Announcing SOC 2 Type II certification πŸ”

We are delighted to announce that as of December 2021 Buddy has been certified as SOC 2 Type II compliant. After a comprehensive surveillance of systems and procedures conducted by independent auditors, the company's information security systems (ISMS) were officially acknowledged as compliant with the five provisions prepared by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA): security, availability, confidentiality, processing integrity, and privacy.

SOC 2 Type 2 confirms that Buddy has fulfilled the rigorous requirements described during the Type I certification in November 2020 – an official codification of the security-conscious culture that's been in Buddy's DNA since the very first release.

The systems and policies include:

  • Infrastructure and Software – penetration tests, access control, system monitoring, firewall and automated security checks, secure coding & deployment
  • People – background checks, employee onboarding, confidentiality, security awareness trainings
  • Policies and Procedures – disaster recovery, data backup, incident response processes
  • Data – source code protection, communication encryption, DPA, internal access control to production environments

The report is a proof of our ongoing commitment towards keeping high industry standards and responsibilities. Every time you entrust your code to Buddy – either by uploading your repositories to our source, synchronizing Buddy with your Git provider, or letting us deploy your awesome website to the server – we feel obliged to ensure that your work is safe and secure, so your business can grow and thrive undisturbed.

Just as we grow and thrive with you.
