Automox Achieves SOC 2 Type 2 Certification Ensuring Secure Endpoint Management From the Cloud
Automox, the cloud-native endpoint hardening platform provider, announced the successful completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 audit of their organization. This third-party audit confirms Automox’s commitment to cybersecurity best practices that keep its customers’ data secure.
Schneider Downs & Co., Inc, a third-party independent CPA, provided an engagement report that demonstrated satisfactory alignment with “Trust Services Principles” standards as defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) after auditing Automox over the period of January 1, 2020 through July 31, 2020.
Automox Director of Information Security and Research, Chris Hass noted, “Moving at scale requires organizational alignment and commitment to industry best practices and standards. Automox is experiencing tremendous growth and while we strive for a robust security program, by obtaining SOC 2 Type 2 compliance today, our partners and customers alike are reassured of our continued commitment to secure not just their systems, but ours as well.”

Automox previously received SOC 2 Type I certification in 2019, which demonstrated Automox aligned to Trust Services Principles on a point-in-time basis. SOC 2 Type 2 is a more involved process than Type 1 certification which is conducted over a six-month period at a minimum. Because the SOC 2 Type 2 certification is over an extended period of time, this certification provides a broader more accurate viewport invalidation of consistent cybersecurity processes and effective controls in safeguarding customer data. Automox CEO and Founder Jay Prassl noted, “Platform security is one of our core development principles here at Automox. Obtaining our SOC 2 Type 2 adds a layer of confidence for security teams and auditors in some of our largest customers around the world and proves our ability to proactively protect against internal cyber threats.”
