Aryaka Has Successfully Completed SOC 2 and ISO 27001 Recertification Audits

Aryaka®, the leader in fully managed SD-WAN and SASE, announced today that the company recently completed their System and Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) Type II and ISO 27001 recertification audits without observations. This highlights Aryaka’s strong commitment to security and state-of-the-art compliance, starting with the SOC 2 Type 2 report in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020 along with the ISO 27001 initial certification in 2020.

ISO 27001 provides a framework for companies to manage their data security and establishes requirements for information controls to manage people, processes, and technology. The standard covers both the technological aspects of security as well as corporate security, physical security, etc., and relies on regular risk assessments enabling a company to consistently identify and treat security threats. ISO 27001 is accepted worldwide as an assurance that proper and continual measures have been taken to protect valuable company data.

The SOC audit evaluated the security controls within Aryaka to ensure protection against unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure of information and damage to systems. In addition, the SOC audit tested these controls to certify that they operate effectively to achieve the promised service level commitments and system requirements. The ISO 27001 provides the information security governance framework on top of which other standards and security controls are built.

“These audits are an effective way to show our current and potential customers the level of commitment Aryaka has in the area of security. It challenges our organization to focus on continuous improvement and service excellence,” says Edward Frye, Chief Information Security Officer of Aryaka. “Security and customer trust form the foundation of Aryaka’s success. Therefore, we must demonstrate our commitment to the highest level of security through continuing recertification audits.”
