Data protection isn’t just an introductory video that everybody watches. It’s a consistent commitment to protecting sensitive information. That’s why Klenty is proud to announce that we are now SOC 2 Type 2 compliant.
As a sales engagement platform, we handle a lot of your sensitive information. From full names to email addresses, sometimes even personal interests, there’s a lot of trusts that’s been placed in us. Since we also link with your CRMs, that means that we also have access to whatever information that’s stored there, too.
A key part of sales is trust. Your prospects trust you and your stakeholders trust your organization. Similarly, you trust us to keep your data safe.
Receiving the SOC 2 Type 2 certification is just a part of our commitment to safeguarding your data and honoring the trust you’ve placed in us. It’s a dedicated commitment to you and a promise to continuously maintain and monitor our data protection systems.
What is SOC 2 Type 2?
There have been an increasing number of data breaches among corporations globally, ranging from Fortune 500 giants to entertainment powerhouses like Netflix. Keeping your company and stakeholders’ sensitive information protected is now paramount.
SOC 2 Type 2 is an internal controls report that evaluates how well a company protects customer data. It is used by companies that have cloud-based services to analyze and manage the risks associated with third-party services.
As a third-party audit, SOC 2 Type 2 is measured based on five trust service principles: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Rather than follow a rigid set of rules, SOC 2 adapts based on a company’s operations and handling of data.
Type 1 details what systems are in place within a company in line with these principles, while Type 2 determines how effectively these systems operate within a company.
As a sales engagement platform, Klenty handles sensitive data from multiple sources, which includes your CRM. With over 4,000 trusted users, it’s important that we safeguard this information appropriately.
How does Klenty protect your data?
As a sales engagement platform, we store a lot of your sensitive data. To protect this, we’ve employed a multi-pronged approach to protecting this sensitive information.
- Encryption: We follow secure methods and protocols when handling or transferring your data over public networks. Sensitive data is encrypted when housed in our databases.
- Monitoring: Our team regularly monitors and assesses our existing systems to identify potential security threats and takes the appropriate measures to address them.
- External checks: Not only do we conduct internal security checks, we also have external security experts conduct tests like penetration tests to further validate our security measures and fortify your data.
We received our SOC 2 Type 2 certification with the help of Vanta, a leader in compliance management and monitoring. With their help, we were able to automate the collection of our audit evidence and secure this certification.
Our commitment to data security is paramount. Klenty hopes to continue the best practices that have secured this certification to ensure that you continue to trust us in the future as well.
