London/New York, 10 February, 2022: SteelEye, the compliance technology and data analytics firm, has reinforced its commitment to ensuring institutional-grade data security by achieving System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 compliance.
The external accreditation demonstrates SteelEye’s ongoing commitment to best-in-class data security – a move the company believes will strengthen its growth prospects in North America.
SOC 2 is a gold standard in the financial industry that assesses firms’ safeguarding of customer data. Defined by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), it covers the principles of Security, Availability, Confidentiality, Processing Integrity and Privacy.
The SOC 2 accreditation follows a record year of growth for SteelEye, where the company saw revenues grow by 88 percent in 2021. The firm – which is headquartered in the UK – expanded into the US last year, appointing RegTech veteran Brian Lynch to lead its North American operations.
Brian Lynch, President of SteelEye Americas, said: “US financial firms are highly regulated and demand the highest levels of data security. SteelEye has always had robust processes and controls in place to ensure customer data is treated with the utmost care and confidentiality. The SOC 2 certification provides an independent confirmation of our commitment to our clients’ data security and opens opportunities for accelerated growth across the US and Canada.”
Matt Smith, Chief Executive Officer at SteelEye, said: “Having SOC 2 status puts SteelEye at the forefront of global regulatory compliance. The compliance landscape is constantly evolving and has been accelerated by the shift towards remote and hybrid work patterns. Our agile data platform, which is underpinned by the highest security standards, enables us to provide a truly unique solution for our clients’ regulatory needs.”
Founded in 2017, SteelEye today has over 120 institutional clients worldwide with offices in London, New York, Paris, Bengaluru, and Braga.
