Sync Computing designs our application to be highly available and leverages Cloud Service Provider (CSP) technologies to attain availability objectives. Some of the CSP technologies that Sync Computing leverages are redundant storage, content distribution networks, auto-scaling technologies, and others.


Sync Computing’s SOC2 Status

Sync Computing has obtained our SOC2 Type 1 Report for the Security, Availability, and Confidentiality Trust Services Criteria.

Sync will then begin a SOC2 Type 2 reporting period and actively work towards a SOC2 Type 2 report delivery later in 2024 with the same Trust Services Criteria.\

What is SOC2?

Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts (AICPA), a SOC 2 Report confirms the results of a comprehensive audit that focuses on the system-level controls that process customer data.

SOC 2 reports cover the design and documentation of controls and provide evidence of how the organization operated the documented controls over an extended period of time for a given point in time.

What is the difference between SOC 2 Type1 and Type2 reports?

There are two different types of SOC 2 reports.

A SOC 2 Type 1 report describes a service provider’s systems and whether the system is suitably designed to meet relevant trust principles.

A SOC 2 Type 2 report details the operational effectiveness of those systems and includes a historical element that shows how controls were managed by a business over a period of time.\

Why SOC2 for Sync Computing?
