable information (PII), payment card information (PCI), and credentials are critical assets and require secure management. By becoming SOC 2 Type 2 compliant, Nightfall emphasizes its commitment to securing its customer’s data and strong security practices. SOC 2 Type 2 consists of a thorough audit regarding the effectiveness of an organization’s internal controls and policies set by the AICPA and demonstrates completion that a company’s information security measures meet today’s cloud requirements.
“Keeping our customer’s information safe is our top priority at Nightfall and achieving the SOC 2 Type 2 certification reiterates our commitment to protecting sensitive data,” said Isaac Madan, chief executive officer of Nightfall.
