Achieve and Demonstrate SOC 2 Compliance with Action1

Unlike more detailed and specific compliance standards and frameworks, such as PCI DSS or ISO 27001, SOC 2 has no definitive controls checklist. Instead, the AICPA provides guidelines in the Trusted Services Criteria and points of focus to structure each audit and help organizations implement controls. SOC 2 software from Action1 helps you establish, maintain and demonstrate compliance with Trust Services Criteria by automating vulnerability remediation, asset inventory, software management, and endpoint configuration and monitoring.

CC3.2, CC6.1, CC6.5, CC6.8, CC7.1 

Identify and manage the inventory of information assets, identify assets for disposal and prove anti-malware is in place 

Maintain up-to-date asset inventory

Risk assessment and risk management start with knowing your assets. Automate asset inventory and gain accurate real-time insights into software and hardware that the business relies on. Streamline regular reviews of software and hardware in use to verify these assets are authorized, consistently applied across appropriate endpoints, and continuously updated.

Protect assets from external threats, identify and remediate vulnerabilities, restore the environment after an incident while managing system changes appropriately 

Identify and remediate vulnerabilities 

Patch management is essential for achieving and maintaining SOC 2 compliance and ensuring the security and availability of an organization’s systems and data. 

Keep your OS and third-party applications up to date on the latest patches with compliance automation from Action1. Patch all servers and workstations consistently even if they are remote, not connected to a corporate VPN, not joined to a domain, or offline.

Demonstrate compliance

Prove to auditors that you have a working vulnerability remediation process in place that also follows SOC 2 change management principles with detailed reports on installed patches and patching history.

CC6.1, CC6.5, CC6.6, CC6.8 

Deploy authorized software only, follow a change control process, detect unauthorized installations, and remove unused or unauthorized software  

Manage software assets

Manage software lifecycle securely and more easily with compliance software from Action1. Deploy business applications and security solutions, detect unauthorized installations, and deinstall software automatically. Your endpoints don’t need to be connected to a corporate network, VPN, or joined to a domain.

What Our Customers Say

Action1 slashed times to bring our environment in line with our IT security policies from 6 hours a week to just 20 minutes a week, which is 18 times faster than with our previous approach.

Luke Wolfenden

Lead IT Engineer, carwow  

With our previous tool, we were under constant risk, as 20% of our network was not being patched with security updates because they were off-site or not joined to our company domain. Action1 addresses this security gap by enabling us to establish a robust patch management program that covers 100% of our devices.

Joe Holder

IT Director, The Arthur Companies

We are audited for ISO 27001:2018, and patch management is one of the requirements. Thanks to Action1, we’ve set up patching policies that meet our organization’s needs. As a result, we update the whole infrastructure in minutes. We also leverage Action1 to monitor the state of our IT assets as required by ISO 27001:2018.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who has to comply with SOC 2?

SOC 2 is designed for organizations that provide services and host data on behalf of other companies, such as cloud service providers, managed service providers, and software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies. These organizations must undergo an audit by a third-party assessor to ensure that they meet the security and availability standards set forth in the SOC 2 framework. Once the audit is complete, the organization will receive a report, which can be shared with potential customers to demonstrate the organization’s commitment to security and availability. 

What are SOC 2 cybersecurity requirements?

Security requirements are the only ones that are not optional under SOC 2. It has a number of specific requirements for security, including: 

  • Developing and implementing written policies and procedures for security and availability. 
  • Protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. 
  • Regularly testing and monitoring security controls to ensure they are operating effectively. 
  • Implementing access controls to prevent unauthorized access to systems and data. 
  • Protecting against malware and other types of security threats. 
  • Regularly performing backups and disaster recovery procedures to ensure the availability of systems and data. 

    Overall, SOC 2 requires organizations to take a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity, with a focus on protecting their systems and data from a wide range of threats.
