SAN FRANCISCO, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hustle, the leading peer-to-peer relationship platform used by political campaigns, advocacy organizations, universities and international enterprise clients alike, announces today it has achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance. Hustle is proud to announce its first annual SOC2 report is a "clean report," meaning no exceptions or compliance issues were noted.
SOC 2 Type II attestation is regarded as the gold standard in data protection for software-as-a-service companies. Audits are rigorous and extensive, requiring companies to undergo intensive review by outside auditors over a quarter. This audit focused on Hustle's data protection and security measures, availability and scalability; as well as hiring and legal practices. Hustle now joins a security-forward and operationally mature group of SaaS vendors aligned with SOC 2 principles, a group accounting for less than one percent of SaaS vendors overall.
Hustle is additionally now a Cloud Security Alliance CSA STAR Registered provider. Hustle's CSA STAR report describes its numerous layers of security, including penetration tests, vulnerability scans, and an active bug bounty program.
"Hustle goes the extra mile to protect its customer data by continuously testing its application, rather than relying on a point in time security test," said Mårten Mickos, CEO of HackerOne, the leading provider of hacker-powered security. "We are proud to contribute to Hustle's SOC 2 compliance."
"Hustle's use of the Tenable.io platform demonstrates how Hustle goes above and beyond maintaining SOC2 Type II compliance by effectively using best-in-class tools to evaluate and enhance their security posture," says Amit Yoran, Chairman and CEO of Tenable Network Security.
Hustle's Director of Security, Will Pizzano, CISM says, "We take our commitment to privacy protection extremely seriously, and our world-class information security program is rooted in our core company value of respect. Our SOC 2 compliance provides independent validation of the great deal of respect we show in protecting our customers' data."
