Boston, MA - (August 19, 2021) – Fairwinds, the leading provider of Kubernetes governance and security software, today announced that the company has successfully completed its SOC 2 Type I audit. SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Service Criteria. SOC 2 audit reports focus on a Service Organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to Security of a system. The audit was conducted by Dansa D’Arata Soucia LLP (www.darata.com). In doing so Fairwinds maintains its adherence to one of the most stringent, industry-accepted auditing standards for service companies and provides additional assurance to its clients, through an independent auditor, that its business process, information technology and risk management controls are properly designed.
The official audit report provides a thorough review of Fairwinds internal controls, policies, and processes for its Fairwinds Insights software platform and managed services, which provides multi-cluster visibility into Kubernetes clusters so clients can ensure their applications are configured for scale, reliability, resource efficiency and security. It also reviews Fairwinds’ processes relating to risk management and subservice (vendor) due diligence, as well as the company’s entire IT infrastructure, software development life cycle, change management, logical security, network security, physical & environmental security, and computer operations.
"We are pleased that our SOC 2 report has shown that we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to the services we provide to our customers,” said Bill Ledingham, CEO of Fairwinds. “A critical part of the value we offer our clients is giving them guardrails and governance to simplify Kubernetes complexity. It only makes sense that we apply governance to our business operations, as well. Our team worked diligently to ensure we are, and will remain, SOC 2 Type 1 compliant.
Fairwinds provides software and managed services to help companies ship cloud native applications faster, more cost effectively and with less risk. With years of experience and thousands of customer production deployments, Fairwinds enables companies to confidently run containerized applications on production-grade Kubernetes infrastructure at scale.
