Exploros Attains SOC 2 Compliance: Upholding Partner Data Security

14 Mar, 2024

What is SOC 2 Compliance?
In short, SOC 2 is a voluntary compliance standard for technology companies with cloud-based products and specifies how an organization should manage customer data. The compliance guidelines set by the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) ensure services are secure, available, and confidential and that information security best practices are in place.

What SOC 2 Compliance Means to Us
Exploros is designed as an innovative tool for educators who aim to captivate and engage students through new teaching methods. From its inception, our platform has been developed with a strong emphasis on information security, adhering to the best practices in the field. This commitment ensures that Exploros offers a secure and dependable environment for educators.

Our SOC 2 report isn't about just checking another box. We have taken security and compliance very seriously from day one and so, our report is the official attestation that we comply with the globally-recognized information security standard.

So What Exactly Gets Evaluated?
Our SOC 2 audit covered four key Trust Service Principles: Security, Availability, Confidentiality, and Privacy, all of which are critically important for educational technology platforms. We understand that schools depend on our platform's availability and confidentiality for their daily operations, from lesson planning to monitoring student progress.

Scytale, a compliance automation and consulting company, helped tailor the relevant controls to our infrastructure, software, processes, people, and data, relating to:

  • Remote onboarding of employees
  • Cloud infrastructure security
  • Risk management
  • Multi-factor authentication
  • User access review
  • Threat detection
  • Change management procedures
  • Assets management
  • Data encryption
  • Secure development and more

As mentioned, we've built our platform around being SOC 2 compliant, but now we're proud to have the "official" stamp that recognizes our concrete data protection practices.

We achieved SOC 2 compliance and received our report in a record-breaking time because we had no prior security issues and there were very minor remediations needed. We are proud of this result, as it is a testament to our high standards of control and our focus on security.

This commitment is especially critical in the K-12 educational context, where protecting student information is not just a legal requirement but a moral obligation.

What’s Next?
