Horangi Gains SOC 2 Type II Certification

The newly acquired SOC 2 certification further bolsters Horangi's CREST-accredited cybersecurity consulting services and Gartner-recognised Warden cloud security platform

Horangi has successfully earned SOC 2 Type II Compliance and Certification, making it one of the first cybersecurity companies in Asia to do so.

Horangi CertificationThis is a testament to Horangi’s ongoing dedication to advancing its security program and reaffirms its commitment to meeting trust services criteria in information and data security.

Paul Hadjy, CEO and Co-founder, Horangi, said: “Attaining the SOC 2 Type II certification demonstrates Horangi’s dedication to meeting the most rigorous security and confidentiality standards at a time where data breaches and misuse are prevalent. We developed more than twenty policies and implemented new procedures and tools, enhancing our monitoring and security management capabilities according to the stringent prerequisites of the SOC 2 certification. It has been an intense but fruitful year-long endeavor for the Horangi team, and we remain committed to enhancing our services in alignment with evolving industry requirements.”

“The best practices are built into our daily operations, throughout every team from the technical team to people operations, enabling us to achieve optimal security outcomes for organizations we serve. Constant innovation in alignment with best-in-class practices has been a key facet of our growth strategy, and will continue to drive our success as a cloud security leader in Asia,” added Hadjy.

Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), the SOC 2 compliance framework is internationally recognized as the gold standard for security compliance for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies.

It requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures encompassing the security, availability, and confidentiality of customer data. Horangi identified shortfalls and introduced the fundamental changes required to strengthen the necessary security controls.

Certification involves a technical auditing process that validates internal control policies and practices, ensuring the organization is operating under SOC 2 standards.

The newly acquired SOC 2 certification further bolsters Horangi’s CREST-accredited cybersecurity consulting services and Gartner-recognised Warden cloud security platform after the company was inducted into programs by Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) earlier in the year.

Horangi leveraged its flagship cloud security platform, Warden, to manage configurations, Identity and Access Management (IAM), and potential vulnerabilities for the deployment of these new policies and procedures.
