Securing app-to-app integrations for organizations, startup Astrix Security emerged from stealth five months ago and now it already has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 compliance audit. The compliance assessment, carried out by a Big Four auditing company, examined Astrix’s App-to-App Integration Security product along with all security controls and procedures, and discovered no flaws.
The security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy requirements of the trust principles are met by the organization’s information security methods and processes, according to this SOC 2 Type 2 certification. The audit would also confirm Astrix’s long-term adherence to crucial security rules in the context of today’s cyber threat scenario.
“We have always held ourselves to the highest standard of security, which is why we invested significant effort and resources into achieving this milestone, and we are proud to have done this so soon after our launch,” said Alon Jackson, CEO and Co-Founder of Astrix Security. “Receiving this certification demonstrates our ability to offer our customers the highest quality solutions to protect them from the sprawling new attack surface of app-to-app connectivity.”
$15 Million Funding Round
With a $15 million seed round headed by Bessemer Venture Partners and F2 Venture Capital, as well as participation from Venrock and several cybersecurity angel investors, Astrix was brought out of stealth in February 2022. Alon Jackson, the CEO, and Idan Gour, the CTO, co-founded Astrix to help businesses unleash the potential of automation and integration while continually connecting their vital systems to external software.
With zero-trust policies and automated enforcement guardrails, the agentless, “simple-to-deploy” solution would continuously reduce third-party exposure while giving cybersecurity teams comprehensive visibility into all of their app-to-app connections. It also instantly detects and mitigates integration threats.
“Successfully meeting the strenuous SOC 2 standards with zero exceptions listed is a momentous achievement for any company, let alone one that emerged from stealth just five months ago,” said Achiad Alter, Vice President Operations at Astrix. “Not only does it reflect Astrix’s top-notch solution, but it also recognizes our internal commitment to adhering to industry best practices from day one.”
As a fast growing company, Astrix Security was established in Tel Aviv in 2021 by CEO Alon Jackson and CTO Idan Gour, both veterans of the Israel Defense Forces’ 8200 military intelligence unit.
