Datadog, a monitoring service for cloud-scale applications, bringing together data from servers, databases, tools, and services to present a unified view of an entire stack, has announced the availability of its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 report.
Compiled by Veris Group RA, the report documents how Datadog’s information security practices, policies, and procedures are suitable to meet the SOC 2 trust principles criteria for security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality.
Datadog’s SOC 2 report verifies the existence of internal controls which have been designed and implemented to meet the requirements for the security principles set forth in the Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security. It would provide a thorough review of how Datadog’s internal controls affect the security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality of the systems it uses to process users’ data, and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems. This independent validation of security controls would be crucial for customers in highly regulated industries.
“Completing and distributing SOC 2 reports is a demonstration of Datadog’s commitment to transparency in our security efforts,” said Andrew Becherer, Datadog’s Chief Security Officer. “This is an important step in our continuing efforts to satisfy the varied compliance requirements of our diverse customers and industry partners.”
In addition to SOC 2 compliance, Datadog is continuing to improve the state of security in DevOps environments through industry collaboration on internal efforts and an increasing number of security-oriented integrations.
