Symmetry Systems Achieves SOC 2 Type 2 Certification
Symmetry Systems, the industry’s first hybrid cloud data security posture management (DSPM) solution provider, announced it has successfully completed a Type 2 System and Organization Controls (SOC 2) examination for its flagship product, DataGuard.
The DataGuard Data DSPM platform provides unified visibility into data objects across all data stores, while also answering data security and compliance questions that traditional cloud security tools cannot. Prescient Assurance conducted the audit and found that Symmetry meets the SOC 2 Type 2 standards for the DataGuard product and operational maturity with zero exceptions.
Based on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)’s trust services criteria, the SOC 2 Type 2 compliance certification indicates that a solution meets the standards for trust service principles including security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy of customer data. By undergoing the SOC 2 examination process, Symmetry can provide additional information for customers to assess the quality of DataGuard’s security. A Type 2 report provides a description of a service organization’s system, the suitability of the design and the controls’ operating effectiveness during the audit.

“Security and Compliance are core parts of Symmetry’s values,” said Gopi Ramamoorthy, senior director of security and GRC engineering, Symmetry Systems. “Our team at Symmetry Systems continues to align its security and compliance posture towards changing technology infrastructure, compliance standards, and regulations. To achieve SOC 2 Type 2 compliance, we used DataGuard to implement and monitor multiple controls including data protection and access management. This certification is a testament to the strong security practices followed at Symmetry Systems, and the security automation provided by DataGuard.”
This achievement follows Symmetry Systems’ SOC 2 Type 1 in June and further fuels the company’s momentum in 2022. Last month, Symmetry Systems announced its Zero Trust Data Assessments, enabling organizations to identify weak spots in their data security strategies. Symmetry Systems also recently announced a partnership with Trace3 to expand DataGuard into new markets.
