Digits Achieves SOC 2 Type 2 Certification: A Landmark in Data Security for AI Accounting

Security remains at the bedrock of our operations at Digits. From our partnership with the Financial Data Exchange, to launching Digits Connect, or becoming the first SOC 2 Type 1 compliant accounting AI platform, Digits is setting the standard for the secure and convenient access and sharing of permissioned financial data.

That’s why today we’re thrilled to announce that we have successfully attained SOC 2 Type 2 certification — underscoring our commitment to the highest standard of data security and compliance for our clients and partners.

What Is SOC 2 Type 2 Certification?

SOC 2, short for Service Organization Control 2, is a rigorous auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Type 2 certification goes beyond the initial impletation of focusing on five trust service principles: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy, by also evaluating the operational effectiveness of these controls over a defined period. Achieving Type 2 certification means that independent auditors have thoroughly reviewed Digits’ internal controls and verified their effectiveness in continuously protecting clients' data over a period of time.

Why SOC 2 Type 2 Matters And Startups Should Care?

Accounting is ripe with sensitive financial information — from how it’s stored, processed, and analyzed. Startups often operate on tight margins and depend heavily on their financial data for strategic decision-making, the assurance provided by SOC 2 Type 2 is indispensable.

For startups looking for accounting services, choosing a provider with SOC 2 Type 2 certification can be a game-changer. Every financial transaction, from daily bookkeeping to in-depth accounting reports, is conducted within a framework that prioritizes data security and operational efficiency. By opting for Digits, startups get more than just innovative AI accounting solutions; they gain peace of mind knowing their financial data is shielded by robust, independently verified security measures.
