This comes into effect into ensuring compliance early on with industry standards such as SOC 2 Type II, but also taking the extra mile to ensure security is embedded into everything we do. We have certifications, processes, and audits in place to ensure security, uptime, and deliverability. These certifications, penetration testing summaries, etc. are available upon request for Valence customers.
To ensure our platform could be trusted by global security teams, we ensured that from day 1, our Valence SaaS mesh security platform was built with high security standards and a security mindset. Therefore, Valence completed a SOC 2 Type II attestation which was performed by external auditors and periodically assessed to ensure ongoing compliance.
The SOC 2 Type II compliance ensures that Valence’s risk management, software development and security practices meet AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality or Privacy.
