Percepto Successfully Passes the SOC 2 Type II Audit
Data security and privacy has been a priority at Percepto since day one. And now we’re thrilled to announce we have successfully passed a SOC 2 Type II audit. In this blog post, we’ll explain what an SOC 2 Type II audit is and why it’s essential for any drone inspection program.
Automated drones collect and transmit enormous amounts of data, including images and videos of critical infrastructure. Since these drones have become integral components of critical workflows, ensuring data security has become a top priority for both government and enterprise stakeholders. Any company that utilizes drones for inspection and monitoring must have robust security measures in place to protect sensitive data and intellectual property, as well as prevent unauthorized access to systems and physical sites. Data security is also needed in order to maintain compliance with legal requirements and foster trust with clients.
As a drone industry leader, Percepto has consistently emphasized data security and privacy both internally and for customers. That commitment was recognized several months ago when we received ISO 27001, and successfully passing a SOC 2 Type II audit is yet another milestone in our commitment to data security compliance.
What is an SOC 2 Type II audit?
SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls) is an audit based on standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The audit assesses how companies store and manage customer data and includes a comprehensive evaluation of their security processes.
Percepto was audited by Ernst and Young (EY) who confirmed that we meet all standards for SOC 2 Type II, including access controls and reviews, software development, network and platform monitoring, vendor risk management, security and compliance monitoring, and more.
Why is SOC 2 Type II auditing important?
Working with a SOC 2-audited provider like Percepto gives drone program managers and IT personnel an additional layer of assurance that sensitive data will be safely stored and managed and that the infrastructure, tools, and processes they implement will meet the highest data protection standards in the industry.
Percepto’s success in the SOC 2 Type II audit underscores our unwavering commitment to data security and customer trust. By subjecting ourselves to such rigorous external auditing and evaluation, we have demonstrated our dedication to safeguarding sensitive data.
As drones continue to play an essential role in critical workflows, Percepto’s data security compliance sets a benchmark for the industry, ensuring a safer and more secure environment for all stakeholders involved in drone operations.
