Fortifying the digital frontier with NaaS

By Saurabh Jain, Principal Product Manager - NaaS

Many organizations rely on network data to make key business decisions, and ensuring data is securely managed is critical to these outcomes. System and  Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 certification is a rigorous framework for managing and securing sensitive information related to data privacy and security. It is defined by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and is designed for organizations that store customer information in the cloud. It goes beyond compliance, focusing on the effectiveness of security practices over time, ensuring that your data is consistently protected. With SOC 2 Type 2 certification, you can trust that the implementation has robust security measures to safeguard your information. SOC 2 Type 2 certification demonstrates the capabilities of a reliable and secure system along with a commitment to transparency, giving confidence to the users of the certified system.

Why is SOC 2 Type 2 certification important for your NaaS deployment?

Network data is part of any network-as-a-service (NaaS) deployment. Ensuring this data is securely managed is critical. For example, data based on valuable insights from your network inventory needs to be secure.  If NaaS deployment does not have SOC 2 Type 2 certification, it could have a costly impact and a detrimental effect on your business.  Additionally your customers and users demand secure access. Being SOC 2 Type 2 certified not only supports a reduction in costly security breaches, but it can also  reduce audit costs, supporting your overall organization’s risk and security posture.
