That is exactly what happened to Swiftype at the beginning of 2017. While preparing for a public release of our latest product (Swiftype Enterprise Search), we understood that it was going to involve a lot of confidential information and we would need to be able to assure our customers of our capabilities to protect their data. In addition to the marketing aspect, there was a security angle to the problem as well: we were looking for a standard framework that could be used by our small team to ensure the safety of customer data, guiding us through the process. Based on those considerations, we decided to go through a formal SOC 2 certification. In this article, I will describe our journey towards the certification and our findings along the way.
