As Awair continues to make enhancements in security, SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance is the next phase in our process. The final report will be available during the first week in April.
Importance of Type 2
Since Awair’s founding, we have continued to pursue top-level data security practices. We want our customers to have peace of mind when they think about the privacy of their indoor air quality (IAQ) data. It should be available to those managing the buildings (employers, landlords, facilities, etc.) and the people accessing them. Sharing data, however, should not put other internal systems at risk. This is where SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance comes in: it details how companies, like Awair, safeguard company data and how well those controls are operating.
An independent auditor, Barr Advisory, conducted an audit of our servers and systems based on the standards and five trust principles set by AICPA. They will perform the audit annually and work with several large-scale technology companies, including SHI, Enseva, and C2FO.
Thanks for a collaborative effort, we have achieved compliance in the following areas:
We will continue to secure SOC 2 Type 2 reports on an ongoing basis, as well as perform penetration testing (pentesting) and support single sign-on (SSO). A copy of Awair’s SOC 2 Type 2 report is available to both prospective and current customers upon request.
Like teachers, classrooms play an incredibly important role in a student’s ability to learn and grow. If you’re a teacher getting ready for the new year, you’ve most likely invested time and money into preparing your classroom to make sure it fits the needs of you and your students to have a successful school year. Before class starts, there’s one thing we’d like to help you check: your classroom’s air.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that tens of billions of dollars are lost every year due to low office air quality impacting the health of office staff. The science of indoor air is so important that a report published by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health cited indoor air as one of the nine key foundations of a healthy office building.
