BigPanda successfully completed SOC 2 Type II audit and attestation.

The final report provides BigPanda’s enterprise IT customers with the assurance of corporate controls and processes relating to the security of its products and infrastructure, the availability of systems used to process data, and the confidentiality of information processed by the systems.

In addition to SOC 2 Type II compliance, the BigPanda platform features a robust set of enterprise-class security controls required by Fortune 1000 organizations. These include:

- End-to-end encryption. All customer data is encrypted at all times in BigPanda, in transit and at rest.

- User authentication. BigPanda customers can enforce their corporate security policies using SAML 2.0 compliant Single Sign On.

- Role based access control. RBAC is a flexible yet powerful mechanism to define user roles and associated permissions, thereby ensuring that every user sees only what he or she is entitled to access.

- Strict data segregation. BigPanda’s cloud-native, multi-tenant architecture is designed to strictly segregate both application and integration data from one customer organization to another.

- Physical security. BigPanda benefits from the scale of operations and security compliance of Amazon Web Services data centers which are ISO 27001, PCI and AICPA certified. The platform runs in multiple availability zones and backs up data across regions.

- Security audits. BigPanda continuously runs internal tests and audits, with any noteworthy issues addressed immediately. The company leverages infosecurity firm Include Security to perform complete vulnerability scans of the application on a regular basis.

The Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II is the widely recognized attestation standard issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) which measures a standardized set of security and data practice criteria, requirements and controls. Companies including publicly traded enterprises, financial firms and healthcare organizations have compliance requirements that require SOC 2 audits. BigPanda has committed to an annual review of these practices to ensure continued SOC 2 compliance, which is already underway for 2018.
