SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fastly, the leading edge cloud platform, today announced that it has successfully completed its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 examination. The examination was conducted by Schellman & Company, LLC, and covers the Security and Availability principles within the Trust Services Criteria. Fastly’s SOC 2 examination applies to security and availability practices that cover its entire public network. This milestone fortifies the company’s commitment to a single, configurable platform that can accommodate a spectrum of customer compliance needs at scale.

The SOC 2 report is an attestation report that opines on controls at a service organization relevant to the security and availability of a system. A Type 2 report attests to the operation of those controls over a defined assessment period. SOC 2 reports help confirm a company’s dedication to comprehensive, relevant security policies and procedures, in order to safeguard the data that flows through its services. The addition of SOC 2 reports complements audits, attestations, and certifications that Fastly maintains for other applicable regulations and industry standards, including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Privacy Shield.

“Fastly has always upheld transparency and trustworthiness as company values, and our completion of the SOC 2 examination reinforces our commitment to our customers,” remarked Paul Luongo, Fastly’s Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “We view growing our information security and technology compliance programs as a key feature of our platform, and look forward to adding to our compliance portfolio in the future.”

Fastly’s edge cloud platform is an extension of customers’ critical infrastructure and data flows, and compliance is an essential component of the company’s continued expansion across new and existing markets. Fastly’s Security and Engineering teams, as well as other departments across the organization, continually iterate on the company’s security program to better meet growing customer needs, updated regulatory requirements, and the evolving security threat landscape.
