Edafio is SOC2 Type II

What is SOC 2 Type II Compliance?

SOC 2 Type II is an in-depth external audit presented in a comprehensive final report that closely examines a company’s information systems, ensuring that its information security practices meet five trust principles established by The American Institute of CPAs  (AICPA): security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Service Organization Control (“SOC 2”) certification awards organizations who demonstrate their ability to meet the institute’s high standards in each of those categories.

What is Measured by a SOC 2 Type II Report?

Ascend undergoes regular audits to ensure we meet each of the five trust principles’ requirements to remain SOC 2-compliant. SOC 2 Type II compliance evaluates information security policies and procedures. It audits a cloud service provider’s internal controls, capturing how a company safeguards client data and how well those controls operate. The report helps prospects and clients assess the risks associated with third-party cloud services. It’s essentially the best way to know whether your data will be safe with a managed service provider. For a provider to meet SOC II compliance, they need to manage client data with the five Trust Categories top of mind:


Protects the company’s system against unauthorized access to meet its commitments and system requirements.


Makes the company’s system authorized for use as agreed upon in contracts with clients.

Processing Integrity

Guarantees the complete, accurate, trusted and timely processing of information.


Protects any information considered confidential with proper controls.


Handles any personal information per your company’s privacy notice.

The documentation allows the auditor to evaluate an up-to-date history of the company’s efforts around:

  • Data governance
  • Policies and procedures
  • Confidentiality, privacy, and service transparency
  • Change management
  • Service operations management
  • Information security
  • Data management
  • Physical security
  • Billing and reporting
  • Corporate health
