GreyNoise Intelligence, the cybersecurity company analyzing internet scanning traffic to separate threats from background noise, today announced that it has achieved SOC 2 Type I compliance, in accordance with American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards for Systems and Organizational Controls (SOC). Achieving SOC 2 compliance with unqualified opinion serves as third-party industry validation that GreyNoise provides best-in-class enterprise-level security for its customers’ data. GreyNoise collects, analyzes, and classifies internet scanning traffic to separate malicious threats from background noise.
Rather than barraging security teams with alerts, GreyNoise helps to eliminate harmless activity by collecting, analyzing and labeling data on IP addresses that saturate security tools with noise. This unique approach helps security analysts waste less time on irrelevant alerts and focus instead on targeted and emerging threats. GreyNoise is trusted by Global 2000 enterprises, governments, top security vendors and tens of thousands of individual threat researchers.
SOC 2 is an auditing procedure that ensures 3rd party service providers are securely managing data to protect the interests of customers and the privacy of their clients. SOC 2 defines criteria for managing customer data based on five “trust service principles”—security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. The Type II SOC Report details the operational effectiveness of a vendor’s systems and certifies that they meet relevant trust principles.
An unqualified opinion on a SOC 2 Type I audit report demonstrates that GreyNoise manages customers’ data with the highest standard of security and compliance. “GreyNoise has always maintained a strong commitment to the information security and data integrity of its clients,” said Andrew Morris, Founder and CEO, GreyNoise Intelligence. “Our SOC 2 Type I Compliance will help to reassure our customers that we are taking all of the steps necessary to keep their data safe. The rigorous process of the SOC 2 audit helped us further codify and strengthen our security and data protection practices.”
