We are pleased to announce that Digité is now SOC 2 compliant. Some might consider security compliance as only a checkbox that needs to be ticked. However, Digité takes security seriously. Since technology has been evolving rapidly and more assets keep getting digitized, we believe that security is of utmost importance for our customers and the organization to protect their information and our infrastructure. Security compliance ensures that the organization has the right set of security controls enabled and verifies via an audit that those controls have been appropriately implemented. In this blog, we would like to share our journey of achieving SOC 2 and our vision ahead from a security perspective.
What is SOC 2 Compliance?
SOC 2 specifies how organizations should manage customer data. The standard is based on the following Trust Services Criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. A SOC 2 report is tailored to the unique needs of each organization. Depending on its specific business practices, each organization can design controls that follow one or more principles of trust. These internal reports provide organizations and their regulators, business partners, and suppliers with important information about how the organization manages its data. As you can see, getting compliant is a big step for us for a few reasons.
Fast track on compliance
Digité achieved its compliance earlier than the specified timeline. The team’s tremendous efforts and management support lead to a speedy journey towards attaining the SOC 2. Although we had to improve our existing policies and enable the required controls, our teamwork made the journey possible.
Practicing what we Preach
SwiftKanban worked as a backbone and motivation for “Getting Things Done”, we used it to track action items, prioritize, and burndown our backlog in an agile way. Here is a glimpse of our Kanban board:

Meeting Standards Expected by Large Organizations
Digité’s infrastructure products are used by companies of all sizes, from startups to large enterprises. SOC 2 compliance represents a crucial step in our enterprise customer checklist for products. This milestone will enable us to work with many more large organizations without forcing them to create exceptions.
Offering Peace of Mind
We strive for best practices in everything we do at Digité throughout all lines of our organization. That said, it’s incredibly helpful to get an outside opinion on those practices. Becoming SOC 2 compliant confirms our adherence to certain important criteria and gives us further peace of mind that we are on the right track going forward.
